We’re in a “soft launch” period and we’ve organized our homepage like many community homepages: around the major sections of the community: Welcome Center, Our Blogs, Knowledge and Support, etc., etc.: https://community.cengage.com
We have some great posts already, but they’re buried in these sections. I’m imagining someone coming to our site with a burning question about, say, how to motivate students (ours is a community aimed at higher ed instructors). As currently configured, I don’t think visitors would know where to find suggestions regarding this topic. I mean, who really wants to “Read Our Blogs” or “Join Our Conversation”? People want answers.
I suppose we could use a tag cloud…
But maybe I should organize the page a little like MumsNet does: with big rectangles devoted to the major topics of interest?
Any support/advice appreciated,
