NOLS Website Update

With an average of 600 catalog requests and 40 percent of all received applications online per week, the time has come to update the NOLS website. The successful launch of the new site occurred on Feb 11. NOLS worked in conjunction with Cincinnati-based Idiotech to complete the redesign.

The new NOLS website is an up to date tool for administrators, employees and students. A new tab navigation style makes it easier for prospective students to find current information on courses. Photo galleries and a new feature — quotes from NOLS students and staff called 'thoughts from the field' — are all new features available on the site. And an expanded version of the NOLS course finder allows prospective students to search for a course by location, skill area, age, duration and starting date.

Other features include a comprehensive online store offering NOLS merchandise, including clothing, gear, and the NOLS library of books, and online access to current NOLS field research. Visitors to the site will also find easier access to articles and images from the school's alumni publication, The Leader.

Idiotech, the company that designed and launched the new site, has recently done work for the eBay University website, which introduced groups to the processes of buying and selling online, the Cincinnati Ballet and the Cincinnati Art Association. To see some of Idiotech's work, visit their website at
