Intuitive site navigation makes finding a degree easy
July 22, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsClassesandcareers.com unveils a new navigation bar based on top-down, horizontal models made popular by websites such as Amazon.com. This improved navigation system is designed to allow users to easily negotiate the more than 750 academic programs available through Classesandcareers.com and thereby increase search efficiency and satisfaction.
The horizontal navigation system focuses on nine general areas of academic study, which are featured prominently along the top edge and displayed throughout the portal. These general areas of study include business, criminal justice and legal, design, education, health and nursing, IT and engineering, liberal arts, social sciences, and vocational studies. The general areas are written on tabs and can be activated easily on any page in the portal. Once a general area has been selected, a drop-down menu appears, showing more specific areas of study, which in turn lead to common program names.
"The revamped navigation system has been a real collaborative effort," says Nicholas Greer, President of Classesandcareers.com (a division of One on One Marketing, Inc.) . "It's been the product of months of research and hundreds of hours of work. But it's all for the user. The hope is that this new navigation will allow us to help students find exactly the program they want quickly and easily."
The new navigation system is one of several innovations Classesandcareers.com has planned for its portal in the coming months. "With each new innovation," Greer notes, "we make it easier for students to find the schools they want, and we make it easier for schools to find the students they want. Everybody's happy — that's our goal."
