GLOBE Program Tech Update
As a result of requests from community members, and with input from Working Group members, GIO and Science Systems and Applications, Inc. (SSAI) are rolling out a number of enhancements to the GLOBE website to help you find the information you need more quickly and easily. Four new “Sphere” pages have been created: Atmosphere, Biosphere, Pedosphere, and Hydrosphere. Each page organizes all of the GLOBE information associated with that sphere onto one convenient page. In other words, all protocols, training material, blogs, campaigns, discussion boards, and other relevant items are brought together for each sphere on the one page.
In addition to these new sphere pages, the navigation is also changing slightly to help you find information. A convenient third-level, drop-down menu has been added so that you can quickly see content under each section of the site. Items have also been consolidated to simplify the menu. For example, the “Community” tab has a “People” section that will link you to communities that support different GLOBE “People” (partners, GISN, Working Groups, trainers, alumni, etc.). The “Join GLOBE” area has evolved into a new “Get Started” tab, which has information for potential new members from different groups (teachers, GLOBE Observers, STEM professionals, etc.) on the benefits of joining GLOBE.
GIO and SSAI hope that these changes will help you find information more quickly on the site, and help you take advantage of all of GLOBE’s resources and community.
