Search, Site Speed, Grad Student Usability

Search

We've wrapped up the research and discovery phase for this project and are beginning development for the new search.umn.edu. For ongoing updates, join the Search at the U Google group.

Do You Know Your Site's Speed?

Recently I've seen a couple of articles, like this one, about page load speed and how to best optimize your pages for both mobile and desktop. There's a couple of ways to go about testing this, but a quick and dirty way to check a single page can be seen with Google's PageSpeed Insights.

Prospective Graduate Student Usability

In May, we will go into the usability lab to observe prospective graduate and professional students' journey to find info about the U. This usability session will be done in the same manner as the session we conducted last fall for prospective undergrads. We'll share our findings with this group.
