The new responsive design, developed by Web Services, provides an optimal viewing experience that adapts to the screen size of any device and features a top space for quality photos and an auto-complete search function.
Based on analytics and consultations across campus, the new page will act as a hub to support Carleton’s recruitment efforts and present Carleton in a fresh, compelling way to those interested in learning more about the unique range of programs and activities offered by the university.
Features of the new Carleton Homepage
- Easier navigation. With a full A to Z mobile-friendly listing on the right-hand side so that every major website at Carleton is accessible, including primary links for recruitment purposes.
- Improved search capability. Intuitive search functionality that predicts a word or phrase that website users commonly type in now.
- Better accessibility. The new home page meets requirements for 2021 under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act – WCAG 2.0 Level AA. This feature complements Carleton’s longstanding commitment to accessibility on campus.
