New re-design for Student Record System

Posted by dw75 at Oct 11, 2013 01:15 PM |
During the summer the University's central Student Record System has undergone a major re-design. The system uses a web based version of SITS known as eVision. The new design is scheduled to go live soon.

The Student Record System as it's currently known hasn't been re-designed since 2005, during which the internet has moved on greatly. As part of the new branding the system will become known as MyStudentRecord and will feature many significant improvements:

  • Where possible the layout will be responsive. This means the user experience for students on mobile devices should be greatly improved and also for desktop users with widescreen monitors.
  • Less reliance on table usage and a lot of old code removed
  • A clear and simple layout and design will make using the system easier
  • A separate University of Leicester style sheet. Making future upgrades simpler
  • Where possible a consistent use of styling for all buttons, text and boxes
  • Minimal design uses virtually no bitmap graphics so will be faster to use
  • JQuery has been used to create tabs and accordions, making navigation more intuitive
