The internet-savvy society compels every entity – regardless of its industry– to get a web presence.

By and large, every institute has a website to keep the contemporary, never-offline generation posted. The institute along with web development agency strives to create internet sites that are engaging in terms of visuals, content and navigational structure.

  • No communication gulf between institute authorities and website designing agency

The best educational website design is conceived whenever it reflects the principles and spirit for which an institute stands for. For making an excellent web design, the foremost requirement is to bridge any type of communication gap existing between the website development firm and institute’s authorities. An experienced website designing player communicates to the institute’s personnel on a periodical basis to get an insight of their requirements and holistic values.

  • Format should not be hard on the eyes

Always emphasize on the format of a website. An internet site’s format includes use of colors and font styles as well as sizes. The entire format should make the site simple to read. A website’s format that is not user-friendly has a high bounce rate. Further, a consistency in format must be sought; i.e. the entire site – each of its web pages – should have a similar tone.

  • A separate homework board

Several institutional sites have a separate section where teachers can post the homework for students. Further, such a section is imperative for parents to keep a track on their child’s curricula. 

  • Event dairy

This is one of the most significant sections, which should be present on an institutional internet site. The event dairy must give faculty members, students and parents a view of the education institute’s annual events.

Institutional web design India has spread its wings as more and more schools and colleges are coming up with their own internet sites. By harboring its necessity, website design education has become prominent in the broad educational landscape.

What A School Website Should Have?

Content is the life of any website. Images or flash videos on a website can only allure visitors, but what makes them stay is the content. Special consideration must be given while designing content for the website for schools. Often, in the process of deciding which content should stick onto the website, some content editors and web designers throw out the baby with the bath water.

Deciding the worthiness of content on a website, especially for a school, is not simple. The writers, editors and web designers must know the audience. Primarily, the audience of education websites comprises students, parents and faculty members alike. The reams of information must be placed on the website with painstaking organization.

In general, the following information should find space on a school’s website.

The school’s information

A school’s website should have a page dedicated to the generic information such as the institution’s telephone number, driving directions and full postal address. Also, mentioning the school’s boundary is useful. The generic information might also include school’s history, awards received, mission statement and other interesting facts.

The policy of school

The school’s policy must be included on the website. The information about school’s policy consists of dress code, graduation requirements, code of conduct, and the like. Publishing such policies helps the reader get an idea about the school’s values.

 Event calendar

A webpage must be earmarked for listing the events, which will be happening throughout the year in the school. The calendar of events is the best way to keep parents, students and teachers updated about school happenings.

Links to resources

Providing links to students and teachers about the resources has been a helpful practice done by many schools. However, the internet site’s administrator must keep a check on whether these links are working or not.

A school’s internet site should have the above mentioned content. Other requirements of content can be determined easily if there is no communication gap present between web designers, content writers and school authorities.
