UNIVERSITY WEBSITE PROJECT

Developing a prototype (alpha) website

Posted by Stephen Thompson, Interim Deputy Director of Communications and Head of Digital Engagement, Corporate Communications


Our website protype will help you keep up to date with progress on the University Website Project and feed back to the project team.

You can now view alpha.sheffield.ac.uk

To help understand the requirements of an updated University website, and the CMS required to deliver this, we've created a prototype which we're calling the alpha website.

This is useful:

  • to see the progress as it happens
  • to allow people to provide instant feedback
  • for testing the website with users.

It is not what the final website will be or how it will be structured so please don't worry that you can't see all the features and styling you might expect.

Note, the prototype is only accessible on campus and is not indexed in search engines.
