Columbia Basin College desired to create an engaging online platform for effective communication between faculty and current students plus an informational resource for prospective students. Vision Internet created custom tools to realize these goals, and the medium sized, 7,000-student community college now has a website that rivals some of the country’s largest universities.
With the help of the visionCMS™
and its interactive components
, the new Columbia Basin College website has become a powerful tool for current and prospective students as well as parents, faculty, and staff. The updated design was created with content relevance and navigation simplicity in mind. Mega menus, clickable scrolling slideshows with taglines, and detailed interior page design can all be attributed to the success of the transformed website.
Working with the CBC in-house developers, a number of customized components were developed during this project. A Members Only directory was created; e2Campus Alerts were integrated into the site; and campus locations and room numbers were added to the interactive calendar component. This tailored technology gives site visitors a renewed sense of direction as they utilize the website.
