Aloha College educational website

Wed,8 May 2013 by Black Elk Studios Design

Complex educational website designed using latest tendencies and innovations so the college would be well ahead of their competitors.

The website has been produced using Wordpress content manager with a variety of plugins some of which we had to develop from scratch. Several thousand lines of PHP and Javascript code have been written in order to adapt content manager and its plugins to specific needs of the college.

International college website designed having usability in mind

New college website features many custom innovations that were carefully designed and developed combining server side PHP dynamism and Jquery Javascript libraries for special effects. These include custom slideshows, slider menus, photo previews, innovative contact forms with disappearing text etc.

We also had to build custom tools to import hundreds of news and events from their old website. Old content has been organized by years and months so it would be easily accessible by website visitors.
