Penn State Extension needed an online resource that allowed visitors to learn more about PSU’s agriculture education programs and browse classes, webinars, and online courses. The site needed a streamlined new design and the ability to support a full catalog of online resources, articles, professor bios, and guides for a wide range of agricultural topics. Penn State Extension also required the site to integrate with Plone, an open source CMS platform.
IWD developed a new site on Magento and completely overhauled the design to make it easier for users to find the content they’re looking for. A static list of topics was replaced by an intuitive search bar that simply asks visitors what they want to learn about and provides them with a relevant list of resources. The new site also puts upcoming workshops, featured courses, and recent articles front-and-center on the homepage, making it easy for visitors to stay up to date on news and events.
