Help ED.gov Redesign Itself

By Michele McNeil — July 20, 2009 1 min read

The U.S. Department of Education is redesigning its Web site, and to get the ball rolling, wants to know how users navigate ED.gov.

Though they haven’t asked for our input specifically on how to improve their site, we offer these suggestions to get them started:

* Bigger font, please.

* Better navigational categories along the left-hand side of the home page.

*Pretty it up, in general. For what to do, check out the Department of Transportation. For what not to do, check out the Department of Commerce.

* More user-friendly format for the main stimulus page.

What are we missing? Leave your comments at ED.gov or in the comments section below and we’ll pass them along.
