Since April 2015 the WISE project (WebLearn Improved Student Experience) has been supporting departments, faculties and other academic units to fast-track the development and improvement of their WebLearn presence in order to deliver an enhanced (and consistent) student digital experience, as well as an efficient and satisfying experience for staff.
Some of the key deliverables are now available in the form of four new WebLearn site templates. These can be used by a site maintainer in the process of creating a new site. The templates are based on the popular ‘box’ design for a starting page, which links to other pages or tools in the site. The text, links, and placeholder images can be modified by the site maintainer according to the purpose of the site.
The templates attempt to mirror the University’s structure in terms of department (school or faculty), programme of study, course or module, and individual tutor sites.
Sites created from the templates can be mixed, matched and linked according to a department’s required structure. The templates can be found on the Templates page on the WebLearn Guidance site. Please contact the WebLearn team for more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
