So one of the key feedback items we have gotten from attendees of Cisco Live and Networkers Virtual is that the virtual environment is difficult to navigate as there are too many navigation options and the style is not consistent across the pages. We take this feedback very seriously and I am pleased to announce that on 6 April 2010 a major user interface and style treatment revamp was launched live.
Some of the key changes include:
- Implementation of a single top level navigation with drop down menu options to increase ease of use and awareness of the depth of content and peer networking available in the virtual environment.
- Consistent style treatment applied across all pages to enable a consistent user experience and continuity in brand through-out the virtual environment.
- Bottom toolbar implementation to provide quick access to key tools such as feedback, help, virtual briefcase, and the communication center. The bottom toolbar also allows for key messages and activities to be more easily viewed and digested via the toolbar banner ad and rotating marquee messages.
More enhancements are on the horizon to facilitate an even better hybrid event than we had in 2009 including a content interest tool that will allow attendees quicker views into content, the ability to purchase individual sessions via an a la carte registration option, some interactive gaming options, and deeper social media integrations with key platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
As we gear up for our 2010 hybrid event I encourage you to login to www.ciscolivevirtual.com and check out all the positive changes for yourself. Your feedback is valuable to us so please let us know what you think by completing the feedback form which as mentioned earlier can be easily accessed in the bottom toolbar.
