In my capacity as Web Coordinator at the University of Bolton I have developed many versions of the university website over the past 10 years. The current version is still in transition as the new templates are applied to the rest of the websites across the university.
xhtml | css | content management | staff training | adwords | facebook page
The current website makes use of html5 and css3, the whole navigation of the website has been overhauled, and a new website architecture has been put in place moving the focus of the website to the subject areas and course finder pages.
Facebook, Twitter and other sharing buttons have been implemented across all the new webpages, and also Facebook ‘Like’ and Twitter ‘Follow Us’ buttons are present. A click on the ‘Like’ button is added to the university page on Facebook. This has helped to increase the likes to over 5000, and Twitter followers to more than 2000.
During my time as Web Coordinator I have also developed the Webpublishing Guidelines website that deals with everything from alt tags on images to Intellectual Property and Copyright law.
Below is a gallery of some of the previous versions of the university homepage that I have designed.
