Our site redesign is a crucial next step for our company to stake a strong claim in the international education field.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 22, 2012
Abroad101, the world’s first and largest study abroad review website, has announced the launch of its newly redesigned site: studyabroad101.com. The redesign is a substantial makeover, not only upgrading aesthetics, but a major improvement in speed, design and ease of use.
The new website platform benefits various stakeholders including students, universities and advertisers. Students searching for a study abroad program can utilize enhanced browsing along with the technologically innovative map feature, making for a more interactive, visually stimulating experience. Universities who are currently using the leading free evaluation software can look forward to stronger program reporting, while current and future advertisers can take advantage of more targeted ad space with stronger lead generation tools.
Abroad101’s Chief Technology Engineer, Jamie Davidson, says, “I'm thrilled that we have launched this new, redesigned site as it leaves us in a very strong position for expansion. This new site is really just the beginning and it's a great catalyst for our continued evolution."
The new map feature allows students to search for programs more intuitively by viewing programs on an interactive globe. The map displays programs available in different areas as well as their overall ratings. The new site also holds a more robust section on scholarships available so the company can continue to provide the ability for anyone to study abroad, regardless of cost. Thus far, Abroad101 has provided $60,000 in scholarships to deserving students and hopes the new site will only further expand these opportunities.
Adam Miller, Co-Founder and CEO of Abroad101, is excited about this development as he says, “Our site redesign is a crucial next step for our company to stake a strong claim in the international education field and provide the necessary resources that the study abroad community needs.”
Abroad101 has grown exponentially across every metric for over three years and looks forward to leveraging the redesigned site to expand their community and provide a better, more comprehensive set of resources.
