The internet has grown by leaps and bounds. More people are looking to cyberspace to provide them with answers to common issues and problems that they face in life or simply to search for information to help them improve the quality of their lives. Education is one of the things that’s in huge demand given its ability to transform lives. If you’re in this sector and are looking to move your business online, you might want to consider one of MotoCMS’s many prepackaged education website templates.
Education website templates are a convenient way of establishing your online presence without having to worry too much about the technical angle of creating websites. Our templates come ready to use, and you don’t have to be a website developer to know how to customize your template of choice to your liking.
Education websites are like other websites with a few exceptions. To begin with, you need to have a clearly defined goal and vision before picking out your template. If you’re offering tuition services to 9-year-olds, you should customize your website in such a way that it appeals to both the children you’re looking to target as well as their parents. On the other hand, if you would like more individuals to enroll into your institution of higher learning, your website should feature a balance of young and hip design elements together with a more serious edge in order to appeal to both freshmen, postgraduate students and PhD prospectors.
Education websites need to provide as much information as they can given the fact that most people looking to add to their education are looking for more details regarding your institution and courses offered. In some cases, some educational institutions such as universities may have different faculties. All these faculties need to be featured in your website in keeping with the theme of convenience. A prospective student should be able to quickly navigate through the different tabs and pages to find the faculty that they’re looking for as well as the information they need. This will mean that you’ll have to concentrate on content more than design in such websites. You can also have a section of the website offering downloadable resources to make it easy for people to get and fill in the forms that they need to complete before enrolling.
With regards to the color scheme that you should use, you need to pay attention to your institution’s look and image. Before setting out to create an online presence, you should have material in the form of brochures, newsletters and posters. Ensure that the colors that you use match with existing material to create cohesiveness both online and offline.
Education websites should communicate the concept of learning concepts and skills. That being said, you should gravitate towards neutral and affirming colors such as green, brown, blue and white. These colors give the illusion of growth, possibilities, openness and potential. People want to feel that they can trust you during the learning process, and color psychology can help you go a long way in achieving this goal.
Lastly, be sure to add media which depicts what people can expect from your learning institution. For example, if you’re running a driving school, you could have a few videos detailing the training process. You could also have photos of your facilities to give prospective students an idea of what they can expect when they finally enroll into one of your classes. You can even go a step further to add interactive elements such as a chat feature to answer some of the questions that students may have and even interactive games which allow students to earn points which they can use in one of the many shops (if applicable) at the school grounds. The idea here is to make students feel like they matter and that their input is appreciated. Having a website which combines different facets of web design can go a long way in fostering trust and attracting more students with the passing of time.
