Current Projects

Below is a list of our current projects. We help colleagues by guiding and assisting with web based projects as well as overseeing improvements to the university's wider digital presence. We also have a number of completed projects. If you would like to get in touch in relation to an upcoming digital project you are involved in, please email us at dewg@ucc.ie 

Web Content Strategy Audit and Analysis Project

UCC's web content strategist is currently undertaking an audit and analysis of the current state of web content on the university website from a governance, workflow, substance and structure perspective. This audit and analysis will culminate in a report to UMTO on the state of the website in terms of how it is currently managed, with a view to using this as the foundation for a subsequent web content strategy formulation project. 

Progress:

Data collection for the audit has taken place. The web content strategist is currently collating this information in order to develop a coherent report. The project also incorporates the development of a series of information sessions (Webshots) for content creators in UCC to help them make short term improvements to their sites following the recent redesign. The project has also seen the development of a series of reporting dashboards in Google Data Studio, which will be rolled out to all site owners / moderators during summer 2018. 

The report for this project is due for delivery end of May / start of June 2018. 

UCC Website Review 2017

Description:

The 2017 web review project hopes to modernise the look and feel of key UCC landing pages, as well as improving the overall governance of the website

Progress:

Following on from an extensive requirements gathering phase, a tender was issued, with Granite Digital being awarded the task or redesigning key UCC landing pages. Before sign off on the new designs a townhall meeting will be held, allowing all of the UCC community to feedback in on the design. 

Headshots Project

Description:

As part of the ongoing improvements to our digital presence, the Digital Estate Working Group has supported a free professional headshot opportunity for all staff, in the photographic studio in Audio Visual Media Services, Áras na Laoi. The professional profile photographs can be used across departmental webpages, IRIS profiles, LinkedIn profiles, in print, as well as across a number of other platforms.

Progress

The headshots project has been a great success, with hundreds of staff members taking the opportunity to boost their professional profiles. Further dates are being actively considered.

Search Engine Optimisation and Google Analytics

Description:

As part of our continual improvements to our digital estate, members of the DEWG have launched a project to audit our current approach to Search Engine Optimisation and Google Analytics to establish how we can improve this. 

Progress:

The project is in its initial stage with requirements gathering. A number of stakeholders from strategically important areas around the university will be involved in the intial stages.
