Features You Need for Education on the Web
We build education websites that are secure, dependable, fast, and easy to use. Allow us to help you create a community for your students, faculty, and parents with a specially designed WordPress website that fosters team spirit and provides an educational portal for your website visitors.
Creating and sharing class schedules can be a very helpful feature for your students. Multiple calendars can be maintained, from class schedules to robust event calendars for your school district or campus.
Image and media galleries are a great way to show off your school’s spirit. Your WordPress-powered education website can feature advanced galleries supporting all types of media including photos and videos.
Integration of a robust document management system is built into your education website, allowing your teachers, faculty, staff, and students to organize and host thousands of images, videos, PDFs, Microsoft Word documents and Excel spreadsheets, and more.
Integrating WordPress user accounts with your SSO is an important requirement for any education website. From Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), Desigo.io can integrate SSO with WordPress using many different user authentication systems. You can also use the student and/or faculty email address as an authentication point, creating a gateway that only students and faculty of your school can access.
A calendar of events is a great feature for administrators, students, and parents to stay informed of upcoming activities at your school. WordPress has many options available for powerful and flexible calendar and scheduling systems. Calendars can also be configured to aggregate multiple event categories into a single calendar for an easy-to-use, all-in-one school event calendar to feature on your education website.
Your school community wants ongoing access to news and information. Give it to them. With WordPress, you can easily have and manage blogs, newsletters, and even integrate social media updates to create a robust churn of communications. Set up multiple authors and editors, as needed. You’re in control. Students, parents, and faculty will always be in the know.
An interactive school or campus map is a great way to help your students and visitors navigate your facilities. Using powerful services like Google Maps, we can create a fun and informative experience for your visitor.
Multiple sites for networks
Does your school have multiple campuses or districts? No problem! Our solution builds a network for each location and integrates consistent features and branding across all of them—with one single installation.
Easy to use
With WordPress, all of your content publishing and editing is done within an easy-to-use Dashboard. WordPress provides the ability for news and resources pages, searchable faculty, student, and class directories, admissions criteria and applications, class and program catalogs and schedules, and even a learning management system with features, such as curriculum management, online homework, quizzes, grading, and more. More than a platform for blogging, WordPress is the website platform of choice for schools, K-12, universities, teachers, faculty, admissions, and more.
