The Ventura County Community College District hired Aeronet to design and build the main public websites for the District and all three colleges – Ventura College, Oxnard College and Moorpark College. These websites were launched in June, 2014.
All four websites in this system needed to be designed in a way that is easy and consistent to manage by central IT staff as well as several hundred department editors. The designs for these sites needed to be consistent, but also distinct, reflecting the specific cultures of each of these four institutions. All sites needed to be optimized for smartphones, tablets and computers.
Aeronet lead the project definition and design process involving a large committee of more than 20 stakeholders from all four institutions. Through this process, we developed wireframes and then design mockups that brought together stakeholder concerns as well as data Aeronet pulled together through an online website survey of students, faculty and staff.
Aeronet worked together with VCCCD technical staff to build and deploy all four new websites in record time using Drupal. Students, Staff, Faculty and the public are using the new VCCCD websites more than ever before. These four websites offer an unprecedented level of imagery, information, mobile compatibility and flexibility.
