Application Development

The Application Development UX Standards workgroup expands on the work of the WIGG group to include additional design standards and best practices for transactional business web applications developed internally to the University of Illinois.

The objectives are intended to create consistency across products, encourage reuse of code, and improve development efficiency.

Areas of focus include user experience, design, authentication, navigation, and accessibility.


  • Create a web presence to serve as a resource for application developers
  • Create a repository for code and design files to support sharing of work and best practices
