2.00 PM

Design, Access, Accessibility [A1]

Abstract This session will look at web design and navigation from various perspectives, including those of special needs users. Participants will be introduced to Bobby and will also use WebSpeak, a speaking browser. Paul Booth (DISinHE) will be contributing, and the session will include a showing of the W3C/RNIB Websites That Work video. Participants involved in organising the session are Andrew Aird and Paul Booth. Objectives
  • To gain an understanding of the dichotomy between visualisation and accessibility
  • To gain experience in the use of special needs access software and validation
  • To define criteria for accessibility, demonstrated in the design of a web page
  • To make specific, practical recommendations to Institutional Web Managers
Methodology The parallel session will include presentations by Andrew Aird and Paul Booth, showing of a video, hands-on work in groups of 5 and 3, group discussion and reporting back by group representatives.

2.00 PM

Intranets and Extranets [A2]

Abstract The workshop session on Intranets and Extranets will allow delegates to share experiences in this exciting area of information delivery development. The session will define intranets, explore the current state of play in institutions and tackle content and Intellectual Property, authentication and access control and the implications for personalisation of web access. Finally it will look at the software and tools which institutions have employed in their Intranet development and explore how institutions may share experience as they proceed with development.

2.00 PM

Web Site Navigation [A3]

Abstract Novice users navigate a web site by clicking on links. As expertise is gained, more sophisticated approaches to web site navigation may be used including search engines, entering URLs directly, making assumptions about URL naming conventions, etc. As we know, web users have limited patience, and if information is not readily available, users are likely to abandon their visit to the web site. This session considers approaches to web engineering which will help end users to navigate web sites effectively. Note that web site design will not be covered in this session.

2.00 PM

Legal, Decent, Honest and True [A4]

Abstract The WWW is fast becoming a legal minefield. Not only is the application of current legislation to the Web a grey area, but upcoming new legislation - particularly in the areas of copyright and data protection - may mean that current acceptable practice may not be good enough. In this session, we will be exploring the key issues. We will strive to clarify your understanding of the problems, and together aim to identify those areas that require action ... either by individual webmasters, or at a community level. In order to gain some real benefits from the session, we will use 3 breakout groups - Copyright, Data Protection and Acceptable Use Policy. Each team leader will attempt to clarify any uncertainties you may have and as a group you will be asked to formulate approaches to specific problems. Don't expect to get all the answers from this session ... but at the end we should be in a position to start asking the right questions - both individually and as a group.

2.00 PM

Metadata – Has The Time Arrived? [A7]

Abstract An important role of the institutional web site is to attract new students. Political changes together with the growth of the Internet is resulting in increasing competition for students - we can no longer rely on 18 year-olds automatically attending a UK University. The UK HE Mall aims to provide an entry point to UK Universities for potential students. It will help students choose not just the right university but also help in choosing the right course. The HE Mall will require more than a simple HTML page with links to UK University web sites. It is likely that the Mall will make use of metadata to provide rich and effective browsing and searching capabilities. Institutions will also gain benefits from the provision of metadata on their web sites, as this will enable more effective local searching, browsing and management services to be provided. This session will provide an opportunity to find out more about the HE Mall and to discuss the implications for institutional web managers. Session Aims: The aims of the session are:
  • To enable participants to find out more about the HE Mall.
  • To enable participants to identify the benefits of the HE Mall to their organisations.
  • To consider the tools needed to manage metadata on institutional web sites.
  • To explore how issues relevant to the HE Mall may also be relevant to Institutional web sites.
Participants involved in organising the session are Brian Kelly, Chris Harris and Alan Robiette.
