Our new website development is progressing and a detailed programme of user testing has recently been undertaken to ensure that it meets the needs of members and stakeholders.
Feedback has been positive and we are very grateful to all those testers who took part and were so generous with their time. Overall, the participants felt the site looked clean and uncluttered and that navigation, structure and newly written content were much improved.
The new website will go live at the end of the summer. This is the first exciting phase of ongoing digital developments at the IFoA. During the coming months we will be also be launching a Chinese microsite, which will contain region-specific information and promote our members in the Far East.
We don't intend to stop there. In the next phase of development, after the launch of the new website, we will be making significant improvements to the search facility, reorganising more than 10,000 documents already on the site so that members see a noticeable improvement in search results.
Other ideas for future enhancements include:
Online collaboration tools
Online networking tools
