Video Interview

Joe Cafiero, Webmaster at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education, discusses the University's experience with Mediacurrent and his thoughts on Drupal.

Project Goals

Content Editorial Workflow

Mediacurrent helped UGA evaluate their needs from a content perspective to define the best choice that fits their organizational needs.

Code

Simplified maintenance

UGA needed to edit several individual domains to be able to update their websites. Drupal's multisite feature brought the sites under one domain, making content management much more efficient. 

Publishing

Content Synching

 It was critical to maintain a production site while supporting the development of the new site. Mediacurrent provided a seamless workflow solution for content administrators using advanced filtering and publishing options to allow logged in users to view and edit content transparently from the outside. 

Content Strategy

Streamlined Content Types

Maintaining a large number of content types was not desirable. Mediacurrent designed a master content template for courses that allowed the flexibility the University of Georgia required to accommodate variable needs for fields and access.

Our website development project with Mediacurrent has been one of the most productive and effective partnerships our organization has engaged in. We needed to create three different websites for our three distinct business areas – armed with wireframes already developed with another consultant. The Mediacurrent team was able to utilize our existing work and create websites we feel will both greatly enhance our customers’ online experience as well as our ability to increase our business goals. The experience with Mediacurrent has simply been awesome and we look forward to our continued partnership with them.

Theming

A Seamless Design

To ensure that the website was appealing to all of their buyer personas, Mediacurrent built a total of 3 new portal sites, each with their own unique design. This allowed users to seamlessly switch across multiple user interface designs based on the selected portal, allowing The University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education to target students, business professionals, and newly engaged couples.
