Re-envisioning the Online Presence of Education
Recognizing the importance of reaching K- 12 students, as well as their parents and teachers, much of the Minnesota Historical Society's web site is specifically aimed at these groups. While the existing web site is widely used, it has become unwieldy and difficult for the intended audiences to explore and engage with the Society's plethora of content and services.
Through this project, the Society completed an evaluation of the site to determine student and teacher needs, how they currently use the site and how best to deliver online products. The evaluation resulted in a plan that will be used to redesign the site to make it more user-friendly, easier to navigate and focused on delivering enriched academic resources.
