WebTech making changes to MyWestern

MyWestern is one of the most visited websites on campus, and as it is critical to many workflows, WebTech has been conducting user studies to better analyze how it is used. Over the past year many new resources were added, making the original Quick Search list rather overwhelming, especially to those new to Western.

Transforming the list into a search box and putting the trending resources as the first things users see has helped users get to the page more quickly. Beginning on Tuesday, March 29, MyWestern will receive these changes. WebTech will continue to monitor how the site is used and adjust the site accordingly.

For the next two weeks, the original layout will be available to users by visiting, mywestern.wwu.edu/original. That page will redirect to mywestern.wwu.edu on April 12.
