The Dallas County Community Colleges, one of the largest and most prestigious community college districts in the country, partnered with Vision Internet to create a new model for community college websites. To determine the best way to organize information and to find names for content that everyone can understand, Vision Internet led an extensive research project that included surveys, stakeholder meetings, focus groups, and usability studies. The process resulted in eye-opening discoveries on how to best serve the target audiences.
The site features numerous custom interactive tools including calendar, staff directory, news, programs spotlight, photo album, Emergency Notification, sitemap, Members Only, and a Library Database Search Tool. Utilizing the Vision CMS, staff members are able to frequently update the website’s large number of pages with ease. All of this adds up to one of the best interactive community college websites on the internet.
