We don't just make websites! We're here to ensure that the websites we make are successful, whether you're launching a brand new site or just tweaking a site you've had for years. Our team can provide training, strategy, analytics, technical support, and more.
Website Design & Development
Developing new or updated Iowa State University websites is the core of what we do.
With nearly 500 websites developed and managed by our team, we support sites within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and other campus units. We've developed a platform using Drupal 9 that allows us to create flexible, beautiful, and accessible websites. Our platform enables a wide variety of technical capabilities and visual layouts while still being intuitive and easy-to-use for editors. Most importantly, the final product will be mobile-friendly, meet legal accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.1 AAA), and adhere to Iowa State brand styling requirements.
Training & Web Support
Websites aren't done once they launch! They are a living project requiring ongoing team effort.
As you make changes, updates, and come up with great new ideas for your site, our team is ready to offer ongoing web support. Web support requests might include minor site adjustments, assistance and advice, or fixes for bugs and errors. All web support inquiries should be sent to email@example.com, and can expect a reply by the end of the next business day.
We're also committed to providing in-depth training for website owners and editors. Our team is happy to schedule a hands-on training for any website editors on request, and we keep a library of detailed tutorials available at help.sites.iastate.edu.
Strategy & Analytics
Having an effective website is much more than writing content or technical specifications: it needs strategic thinking and goal-oriented planning. Are you reaching your goals?
We have team members experienced in providing insight and guidance to make your site effective. We'll help you define measurable goals, learn to interpret traffic data and analytics, and develop a plan for reaching your target audience. Whether you're trying to recruit students, promote your research, or develop a campus information resource, we can help point you in the right direction for achieving your specific goal.
