Met Office: Educational website
After being awarded the Met Office education site contract, we instigated a test phase where relevant teachers and students reviewed initial concepts and designs. The leading UK education specialist EdComs were on hand and took part in a comprehensive usability study. The latter entailed state-of-the-art eye tracking technology, two-way mirrors and a varied testing panel. Only once these results had been analysed and the designs modified did development begin. The team, whose purpose was to help younger users engage with the site content, also created an illustrated character, ‘Weather Explorer’. The Met Office project was delivered within three months and conforms to the demanding AA-rated W3C accessibility standard.
