OVPUE unit websites will each be tailored to the requirements of the relevant stakeholders. Websites will factor in the intended goals that units have for their sites, and those of audiences that consume OVPUE services.
While the sites will retain a distinct appeal to each intended audience, they will have a common brand and signature that identifies them with OVPUE.
Websites will be built using the OVPUE website template(s). OVPUE website and application templates will be updated on a regular basis to accommodate new requirements for websites and applications. As the templates evolve to accommodate new requirements, template versioning will be employed to identify and track template instances in use.
New unit websites developed by IT will be delivered in a form that allows the unit to update and modify many aspects of the site structure and content. Training on this functionality will be given before the publication of each new website.
All OVPUE websites will be developed or reengineered to meet standards for web accessibility, including semantic HTML, screen reader accessibility, and the recommendations of WCAG 2.0/ISO/IEC 40500:2012.
Where possible, IT will follow the mobile web accessibility recommendations of the World Wide Web Consortium. IT will also leverage university resources for web accessibility where possible.
In collaboration with OVPUE Public Relations and Marketing, IT will provide guidelines for web multimedia communication and help build and maintain the web infrastructure supporting multimedia communication. IT Support Services will manage web multimedia service accounts and access centrally.
IT will provide recommendations for leveraging web analytics for the evaluation of campaigns and outreach activities pursuant of business goals. All new websites and applications will be configured to collect usage data for reports and analytics. A link to the privacy notice on collection, usage and disclosure of non-personally identifiable information will be accessible from each of the sites.
