Ohio University's College of Health and Human Services recently unveiled seven redesigned college and school Web sites.
The new look replaces designs implemented in 2004 for the college and its schools of Hearing, Speech and Language Sciences; Human and Consumer Sciences; Nursing; Physical Therapy; Recreation and Sport Sciences; and Public Health Sciences and Professions (formerly Health Sciences).
Several unique features characterize the new design:
- Navigation designed to accommodate users with disabilities
- A virtual tour and maps that guide visitors through all 200,000 square feet of the college's home in Grover Center
- An interactive room-finder application that helps visitors locate classrooms, labs and other facilities on Grover Center's three floors
- Highly integrated architecture that links programs, schools and outreach units within CHHS
Inventure Technologies Inc., a firm owned by Ohio University alumnus Clay Burnett, designed the sites. Comments or suggestions can be e-mailed to college Communication Director Jody Grenert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The College of Health and Human Services marks its 30th anniversary this academic year. Founded in 1979, it is Ohio University's youngest and second-largest college. Along with unveiling its revamped Web presence, the college plans other observances to mark the anniversary, including an alumni event in the spring.
