The University of Waterloo has launched its new homepage at uwaterloo.ca.
The new homepage design supports the strategic objectives of the university. The design is based on a homepage content strategy with each element of the design serving a strategic purpose. The homepage is implemented in the university’s new web content management system, called the Waterloo Content Management System (WCMS).
In order to improve the quality of web content searches on campus, the University is acquiring a Google Search Appliance (GSA). The search appliance will be located on campus and will index the uWaterloo web space by crawling public facing pages. After the search appliance is deployed, it will eventually replace the current search at search.uwaterloo.ca.
Early fall. More communication will occur before the date.
