According to Nancy Prater, university web coordinator at Ball State, "The website is often the first place prospective students will go to when deciding on what school to apply.
According to Prater, "There were so many factors that pointed to Sitecore as a good solution for us, that it may be impossible to pick just one thing."
Says Prater, "The university programmers are knowledgeable with the Microsoft .NET environment. Sitecore has built their CMS from the ground up with .NET. This offers tremendous potential for our programmers building web applications, which they can integrate more easily to the Ball State Website." Sitecore offers better support for Macs. Says Prater, "About 25 percent of our students, faculty, and staff use Macs.
"With 600 people across the campus making edits, the CMS had to be easy to use," says Prater. With such a large group of editors, Ball State is assured that their website content stays current.
According to Prater, the new marketing and communications efforts, including the new website, have accounted for student applications increasing 38.5% this year.
