Help ED.gov Redesign Itself

| 1 Comment

The U.S. Department of Education is redesigning its Web site, and to get the ball rolling, wants to know how users navigate ED.gov.

Though they haven't asked for our input specifically on how to improve their site, we offer these suggestions to get them started:

* Bigger font, please.

* Better navigational categories along the left-hand side of the home page.

*Pretty it up, in general. For what to do, check out the Department of Transportation. For what not to do, check out the Department of Commerce.

* More user-friendly format for the main stimulus page.

What are we missing? Leave your comments at ED.gov or in the comments section below and we'll pass them along.

Michele -

You nailed it... I'd add one important suggestion:

Make a prime, easy link in the Recovery category for state and local school boards (and citizens) to ask Qs re proper use of stimulus funds for Title I, IDEA and Stabilization.

It took quite an effort to find the link to ask such a question -- which I did, and gratefully did receive a clear response. But it should be clearer and easier to locate.
