NYMC.edu Gets a Makeover
On Thursday, January 28, New York Medical College unveiled a new face to the world wide web-a newly designed website, a collaborative effort of the Office of Public Relations, administration, faculty, students and staff of each of the three schools. The new site reflects the identity and brand of the College and its new navigation allows for a more intuitive exploration by our multiple constituencies including: current and future students, as well as faculty and alumni.
Development of the site was a long and complex task. The website was constructed using a content management system (TerminalFour), which provides a uniform templated system that will ultimately allow trained College staff to make content updates to their sections. The site is hosted remotely on dedicated servers with Rackspace, a leader in cloud-based technology, ensuring optimal performance and security for the site.
The new site features advanced elements-including a customizable interactive campus map, an events calendar that can be sorted by school, audience, and event type and downloaded to an electronic calendar and a faculty expert area for media inquiries. The website is scalable for viewing across mobile devices. There is easy access to email and the TouroOne portal via links on the top right corner of each page and a "quick link" drop down menu that provides one-click access to the three schools, the calendar, policies, student learning content management systems and other frequently-visited destinations.
The launch of the new site is just the beginning of this continuously evolving project and the Office of Public Relations welcomes feedback and inquiries.
