New and improved

Friday, July 30th, 2010 by Wendy Pollock

We’ve listened to you. With your valuable feedback, we’ve been working on a new and improved version of ExhibitFiles, which opens today. Here are some of the features you may notice:

  • Bits – Those short posts we added a few months ago are now visible on the home page.
  • Profiles – We’ve added a tabbed section and place for you to pull in info from other social networking sites like LinkedIn.
  • Members page - We’ve added a sorting feature that highlights top contributors. Users without full names are no longer prioritized.
  • Search – Improvements include more targeted search and more result relevance.
  • Other improvements – We’ve improved browser compatibility and boosted speed.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing some of the results of the recent evaluation that helped us plan these and other changes still ahead. For now, many thanks to James Kassemi, Jim Spadaccini, and other members of the Ideum team; to Carey Tisdal, evaluator; and to our funder, the National Science Foundation.
