(TORONTO, Sept. 23, 2019) – Colleges Ontario has officially launched a new website that delivers more news and analysis about the top issues in post-secondary education today.
“In this new age of innovation, more students must acquire the professional expertise that leads to rewarding careers,” said Linda Franklin, the president and CEO of Colleges Ontario. “We’re excited by this opportunity to generate greater awareness of the leading-edge programs at Ontario’s colleges and to promote measures that ensure Ontario will be a world leader in higher education.”
The new website has a responsive design that allows mobile and tablet users to experience the site’s full capacity. Other features of the new website include:
- A newly added blog by Linda Franklin, called “Getting frank with Franklin,” which analyzes key trends and issues in post-secondary education.
- A restructured resources section that is easier to navigate.
- An integrated platform that provides more opportunities to share news and blog posts through social media.
- A redesigned news section that will be frequently updated.
The website was designed and developed by OCAS, a not-for-profit member organization of Ontario’s colleges and provider of centralized technology-supported services across the higher education sector.
“We’re proud to have created a contemporary and accessible website for Colleges Ontario that will engage more people in the discussions about post-secondary education,” said Karen Creditor, the president and CEO of OCAS. “College education is central to Ontario’s long-term success and this new website will allow for deeper insight and visibility into the trends and issues affecting higher education.”
The website is available in both English and French and incorporates Colleges Ontario’s new brand colours. The site includes links to the Premier’s Awards for outstanding college graduates and to the annual Higher Education Summit, one of North America’s premier conferences on post-secondary education.
It also includes access to the College Centre, which provides professional development programs to college boards and senior people in Ontario’s colleges.
