Website revamp – your views needed!

Virtual Microscope banner image: Come and discover our collections

Our website, now in its 8th year, is in need of a bit of a spring clean!  First and foremost is an upgrade to the software that makes the website work, called ‘Droopy’ or something I believe, to ensure it doesn’t fall over for lack of support.  (That’s what it sounded like to me in developer’s meeting, anyway…)

We are taking the opportunity to update the design and functionality of the website as well, so expect a change in appearance later this year (we will give you notice of exactly when this will happen nearer the time).  We will aim to preserve the key elements of the site – which is where you come in!  We want to know:

  • Which parts of the site you use/value most?
  • How you navigate to those parts?
  • What other features we could add/remove?

Please send your replies, and any other comments, to: virtual-microscope@open.ac.uk so we can pass your ideas on to the developers.
