The College is enhancing and redesigning its website with an anticipated launch in spring 2021. The goal of the redesign is to create a website that is more user friendly for the public, and easier for registrants, facilities, and applicants to fulfill their regulatory obligations. A key to achieving that goal is ensuring design decisions are based on user research and feedback from key audiences.
Registrant user testing opportunities
To gather feedback from registrants, a user experience testing participant pool has been set up to inform interested registrants of testing opportunities over the next few months.
The participant pool will be the first to be notified of both paid and unpaid testing opportunities. To join the participant pool, sign up here.
Medical office assistants and transcriptionists
There will also be paid and unpaid user testing opportunities specifically geared towards medical office assistants (MOAs) and transcriptionists, as many are frequent users of the College website.
Interested MOAs or transcriptionists can sign up here to express their interest.
Updating web browsers
The new College website will be hosted on an upgraded platform. As such, some internet browsers will be unsupported on the new website.
Users will need to upgrade or switch browsers if they are currently using Internet Explorer 10 or older. They may also suffer a degraded user experience if they are using an older version of any other browser.
Supported browsers will include Internet Explorer 11, and the most up-to-date versions of Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Safari.
