New IT Instructions site Aalto IT Help is now live – you have a chance to suggest improvements!

You have a chance to contribute towards the development of IT Services’ new instruction site, Aalto IT Help, by giving feedback.

Aalto IT Help is in test use during 1.-15.3. and we aim to receive as much user feedback as possible.

Based on your feedback, we will make necessary changes to the website. It is possible that some glitches can be found on the website during the test phase and we kindly ask you to report them along with your other feedback.

Aalto IT Help can be found here: https://it.aalto.fi/

How to give feedback:

What is Aalto IT Help?

Aalto IT Help is a public IT instruction site, which is open to everyone. The site aims to respond better to the users’ needs by increasing e.g. clarity and findability of the IT instructions. The contents of all IT instructions have been renewed and the instructions have been updated so that they would serve the users better.

Why?

Based on feedback, users had difficulties to find information on Inside’s IT instruction. Some of the instructions were outdated, the right instruction was challenging to find or the content was difficult to understand.

On the new Aalto IT Help site, we emphasized fluent user experience so that the user would find the instruction in need quickly and discover the answer to a problem efficiently.

How?

  • The structure of each instruction has been modified clearer in order to improve readability. Every instruction follows numerical step-by-step order, more screenshots are included, important notes have been highlighted and sign in links are added.
  • The user can search instructions e.g. by using a search box, clicking a tag or opening alphabetical all instructions. There are also titles of similar instructions shown beside an individual instruction to guide the user.
  • Different language versions (Finnish and English) function more efficiently on the new site and it enables translating an individual instruction just by one click.
  • Aalto IT Help is also responsive with mobile devices.
