DESIGN, FUNCTION, COMFORT - ALL IN ONE WEBSITE EXTENSION
The website of Leibniz Universität Hannover: A big project with 400 TYPO3-performances!
The performances themselves offer numerous individualized content elements, an extensive study information system, and the connection to all previously used TYPO3 Extensions. This ensures a high level of comfort for the editors and users alike.
We did that with a website extension, which greatly facilitates the migration from old to new appearances.
As always, with Scrum we have taken an agile approach to implementation: show the customer early results, work closely together in all phases and record + implement feedback throughout the project.
Usability is the focus
Consistent user-centric design ensured that the huge amount of content, especially of the main website, was well received by the users. This has been tested again in a usability study after live connection:
"All in all, the website was well received by the participants, it was perceived as modern, clear and tidy, especially content that was presented succinctly and was well received by the participants."
With more than 120 degree courses, Leibniz Universität Hannover offers a wide range of study opportunities. The degree programs range from Bachelor through Teacher Training and Masters up to higher education and graduate programs and are aimed at students and prospective students from Germany, the EU and non-EU countries.
With the study information system, we have developed a TYPO3 extension that meets all these target groups: Numerous filter options allow a targeted search for suitable study programs. Whether study content, information on application deadlines and study regulations, continuing studies or contact persons, everything is clearly and easily accessible in the new system. The possibility of editorial maintenance at a central location also increases the comfort for the responsible staff of the university.
