In the Spring of 2017, the NICE Program Office updated and refreshed the NICE Website to better meet the needs of the NICE Community and visitors. The new website design features changes to site navigation and increased visibility to NICE news and events on both desktop and mobile devices.
In 2017 a multimedia page was added to the NICE website to archives videos, audio interviews, and other recordings that are sponsored by the NICE Program Office or feature NICE Program Office Staff as speakers.
Enhancements: overhaul of the web platform user interface and re-design of deployment processes, now over 70 unique challenges available.
Kick off of "Curator Crash Course" webinars which cover everything a new curator would need to know to get started using the NICE Challenges.
Kick off of "Meet the NICE Challenges" webinars which cover two challenges in depth each month.
