North Lindsey College is the leading provider of post-16 education in North Lincolnshire. The college caters for all types of learners, from School Leavers to Adult Education, and they wanted a website that would appeal to this wide audience. In addition, they wanted to seamlessly integrate their existing course feed to make updating the website simple.
What we did
Our experience in education and designing for young people over the last 10 years meant we had the right skills for this project. Our team designed a vibrant, image-led website with user experience as the main focus, to engage and lead visitors through the site.
Our development team were able to integrate an XCRI-CAP course feed into Umbraco CMS. This not only automatically populates the College website, it also provides the content for local prospectuses Lincs2 and LogonMoveon.
In addition, the site was built on a responsive framework for visitors to access on mobile, tablet and desktop.
The solution has improved the college process by providing a single point to manage the course feed across their website and the local prospectus systems. It has also led to higher engagement from visitors and, more importantly, an increase in applications to the college.
