Academic Advising

Client Objective
Dr. Kimberly Smith contacted ACI to discuss the redesign of her three department websites. The initial goal was to focus on revising the Academic Advising site so her staff could easily update content and manage student applications more efficiently. The new website needed to utilize Virginia Tech branding and design guidelines, but did not have to be configured within Ensemble. The pre-course selection form also needed some enhancements to include addition of paging, improved preview, data export, confirmation page addition and ability to save and complete partial submissions.

ACI Vision
ACI created a custom built Joomla template utilizing Virginia Tech branding elements. University Studies Advising wanted image boxes to highlight key content areas on the new home page. ACI utilized Mach Forms for the pre-course selection form to meet all the form enhancement requirements. In addition, the forms are printer-friendly and feature an admin back-end to manage submissions and form configuration.
