The Department of Education is redesigning and modernizing its current website to provide a seamless digital experience for the American public, according to a department blog post.
The Department of Education started its new website planning in the fall of 2019, creating internal innovation teams, gathering external input, conducting user research, and consulting with experts. The department says its current web analytics show the need for a website revamp to improve user experience and communicate with the American public “in the best way possible.”
“One of the biggest problems: it’s been awhile since we’ve cleaned up our content. For nearly 20 years our website has been accumulating content without regular consideration of whether things are still relevant, up-to-date or useful,” the May 17 blog post says.
