Custom Website to Share Education Research
The Wing Institute is an internationally recognized thought leader in evidence-based education. They needed a new organized website to continue to share their knowledge and vast library of related resources with school administrators and other researchers in the education field.
Replacing an outdated CMS with a modern, flexible system
The old website used a soon-to-be unsupported content management system (CMS) with a homegrown database. Over the years, The Wing Institute had outgrown the site and the organizational structure had fallen by the wayside. In short, a totally new website was needed, pronto.
Artfully organizing and associating complex data
The website design combines logical site navigation and strong graphics and heuristics to help site visitors quickly find the information they need. The interior page designs provide for multiple types of content including abstracts, author citations, reference lists, embedded PPTs, and videos. Custom development and architecture organizes the large volume of information and deftly creates multiple data associations sitewide.
Intuitive search tools for website visitor and administrators
The Wing Institute has a small staff so they needed a website that was easy to administer. The new website’s admin area includes multiple databases which are programmed to allow adding a record to multiple pages. Search features help administrators locate pages and resource materials quickly. New research is added with ease.
An important task is keeping the Evidence-Based Education community apprised of the latest research. A robust blog on the website provides SEO for the website and content for the organization’s newsletter.
