Schools & Universities
When it comes to education, there are many things that can be improved. One thing you don't want to overlook is the design of your website. That's why Wix has created a suite of tools for schools and universities, designed specifically to make it easier than ever before to create engaging websites for any educational institution!
Stages of website development
CLARIFICATION OF REQUIREMENTS AND DRAFTING OF SCOPE
We discuss your idea. We find out the specifics of the business, what problem should be solved and what task to complete. If necessary, we conduct an audit of business processes and develop a digitalization strategy. We set measurable goals - the acceptance criteria of the project and definitions of done of the individual tasks. We draw up a basic technical assignment.
DEFINITION OF TECHNOLOGIES AND TOOLS
We break down business goals into technical subtasks. We draw up a step-by-step plan for achieving the goal. We design the application architecture. We determine the priority functions. We make a list of services for integration. We are planning integration methods: do the services have APIs, do you need to write scripts for data exchange. We solve other technical issues.
DETERMINATION OF THE PROJECT TIMELINE
We forecast the timing. The duration of the project depends on the goals set, the scale and complexity of the technical work. We choose a development methodology, selecting a team. We divide the project into stages, determine the sequence and number of development cycles/phases.
AGREEMENT AND SIGNING OF THE AGREEMENT
When everything is agreed, we sign the contract, attach the technical specification to it. Thanks to 7 years of experience in development and streamlined processes, we always adhere to deadlines and quality. We give our clients a legal guarantee that the obligations will be fulfilled.
Once the schematic structure of the pages is ready, we are finalizing the details of the appearance of the web site. Our designers think over the color scheme, create graphic elements and animations, and select photos. As in the previous stages, we work closely with the customer and agree on design options.
We write the code for the user interface - the front-end, and - the server-side - the back-end. Our team includes skilled programmers. Frontenders translate graphic layouts into languages that the browser understands. Back-end developers write code to process data on the server. Each project is supervised by a senior developer.
CONNECTING EXTERNAL SERVICES
External services help expand the functionality of sites without the need to write similar functions from scratch. We integrate payment systems, delivery services, geolocation services and connect all the databases necessary for the project. We also synchronize the web application with your corporate software.
WORKING ON SAFETY
We think over the general security model during the design stage. At this stage, we are already implementing security measures. We check the reliability of the hosting, we carry out its pre-configuration. We are looking for vulnerabilities in the website application. We connect the HTTPS security protocol, check the protection against DDoS and XSS attacks.
We carry out the necessary types of tests. We check functionality, usability, compatibility with different types of devices: mobile, tablets, laptops and PCs, we do testing the site in different browsers. We measure speed and performance. We test databases.
DELIVERY OF THE FINISHED PROJECT
We transfer the web application from the test server to the permanent one. We train you and your staff to work with new dashboards - site content management system, CRM, ERP or others. We measure the results of the implementation of our solution - whether the goals of the project are met.
WEB DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
We create online presence for you or your business. Whether it is online store, corporate website or a landing page - we can create professional and modern design and functionality website or mobile app.
