EdWeek.org Gets A New (Wide) Look

The Wall Street Journal isn't the only paper getting revamped these days. Just unveiled this week (in conjunction with an "open house" that makes all their content free), EdWeek's new online look is really WIIIIDE, with three hefty columns in a row instead of the old-school two-column look (as in this blog) or two narrower columns on each side and a bigger middle one (as in the NYT site). And, like lots of homepages these days, it's nearly overwhelmingly busy.

I wish the middle/new content section was bigger than the other columns so that it was clearer visually that that's where the good stuff is, but what do I know about website design? There's lots of new multimedia (pic galleries, audio) to check out, and the three-column format is fairly readable as long as you've got a big enough screen. And, of course, the content -- check out the article about Ford's education legacy -- remains strong.

There are some things I'm not sure I will be able to find that were on the left sidebar, but I like to new layout.
