Martin Methodist College unveils redesigned website
September 26, 2013
Martin Methodist College has a completely new cyber-presence with the creation of its new website.
The internet address remains www.martinmethodist.edu, but that is about the only thing that is not new and improved. It marks the fifth redesign and function update in the last 13 years, as the college attempts to stay concurrent with both style and substance of the technology.
Among the new features are a complete new graphic design, an upgraded event calendar, reconfigured news section, and a pictorial staff and faculty directory. A major improvement is that this website is mobile responsive for complete function on tablets and smart phones.
This overhaul was the work of Abbie Stofel, who joined the college’s staff in the new position of director of digital marketing and webmaster in February of this year. Since her arrival at Martin Methodist, she has been working on the project, and she says the new look and navigation is in keeping with the college itself.
“Martin Methodist is a dynamic and robust academic institution, and we wanted our new website to represent that,” she said. “Our design partner, Luke Flener of Prolific, not only provided us with a striking design, but one that was also functional with a focus centered around the user experience.”
She also praised the work and continued support of Sitemason, the Nashville-based website development firm that has been Martin Methodist College’s content management system software partner since 2001.
W. David Jones, vice president for institutional advancement, said more such important steps forward are on the horizon.
“I am really excited about the improvements to our new website,” Jones said. “Our attention has been to have a heightened focus on meeting the needs of our website users. In addition, this is just the beginning of continued enhancements to this all-important communication portal.”
