Judging from the range of questions submitted, presenters for the new LDS.org, LDS Tools, and the Gospel Library for Windows apps captivated both an onsite audience at the Church’s Riverton Office Building and over a hundred online viewers who participated in the LDSTech broadcast on April 17. The following recaps a concentrated hour of inspiration and insight:

Jeff Isom explained the background and rationale behind recent and proposed changes to LDS.org, emphasizing evolutionary improvements over less frequent revolutionary changes. A guiding mantra has been to make resources easier to find online through better search capabilities and better navigation. Based on research and user feedback, test results demonstrated an improvement overall from 57% to 75% in ease of access performing 96 common navigation tasks. Several new navigation pages are planned and will be shared with Church departments and stakeholders before becoming final. New training and awareness materials are also planned and will be integrated to ease transitions. Look for the next upgrade in mid-May.
