5 reasons to get excited about HighEdWeb15

If you have ever experienced HighEdWeb before then you already know why Higher Education web folk are already in a flap! However, if it’s your first time then you may be wondering what the fuss is all about. Surely it’s just a conference…or is it?

We’re old hands at HighEdWeb and we wanted to give you a little insight into what we’re looking forward to and give you five highlights you will definitely want to watch out for:

1. Join us to hear about Loyola Marymount University’s brand new site

We have joined forces with mStoner to give HighEdWeb attendees an exclusive insider look at the redesign of LMU’s brand spanking new site.

Title: “Storytelling + Experiences: Ingredients of a Successful Redesign

Location: 101C, Wisconsin Center

When: Tuesday, October 6 from 9:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.

For Loyola Marymount it was time to rethink and reimagine LMU.edu. They wanted to design a digital experience that would reflect the university’s unique academic quality, location and Jesuit foundation while also showcasing their gorgeous campus.

They also wanted to create a framework that would allow their website to tell the LMU story through images, video and text.

The LMU team worked with mStoner, Inc, and TERMINALFOUR to rebuild the website from scratch and develop a roadmap to extend the brand new interface through the LMU domain.

Join us on Tuesday to hear about some of the challenges we overcame, the strategy and the solutions we put in place to arrive at the university’s new responsive design. Obviously we’re biased but this is one presentation you won’t want to miss.

2. Visit the TERMINALFOUR stand to be in with a chance of winning some impressive prizes

What can we say; HighEdWeb brings out the best in us! We will be giving away a veritable smorgasbord of covetable prizes throughout the duration of HighEdWeb.  To be in with a chance of winning simply drop by the TERMINALFOUR stand and you could be walking away with a FitBit Surge or your very own Apple Watch.
