The Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency was prompted to commission a complete overhaul of the site to help prepare teachers for the introduction of a new primary curriculum, due to come into force next year.
E3 Media undertook user-testing and research, and found that the site’s users wanted it to offer more interactive tools and rich media content.
‘Rather than featuring large amounts of text-based content, users will be able to interact with a number of collaboration tools such as a “curriculum design tool” and a “take the curriculum tour” video,’ says E3 Media joint managing director Stuart Avery.
The site includes a case study library that teachers will be encouraged to contribute to.
Phase one of the site is due to launch at the end of the month.
