The new reader, published by myebook, went live on 1st May 2020 and hosts the last 12 issues of Focus magazine.
This change aligns with CILT’s strategy to be more digitally engaging, as we move our technology forward to ensure that your Institute is fit for the future.
These changes make the online magazine a more user friendly tool, and the product comes with many new features that make the magazine more interactive, easier to navigate and smarter to read; as well as benefiting our advertisers and improving our advertising proposition.
You can access the latest issue of Focus
now and by clicking the toolbar at the bottom you are able to (from left to right):
- read the magazine in full screen mode
- see a full list of individual pages from the latest magazine
- embed this issue or page on to a website
- access the last 12 issues of Focus
- navigate back and forward through the pages of Focus
- search for a keyword or phrase within the magazine
- send the magazine to a friend
- share Focus on social media
Part of the reason for upgrading to this new software is to allow the Institute to create a dynamic app for the magazine to be read on the go, wherever our members may be. Your Institute will be working on creating this magazine app after initial trials on the new platform have been completed.
We are aware that our members enjoy accessing our Focus archive. We are in the process of updating the Focus webpage on ciltuk.org.uk to include a full archive dating back to 2007, that will allow members to access more than 160 issues of your magazine and download each issue or specific pages if required.
Please continue to bear with us as we build this webpage and populate your Focus archive. We hope this will be live online by the end of the month.
