New Milpark Business School website engages students
Milpark Business School has completely rebuilt its website www.milpark.ac.za, providing improved navigation and interactive platforms to meet the educational requirements of a digital age.
The redesigned site reflects Milpark's forward-thinking educational vision, and marks a broader shift towards accessing education via distance learning in an online environment.
The user-friendly design of the site is key to Milpark's commitment to providing excellent student support, meeting its students' learning needs and effectively communicating with its future students, alumni and corporate clients.
The dynamic, interactive features include:
- Streamlined search and logical navigation
- Online enquiry forms for every qualification/course
- Online quotation facilities
- Frequent updates to news and events calendars
- myMilpark - an interactive, individual learning and information resource
The clean, bold design of the site engages visitors at the outset. The contemporary layout reflects the new Milpark corporate identity and a contemporary approach to educational provision.
Logical navigation with dedicated shortcuts and a streamlined search facility ensures user-friendly access to extensive information about Milpark Business School's offerings.
New features include two interactive blogs and improved student, alumni and corporate sections. The Alumni and Corporate sections provide controlled access through a registered login. Corporates will be able to use the facility as an administration portal to view and update information relating to their corporate students. The website also features the new online learning environment - myMilpark - which provides students with a platform to an improved learning experience through increased interaction and access to learning resources.
"Changes in students' digital expectations together with the availability of new web technology led to the realisation that it was time for a comprehensive restructuring of the online window to our services," says Julian van der Westhuizen, CEO of Milpark Business School.
"The new www.milpark.ac.za is easier to use, incorporates the new online student learning environment myMilpark and provides future flexibility for growth. It will greatly improve both existing and prospective students' experience of Milpark as we move ahead in the digital realm. We are excited by the possibilities this platform creates."
