About this Site

This site is a project in progress. We will, with the help of CID's collected knowledge and experience, create a whole of use, purpose, form and semantics.

There are results from several different studies of CID's existing Web site (Användbarhet på WWW, CID-102). These investigations show that the presentation of information must be improved. One example concerns how different people can find projects and reports that are interesting for just them.

Except for normally available technique, we will apply the solutions that are under development in other projects in the Interactive Learning Environment area. Both concerning design of content and modelling. Our goal is to implement the “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines” (WAI). These guidelines explain how to make Web content accessible to people with disabilities.

The project will use methods normally used in architecture and industrial design, where there is a long experience of working with users expectations and needs.

The work is a co-operation between Interactive Learning Environments, User Orientation and Connected Communities.

Our belief is that the results will be usable for many of our partners and others as well.

At the redesign of CID's Web site in -97 great changes were performed concerning navigation, structure and maintenance. We have in the work group agreed on keeping the look at large and do the great changes in the way to present the projects. We will look closer to the relation between content and the situation of the target groups. User studies will be performed to follow up and test new ideas for design and content.

We will continue with developing methods and strategies for Web site design – with all user groups in focus.

Maria Engström, communication manager,
