Phase 1: Strategy Development
Constant Communication with the Campus Community:
We recognize the importance of maintaining constant communication with
the Bethel community as we enter into the redesign process. We're
taking steps to provide numerous opportunities for stakeholder input
and feedback. We invite you to follow along and stay tuned for
upcoming announcements via our redesign Blog. We'll update this weekly and will provide insight into many aspects of the process.
initial online survey served to gather helpful information in
preparation for mStoner's mid-April campus visit. The survey was open
to the Bethel community and we received over 165 responses. Thanks to
all that participated! Additional surveys will be made available
throughout the redesign process.
Onsite Stakeholder Interviews: April 14-16
Members of the mStoner team were on campus April 14-16 to conduct intake meetings with stakeholders from across the University.
Public Q&A Session: April 16
Patrick DeMichele, a member of the mStoner team, offered a 2 hour
Q&A regarding the redesign process from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on April
16. This event was open to the Bethel Community.
A technical assessment of Silva, our content management system, will
also be included during the mStoner team's visit. Cam will meet with
members of Web Services team to determine any development needs that
may exist in preparation for the website redesign process.
BU Redesign Blog:
Web Services has created a redesign blog
to serve as an open platform for sharing updates, fielding comments and
questions, and documenting our progress as we proceed through the
Strategy Plan Document:
Based upon discovery from online surveys, onsite stakeholder interviews, public Q&A sessions, technical assessments, and numerous conversations, mStoner will generate a strategy document that outlines and defines constituency expectations, preliminary information architecture, and a project plan. Once this plan has been reviewed and approved by the steering committee and project team, we'll enter into Phase 2: Design and Production.
