The home page, the overall site designs and templates and the chat interface are all now built so we are now focussed on Encyclopia. This is the most important part of Pia for us as, put simply, we want to be the world’s best at delivering investor education.
Our editor-in-chief, Niamh, is busy refining the first few levels of Encyclopia whilst our development team are building the components of the pages. All of our content is served up by a bespoke content management system, that will allow us to deliver an experience like no other in the world of financial services.
Video forms a key part of our content strategy. This is driven by the research that we have carried out relating to the best forms of content to help people learn. Therefore, an important element of Encyclopia is our bespoke video player. It has been created to encourage users to watch and engage with the videos as much as possible. More on the videos soon, but for now see a short clip about how you can interact with the video.
And now, here is a sneak peek at the actual content structure and style of the pages. You will have noticed that we have very deliberately steered clear of drab and un-inspiring stock imagery.
And finally, you are welcome to head over to YouTube and check out a walkthrough of one of the pages of content if you want to get more of a feel for the site.
