Less is more

Why is this important?

A lot of effort has already been invested in building and optimizing the digital tools available to all McGillians. Is the content you are thinking about writing already online?

  • People read very little on Web pages.
  • If you display only what's necessary, your users will have a better understanding of what's really important.
  • Use existing resources and tools to save time and money.

Checklist of things to do

  • Align with your users' interests
  • Kill the welcome mat
  • Remove unnecessary information
  • Avoid duplicating content
  • Build on existing resources and content whenever possible
