Overview

Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies is a provincially accredited post secondary training institution with campuses in Regina, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert, plus eight Career Centres and a number of learning centres across the province. SIIT strives to be the institute of choice for First Nation learners. 

 

The Challenge

One of the main challenges with SIIT's existing site was prospective students were not able to easily locate program information nor apply online. They needed an updated website to boost prospective student's interest in the institution. 

They also wanted to improve the experience of their current students and partners because they had concerns that current students were not regularly using the site.

The Solution

We worked in collaboration with SIIT to design a modern and mobile friendly website that would improve user experience on the site. This also involved improving the site architecture to make information more readily available. Speaking of information sharing, SIIT wanted an easy way to share campus news and updates with their community. We hooked them up with a SEO optimized blog and news section.

The main features of this site are the ability for prospective students to apply for admission online and the program catalogue that highlights the courses and their descriptions. The job board is also crucial as it inspires and provides options for graduates and future grads.

Although you would never notice it, we also integrated the new site with many of their existing systems, including email, Moodle, and Registration ADS.

What We Did

First, we updated the front end to replace the educational institutions existing online presence, updating the design to current standards. The design includes responsive web design which allows the site to be accessed on all of the latest devices. It features a revolving banner, campus and program features, as well as a news section.

Second, we redeveloped the back end of the site, updating the content management system and associated database. Applications and contact inquiries are now streamlined for saving time and money. 

The Results

Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies aging website was transformed into an interactive online presence. The program catalogue makes it easier than ever for interested individuals to view and discover all of the program offerings available.

The online application forms are sure to increase enrollment and current students are likely to be more engaged since they can access the site on the go.

Further, the new SIIT website brings together multiple campus and centres into one unified online presence. Does that sound unmanageable? Don't worry.

The content management system on their site is customized with multiple levels of permission. Making it really easy for SIIT site administrators to manage and update the specific content related to their permissions.

The SIIT website was awarded a Gold 2015 Hermes Creative Award for Educational Institution.
