Discovery has officially begun on Project Supernova!
The design team was on campus today. It was their first visit to Caltech (it was their first visit to Pasadena!) and it was a terrific day. The goal is for them to see firsthand (and to hear from the campus community) the things that make Caltech special, and I think we’re off to a good start.
In addition to the community forums that will take place tomorrow and Friday, we are hosting some focus groups. Today the team met with representatives from IMSS, staff, students and the Admissions team, and a couple key insights surfaced:
- The directory is the most used feature on the site.
- There’s a lot of information scattered around campus (physically and on various webpages). People want more effective search functionality and information organization.
- The people at Caltech love being here. From first year students to 25-year staff members – we heard how much people love being part of this community. That was really cool.
I want to thank all the people who joined us today – we couldn’t do this without you.
Tomorrow we have the first two community forums and I am really looking forward to those. I hope you will attend one of them if you can, and if not, that you will participate in the survey. We really want to hear from you!
