The main component to this concept is the BBC Pocket. Pockets are pages curated by any logged in BBC user. Users can collect any type of material into Pockets.
Material can range from individual archive content or always updating episodic media such as a TV series, where some episodes have not been released yet. Users can follow each other's Pockets and many Pockets can be created by any one user.
BBC's target market is everybody, I looked to ensure the new online experience was easy for all. With the introduction of Widgets, users can personalise their BBC experience – whether it be to make it more complex and full of content or to strip the website back to it's barebones.
Pockets can be created to let users curate static and constantly updating content within one place. Pockets can also be followed, so a user may follow a Pocket created by his favourite Radio1 DJ about a particular show.
Users can 'Discover more Pockets' which will take them to a library of all public Pockets across the BBC. This can be seen as a 'store' for showcasing Pockets, but for free.
The menu dock is the universal navigation. It incorporates the standard page navigation with an all new notifications system. The notification numbers signify an unseen update to a Pocket the user is following. Hovering on an icon in the menu dock will show the sub navigation and the Pocket updates.
These updates are split into the categories/genres. For example, if a iPlayer TV episode has been added to a followed Pocket, then this will show up under the iPlayer icon.
Users who are not registered/logged in can continue to experience the BBC website, only without the personalised experience of; Pockets, Page options and notifications within the menu dock.
This allows for users who only wish to visit the BBC occasionally, the opportunity to do so, without the need to log in.
