Presentations & Sessions

 

APOLLO 2  (The Official UF Health Website Theme) DEVELOPMENT & REDESIGN
Carlos Morales, Director of Web Services, will discuss the results of the Apollo template 2.0 survey (distributed to everyone in 2016.). This presentation will review the feedback and features requested by the survey respondents, and provide a summary for how our website editors and administrators would like to see the official UF Health website theme upgraded.

 

GRAVITY TOOLS SUITE DEMONSTRATION
Nina Trombi will demonstrate how to use the Gravity Suite of tools to build an efficient and self-sustaining office workflow system. In this presentation you will learn how to plan and diagram a workflow for approval processes. Then, using Gravity Forms and Gravity Flow, users will learn how to quickly gather and route their forms to other users, track approvals, and keep all parties up-to-date. Finally, using Gravity View, users will learn how to make quick and customized pages that will use their own form data to display in an easy and accessible format.

 

CREATING A USER-CENTRIC WEBSITE
Jeff Stevens will walk you through the process of developing a site that is structured for your users and their goals. Sometimes, in the construction of our sites, we don’t take the time to test and iterate our sites to meet the expectations of our users. In this presentation, we’ll go through the process of developing a site that is structured for your users and their goals, rather than by internal organizations that can create a barriers to clear communication and goals.

 

TESTING THE USER EXPERIENCE
Greg Turner will introduce the concept of “usability” and discuss tools, strategies, and outline specific ways our new usability service can help you improve the usability of your own website, as well as offer up some solutions that can give you concrete data about your users and what they really want from your site. 

 

SPOTLIGHT—CREATIVE SERVICES
Garrett Hall, Director of Creative Services, will discuss the importance of adhering to UF Health identity standards on the web, and introduce some of the services offered by Creative Services.
