We will shortly be launching a brand new UOWD website, which will replace our current site (www.uowdubai.ac.ae).
The website is being redesigned to reflect our updated corporate image and branding. The changes include a new visual style for the whole website and a restructure of the site menu and inner pages to deliver a better experience for our users.
The redevelopment project is based on an assessment of market research findings, site analytic results and good practice models. The forthcoming implementation will be an exciting step in positioning the University as a contemporary institution driven by international best practice.
The new design incorporates the use of central carousels and a mega menu, providing faster access to other areas of the site direct from the homepage. By hovering your mouse over one of the menu options, the menu will expand, providing links deeper into the site. To make navigation easier, the new mega menu and footer will be carried through from the homepage across all inner pages.
The site content has been streamlined to ensure the information we provide is focussed and relevant to external users. We have also simplified the way current students access information, making MyUOWD the one-stop-shop for all enrolled student content.
Detailed information on all student services will now sit in MyUOWD, along with the subject information, course materials, timetables, directories, policies and forms already located there. The staff intranet will remain as a resource for all UOWD personnel.
The MyUOWD menu will be extended to include the full set of electronic resources relating to:
- All Prints bookshop
- Student Representative Council
- Student services
- University transportation
- Scholarships for continuing students
- Visa renewals
- University residences
- Graduation information
- Registrar services
The process of revitalising the website content will continue throughout 2013. Following the launch we will continue to monitor site analytics and seek user feedback in order to implement ongoing improvements to the style, content and functionality.
