‘Dumbing Down’ – Making the UCE Website More Accessible

Brian Lantz, UCE gave a plenary talk on “‘Dumbing Down’ – Making the UCE Website More Accessible” at the IWMW 1998 event.


The University of Central England’s Website has gone through three versions. The first was simple, largely text derived from printed sources. Graphics were added in version two, with frames and some simple Javascript in version three. Version four is being developed with the support of a commercial firm with a view to making the site a better marketing tool which is more accessible, more interesting and with fewer gimmicks. This talk hopes to analyse the success of this process and provide pointers to how we hope to develop the site, with commercial support (?), over the next 18 months.
