* New look for Shoreline Web site goes live

The new look for the Shoreline Community College Web site went live Friday, June 15, 2012.

"This is the latest step in improving our Web presence, our face to the world" said Jim Hills, special assistant to the president for communications, marketing and government relations. “This past September, we began the process of converting the site to OU-Campus by OmniUpdate. OU gives us a robust content management system behind the site and allows us to give more content responsibility back to the various departments and divisions.”

 

Now, with OU-Campus in place, the college is able to easily apply the new look across the entire site.

 

“We still have some conversion work to do in some areas, but most of the site is moved and has the new look,” Hills said.

 

The new design is the work of Al Yates, a faculty member in the Visual Communications Technology programs.

 

The next steps will be to add the same kinds of navigation found on the homepage to all the other pages on the site. That will come over the summer as the college works with OmniUpdate to create and apply new templates to the pages. In addition to the new navigation, all the pages will get wider on the screen.

 

Working on the information displayed on the site will continue, too. OU-Campus allows many more users across campus to have access to pages. That training has been ongoing this past academic year and will continue as needed. 

 

The college will now start working with OU on a new mobile Web site. Shoreline was the first community college in the state to have mobile apps, launching apps for Apple products, the Android system and Blackberry. The college also already has a mobile Web site, but is looking to make improvements, Hills said.

 

“New mobile templates will allow college personnel to build out a more robust and dynamic experience for users on mobile devices,” Hills said. “Already our data show increasing traffic from mobile devices and the industry projection is for that trend line getting steeper and steeper.”
