Recorded on November 16
Almost all news organizations have a website, but few have researched how the design of the site can affect how audiences interact with news content. The Center for Media Engagement at the University of Texas at Austin has done extensive research – what works, what doesn’t, and how to get the most out of a redesign. In this session, we will share our research findings and best practices for implementing our findings into your website.
