In September 2016 Cardiff University launched a new version of our undergraduate course finder, powered by programme data from our internal student record system.
The aim was to create a single source of course information for course approval, as marketing to prospective students, to be sent out to offer-holders as part of their contract and as a reference for current students.
In their IWMW 2017 plenary talk, Graham Bird, Jenni Taylor and David Hopkins explain how their experience delivering this project highlights many of the challenges facing University digital teams: maintaining a single source of information, governance and compliance issues, organisational change, cross-University collaborative working, and meeting the user needs of prospective students in a competitive marketplace.
The video of Graham Bird, Jenni Taylor and David Hopkin’s presentation is available on YouTube.
