Post-secondary websites

Share & Comment
This week, post-secondary websites under review -

Both Capilano and Douglas have traditional websites with drop down menus from the top of the Home page and easily navigable links throughout the page. Capilano's entry page does not require scrolling (my screen resolution is 1920x1080) so everything is available to see straight away (big plus point). However, the result is a more cluttered landing page and smaller font. Both sites have a scrolling slideshow of current topics refreshing  a viewer's interest and both offer links to social media (Douglas apparently has more social media savvy than Cap).

Langara's website is different; it opens up left-to-right, which is a real boon for my nice new wide screen monitor. This is a new-to-me experience and takes a little getting used to, but everything is there and easy to find. The hugely visual display replaces hard-to-read text and makes navigation a breeze (at least, that's what I think). The large scale photographs used as backgrounds are sumptuous - they must be a real draw to prospective students. The whole website is beautiful and functional.

Apart from new graphics and design elements, the new Douglas website is not, IMO, that different from the old one. In fact, when you dive deeper into the site, the old web pages are still there. I like the new colours, but the layout doesn't make the nest use of a wide screen with everything clustered into the centre. Navigation is as easy/difficult as it always was but I do hate the body text on the Home page - it jars with the new logo.
