Web relaunch of the University of Münster
What is it about?
The University of Münster is planning to relaunch its website. The project is being supervised by the University's Web and Design department and CIT. The first stage of the relaunch involves the redevelopment of the corporate web design and the conversion of the central website. The websites of the departments, institutes, centres etc. will then be migrated to the new design step by step and with support. According to current planning, the relaunch of the central website includes a new web design, a new navigation structure and a revision of the content and its presentation. There will also be technical improvements, which will then be rolled out. An exact time frame for the relaunch cannot yet be outlined. All stakeholders will be informed in good time about upcoming steps so that there is sufficient time for any work to be carried out.
November to December 2023 - Online survey on the website
The university-wide survey on the current website ended on 6 December. In addition to ongoing stakeholder interviews, the survey marked the starting point for the project and a needs analysis. The survey and the stakeholder interviews provide us with a revealing picture of opinions on the content, design and technology of the current websites. Together with the expertise of the Web and Design department and the CIT, this creates the basis for the next steps.
December 2023 to March/April 2024 - evaluation and needs assessment
We use the survey results to determine the main needs of the user groups. We expect to have analysed the survey results by the end of March and publish them here.
From March to June 2024 - project planning and preparation of further steps
With the needs identified, we will be able to outline project modules and steps in more detail and prepare the tender.
