Pulaski Technical College launched its redesigned Web site on Friday:
The new Web environment marks a dramatic improvement in the appearance, navigability, accessibility and usability of the college's site.
All the main and interior pages of the site-- for example, the homepage, current news, information for current students and prospective students--have been redesigned and reorganized in the first phase of an ongoing project aimed at improving and updating the college's Web presence.
"Pulaski Tech recognizes that an easy-to-use and attractive Web site is essential if the college is to continue to provide quality services and to remain competitive," Carol Langston, vice president for college advancement, said.
Lennon Parker, Web communication specialist in the Public Relations and Marketing office, coordinated redevelopment of the site in conjunction with Aristotle, a Little Rock Web site and interactive multimedia design and consulting firm. Others providing photography, design and editorial contributions to the Web site included Amy Bonds, creative services manager; Tracy Courage, communication/special events manager; Tim Jones, director of public relations and marketing; and Langston.
Parker, who received an Associate of Applied Science degree from Pulaski Tech and joined the college staff in 2004, will be responsible for day-to-day maintenance of the Web site. Future phases will include a new Ottenheimer Library Web site, an updated calendar feature and enhanced Campus Connect pages.
"We wanted the site to have a more modern look, but mostly we wanted to make the site even more user-friendly for our students, faculty and staff," Parker said.
The college also will launch a new portal in spring 2007, which will serve as a gateway to all Web services for students, faculty and staff and will feature a single log-in and password for improved accessibility.
