Digital Framework

Our framework

We have created a shared framework which enables us to create consistent, coherent user experiences across all of our digital terrain.

Maintaining a consistent user experience across our digital terrain, is important for a number of reasons

  • It provides a recognisable experience, giving users the confidence to explore more of our online content.
  • It increases our efficiency and productivity by enabling us to move faster.
  • It allows our numerous services to develop collectively, rather than independently.

In order to deliver a quality experience, Digital Services in collaboration with key stakeholders will provide a framework to manage and enhance the University's digital estate (public web, intranet) enabling the delivery of the best possible experience for all audiences.
