Eduzine Global - Celebrating youth successes across the globe...
Eduzine is a quarterly printed magazine which is distributed across the UK and to chosen locations across the globe. It specialises in celebrating the achievements of young people throughout the UK and around the world via stories, articles and galleries.
Due to the incredible impact of such a positive magazine, the owners wished to launch an article/news based website which would allow them to gain the attention the content deserves in a mass market; this was not feasible in a printed format due to print and distribution costs. Eduzine have resourced and been provided with enough content to fill their quarterly magazine several times over, but due to the requirements of ensuring that content is fresh and relevant the Eduzine Global website was required to allow updates to occur immediately as new articles and stories are sourced.
Our key focus when developing this website for Eduzine Global, was to ensure that simplicity of updates for adminstrators and ease of navigation for site visitors was absolute.
The sitemap has been developed with scalability in mind; initially the site is being populated with content from across the globe, but as the existing site fills, so to will the sections within, breaking content down by geographical area. Within each area we segrated content down by subject field and then within each subject field a range of content can be found including:
- News stories
- Image Galleries
As with all Serenity Digital websites, the design has been purposefully crafted to work well on tablets and mobiles as well as desktops and laptops. Due to the worldwide access, we've purposefully ensured that the site design does not utilise high resolution graphics or photography so it runs fast on slower connections.
Having now taken full control over content population and editing, the editors at Eduzine Global are overwhelmed by the simplicity of our system, which allows them to immediately publish new content to the site in a few moments.
We've also trained the team to ensure that their social posts are automated to launch at the same time as the articles they have automated to be published on the website. This level of flexibility has allowed them to create tasks at regular intervals, allowing our content management system, Serenity Source and Hootsuite (a popular social network content platform) to do all the work in between for them.
"The site is quite simply amazing. The way you have taken my ideas and turned them into an incredible website of the highest quality, is just awesome! The site is of a quality truly befitting the great achievements of brilliant young people across the world. Yet amazingly, despite the high technical merits, it is incredibly easy for me to use, owing to an almost ‘idiot proof’ user enabled CMS platform. Congratulations and thank you for a fabulous job, superbly and efficiently completed."
