As you have probably noticed, over the holidays we launched a redesign of our web site, edweek.org. Last Summer, we applied a similar update to the Teacher Magazine site, teachermagazine.org, and now we have carried many of the same design concepts over to the site of our flagship publication Education Week — including additional features and enhancements which will migrate back to the Teacher site once we’re finished. There are a few additional features and tweaks scheduled to roll out over the coming weeks. After that, we plan to finish the job, updating our “about” and Research Center pages later this Winter, and finally updating the look of Agent K-12 as part of a general upgrade of its software and user interface.
Features in the redesign include:
- a wider display, allowing users to see more content in the browser window;
- new article tools, to enable sharing with friends or via news tagging or bookmarking sites;
- additional community content from blogs and comments featured on the home page;
- more prominent placement of multimedia content on the home page and throughout the site;
- a cleaner, easier to read design, and more consistent navigation; and
- a list of our most popular articles, updated daily.
We hope you like what you see, and encourage you to let us know what you think, by either posting a comment below, or sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
