2011 & 2012
Falmouth University Interactive Prospectus
It was agreed that we could treat it more like a web application than a traditional website, so navigation routes are embedded in the views rather than presented in a traditional hierarchy.
The work altcom carried out included:
- Designing and building the entire system using the printed prospectus design and colour schema as the jumping off point.
- Hosting the web app within the Drupal content management system so it can be maintained by staff
- Creation of a shareable portfolio so prospective students can select items they are interested in and save and share them with family and friends, creating a personalised view of the prospectus and University.
- Training of staff to use the app (not much needed as it is managed from within the CMS)
The interactive prospectus has meant that print runs of the prospectus have been substantially reduced. Student can still download a browseable PDF if they wish or request a prospectus to be sent to them.
