Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) April 17, 2017
A website created by eSchoolView is one of just a handful to be recognized in a statewide competition hosted by the Ohio Chapter of the National School Public Relations Association.
The South Central Ohio Educational Service Center was awarded a Mark of Distinction at OHSPRA’s annual conference for its form and function. Just three schools and one other education association received recognition for their websites.
eSchoolView, based in Columbus, Ohio, launched a redesign for the ESC about a year ago and has worked with the organization for about six years. The tailor-made site, brings a dramatic new appearance and capability to the organization’s web presence.
“We redeveloped the site to deepen the organization’s ability to connect with the districts it serves,” O’Leary said. “It’s gratifying the site won an award for its design, but the recognition also speaks to how to the ESC is using the site to keep the information relevant.”
Intuitive navigation, an emphasis on crisp graphics and the prominent role of a photo gallery are key elements to the new designs. Less emphasis on text also increases interaction between the site and end-user.
The mobile performance of the site also improved dramatically with eSchoolView’s responsive design. The site is optimized to display on a variety of platforms and is easy to navigate.
eSchoolView builds custom websites for K-12 schools — public, private, charter and faith-based — and education organizations with its easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS). The CMS platform works with a number of integrated products and helps clients expand their reach with the ability to embed blogs, surveys, RSS feeds, e-newsletters, podcasts and videos.
Websites created by eSchoolView are often recognized at the state level and have received significant national praise. The NSPRA parent chapter recognized Grayson County Schools in Kentucky and Shaker Heights City Schools (Ohio) about nine months ago for their websites. Likewise, eSchoolView was given an Education Standard of Excellence award for Shaker’s site in September by the Web Marketing Association.
OneView, eSchoolView’s solution for enhancing data integration, was recognized as a 2016 Cool Tool by EdTech Digest. OneView allows school districts to read and push data back into various student information systems (SIS), such as ProgressBook, PowerSchool or Infinite Campus. In turn, the software increases internal efficiency and parent engagement through one login.
eSchoolView was created in 2008. Its revenue growth lands the company on the Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list of fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S. for the third consecutive year.
