What makes good University website design?
Most of the same points in our article on school website design also apply for University websites. In addition, we’d suggest that the following contribute to good University website design:
Incorporation of Social Media
Universities generate a huge amount of social media. We would recommend that as well as generating strong communities within various social media sites, it’s important to bring the best of this content within the University website itself. As well as showing which bits of its own content are gaining traction via retweets, facebook likes, and google plus, Universities can pull social rich content into its own site.
Interaction with University Computer Departments
Universities are often well resourced with computing staff. We seek to work with departments to make the most of their infrastructure, and to deploy websites that are easy to manage and fit in with current structures.
