Internetrix is proud to announce the recent completion of a major revamp of the TAFE NSW - Illawarra Institute website. The Illawarra Institute is one of only eleven Institutes in New South Wales, and is the largest provider of vocational education and training in Southern NSW.
The revamped website has a bright new aesthetic that complies with the style and brand design guidelines required by the TAFE. The new site was launched to the world on 14th October. In the subsequent 7 weeks the website has attracted over 65 000 visitors and 125 000 page views across a diverse range of areas including the Library, Current Job Opportunities, Course Search and TAFE for Business pages.
Liz Thomas Manager Media and Public Relations at the Illawarra Institute said "We invested critical resources developing the Institutes style guide to be more reflective of the organisation that we now are. Once the style and brand guide were finalised we were able to go to tender for the new website. Since go live the response has been enthusiastic in terms of look and certainly a major improvement in terms of usability and access to the vast amounts of information."
A highlight of the new website is the Find Us page which outlines all of the campuses included in the Illawarra Institute, stretching all the way south to the Bega Campus.
"We want people to make informed choices about their future training needs. Having access to the comprehensive visitation data will allow us to better understand our online market and their information needs," added Liz Thomas.
The website is managed with Freestyle, Internetrix content management system which allows various staff the ability to be responsible for and publish content directly to the website. Currently over 360 pages and growing, Internetrix is grateful for it's involvement in such a successful project.
