“Education touches everyone and it was an honor to work on such an important site,” said Solodev founder and CTO, Shawn Moore.
Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
Solodev, a full-service website and mobile app development company, today announced that it has launched a new website for the Florida Department of Education (FDOE). FDOE serves more than 2.7 million students in the state’s more than 4,200 public schools and 28 colleges. The clean, modern-looking site was designed by Solodev to facilitate the needs of FDOE’s core constituents: teachers, school administrators, students and parents. The responsive design website was developed to be fully optimized for all mobile device types and features an interactive news feed, video gallery and social media integration.
“Education touches everyone and it was an honor to work on such an important site,” said Solodev founder and CTO, Shawn Moore. “It was a true collaborative effort with the DOE staff and the way they were able to quickly take over management of the site is a testament to the power and ease of use of our software.”
The site was built with Solodev’s enterprise content management system and includes several custom functionality modules that make it easy for FDOE staff to keep site content fresh with news, images, videos and announcements.
Solodev migrated 3,500 pages of content from the previous site and 20,000 total digital assets such as documents, images and media files. After the site was initially developed and populated with content, FDOE staff took full ownership by adding new sections and pages in preparation for launch.
The new FDOE site is ADA compliant and the improved navigation makes it easier for users to quickly find the most requested content. Solodev configured and provides ongoing management for the site’s robust hosting environment which was developed to scale in response to demand with capacity to accommodate up to 100,000 concurrent users if necessary. The site currently averages more than 25,000 visitors per day but during peak periods throughout the year that number can rise dramatically.
The site can be seen at http://www.fldoe.org/. It is the latest of several high-profile projects recently designed and developed by Solodev on the Solodev CMS platform, including websites for the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, LYNX, Contrax Furnishings and Osceola County. Solodev also launched two mobile apps recently for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and is completing a third.
