Ten things

Ten tasks, ten minutes each, ten ways to improve your module.

Think mobile

During peak times in 2018/19, 25% of Minerva sessions were on a mobile device. Follow these tips when adding content to improve the experience of those accessing Minerva on mobile devices.

Time to achieve: 10 minutes to familiarise yourself with our recommendations.

For 19/20 modules we have introduced a new module template. Don't change the template menu items but if you need to add menu items, make sure you:

  • Keep to letters and numbers as symbols aren’t always supported and won’t appear on some mobile devices.
  • Try to keep names concise and descriptive.

Files sizes

It’s good practice to keep file sizes low where you can – on a mobile device or slow connection users could be waiting minutes to download files/view images otherwise. If you target mobile devices remember on 4G connections data has a cost.

In particular images are often unnecessarily large.

Read our guide for tips on compressing files.

File types

For text documents/presentations we recommend using PDF for documents where possible.
