COLLIN COLLEGE LAUNCHES NEW, IMPROVED WEBSITE

March 31, 2009 – Collin College debuted a new look for its website today at www.collin.edu. The facelift includes changes in navigation, design and branding to create a user-friendly web experience for prospective students, parents and college supporters.

Users of the renovated website will find new sections showcasing an alumni gallery, feature stories, animated homepage vignettes, videos, podcasts, a catalog archive, and more.

Last summer, the college introduced CougarWeb, a one-stop portal available 24/7 in which students view and register for classes, pay tuition, check financial aid awards, access their email and  communicate with classmates and professors. The launch of CougarWeb, which addresses the needs of current students, made it possible for the college to redesign its public website for additional audiences. CougarWeb is also used by college faculty and staff for information on benefits, payroll and announcements.

Some web pages will relocate to CougarWeb, particularly links for current students and employees. A handy “Where to Find?” guide is posted on the site and directs website visitors to the new location of popular topics.

For technical questions or problems contact Web Services at webservices@collin.edu. For feedback, contact Public Relations at news@collin.edu.

Collin College serves more than 46,000 credit and continuing education students annually and offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs. The only public college in the county, Collin College is a partner to business, government and industry, providing customized training and work force development.
