UFS premieres new website with responsive design for mobile use
2017-10-30


A project of almost two years culminated in the launch of a fresh design for the official website of the UFS on 30 October 2017.
 
World-class website
Through international benchmarking, the overall user experience (UX) has been improved, as well as the searchability of the site, which will assist in channelling more traffic to the UFS website. The new web design is entirely responsive, which means that users of mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones get to view the site in a customised screen size for their particular device. Since more South African users are browsing the web on mobile devices, this responsiveness addresses a pressing need in the sector.

Improving overall user experience
The improved UX of the website also ensures that users spend more time on the page. One new feature, for instance, is an interactive digital map of each of our three campuses.

This extended project was a collaboration of the Enterprise Data and Content Management division of ICT Services and the Unit for Social Media and Website Content in the Department of Communication and Brand Management.
