I worked on lots of ideas around the development of Guides. From early concept prototypes, through to URL design, being the UXA in the BBC’s Knowledge and learning team during the development of this new format gave me plenty to get my teeth into.
Creating a content-managed rich online format is a challenge. Guides represented a genuine attempt to create a brand new web-native content format. Guides were launched on 19th January 2014. I think they represented an impressive step forward in the way we thought about responsive, interactive, mass-produced learning content from the BBC.
