The Northwestern University Global Opportunities site got some minor upgrades this morning. When using the search a user will now get a ‘tooltip’ pop-up alerting them that they are searching the Program database and giving them a link to the People Directory.
As NUAMPS, along with the NUGO staff, have monitored the usage of this site, we have found that there was some slight confusion when users were looking for a faculty member and searching for them within the Program Directory. We want to provide the user the with best experience possible, and to do that we decided that giving the user an unobtrusive warning before they performed their search was the best option. Addtionaly once the user has made a search at the bottom of each page of results is another option to search the People Directory (or the Program Directory) depending on the search that was performed.
Special thanks to Cary Lee for getting this implemented!
