The first change is an improvement of the webpage design, making it more accessible for the disabled. Government designated standards required for any disabled people to be able to use the homepage normally. The previous homepage was inconvenient for persons who are visually impaired because the ARS service was not understandable for them. The new homepage provides everyone, whether handicapped or not, readable service. And users can access the same format of the Dongguk homepage whether they get on the Internet by iphone, android version, safari, or google chrome.
The second change involves communication inside and outside campus. Using active SNSs such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Cy-world and blogs on the Naver site, homepage users can access news and videos about Dongguk University easily. Through these changes, Dongguk University seeks for diversity of information flow. Homepage users can share or link information about Dongguk on their virtual homepages and write comments freely.
The final change is improving the user environment. The Dongguk University homepage has improved its ‘User Interface.’ Menu formation has been improved. On the previous homepage, we can see the sub functions when we click on main functions. But, on the new one, we can see the overall menus from the sub functions to detailed information. Homepage users can find what they want to know about in Dongguk homepage. A newly-added menu is ‘Media Dongguk.’ Users can see ‘press release’ and ‘news clipping’ menus more easily. And users can also access The Dongguk Post homepage by just one click.
Yoo Kwon-joon, a team leader of the strategy & public relations department said, “if the last homepage was one-way, this one is a two-way homepage. The new homepage not only provides news about Dongguk University but also seeks to communicate with students, personnel, faculty, and outside users. Errors on the new homepage will be modified immediately if they are found.”
