We redesigned the Wellington College website with the aims of reorganising the content, making the site more news-driven, giving staff more control over relevant sections, and delivering a fresh new look.
The site uses the latest version of our proprietary Content Management System, Pagelets 9, to make updating, managing and publishing content fast and simple. With Pagelets, staff at Wellington can use “Page Templates” (for instance, News and Events) to create new content within minutes. An image focal tool means that one image can be reused in multiple places on the site, and will automatically crop to fit the page template while maintaining the focus.
Merging a Twitter feed on the news stream has helped to keep the site fresh and dynamic. We also integrated a more advanced publishing engine to empower staff to easily add, publish and manage content.
A mailing list and mailing list sign up were created so that staff can quickly communicate with other staff members, parents and pupils.
Another focus area was the Wellington College Learning Hub. This is a secure area of the site where teachers can upload resources (like documents, videos and links) and share them with specific classes or groups of pupils.
