IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The University of Iowa says it will launch a new design for its home web page for the first time since 2008.
The university says the changes aim to improve a site that has been visited 11 million times by 2.4 million people this year.
University official Lin Larson offered a preview of the changes in a university article posted online Tuesday. He says the redesign "isn't just a face-lift, but a fresh start."
He says the new site should make menus simpler to navigate and work better on mobile devices.
Larson says the designers chose to make information for new users one central focus of the page, www.uiowa.edu.
