Online Student Hub has become to complicated.

The Online Student hub has recently been updated, getting rid of the colour coded tiles and replacing them with long lists. There are now too many buttons, and the lists don't even align up well, so everything is just all over the place with very little structure. It takes too long to find even basic things like Blackboard, Students Union, or Library Resources. It is not at all practical and certainly not user-friendly. 


It either needs to be changed back to how it was, or redesigned to be more accessible. Regardless, it just cannot stay as it is at the minute.

    My new student hub doesn't look like that, its more neutral tones and has a more organised layout. It's taken getting used to but I don't mind the change now.

    Everytime I go on it the blocks are in a different place everytime I log in so I can never find it easily it's horrible no organisation way to much on the hub it was alot easier before

    I had the colours changed on the old version which is why they’re different now to the default grey version, but the placement of the buttons isn’t great, they move all the time. That’s just how mine load, I’ve not moved anything and can’t find anything easily...

    I absolutely hate it. It was fine before and worked fine. Now it's confusing and very difficult to use. Please put it back the way it was!

    Far too complex even with customising it to remove certain blocks and changing the colours. Much rather have the old version back.

    I spent about half an hour today reorganising and colour coding all the tabs on the new hub and when I clicked save all my tiles had been jumbled up, were all over the place and none of my changes had been saved. It's awful!
