For the first time in almost a decade, TTI’s internet site has been completely revamped and is available to the public starting Sept 4. “This website represents months of full-time work from dozens of people who have brought our organization into the 21st century,” says TTI’s Chief Information Officer and Internet Project Manager Kassandra Agee-Letton. “It is truly a state-of-the-art site that is interactive, dynamic and can be updated minute-by-minute.”
The site features news articles, a vast selection of research reports and projects, a licensed Google® search engine, and a weekly selection of featured TTI researchers. “We think the new site is crisp, clean and easy to navigate,” says Richard Cole, who led the project for Communications. “We are most proud of its dynamic characteristics; meaning that its content is connected to numerous databases which allows information to be distributed throughout the site. And the searches are lightning fast . . . much better than before.”
As part of the website redesign, students, employees and outside professionals offered feedback on the site including ease of navigation, overall look and other factors.
Although the site is available today, some fine-tuning and other improvements will continue as needed.
