Web Services & Digital Media
Web Services and Digital Media (WSDM) of Marketing and Communications is dedicated to promoting the positive image of NOVA by providing a rich Web environment for our many audiences who need access to NOVA information and services. WSDM is responsible for NOVA’s website, mobile site, mobile apps, social media and digital signage.
As part of Marketing and Communications, WSDM works closely with the marketing, public relations, Call Center and graphics staff to ensure the NOVA Web environment meets the strategic goals of the College.
OUR PROCESS FOR WEB PAGE AND APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
We assist all units of NOVA with delivering their information on the Web to meet the needs of our many different audiences.
The first step to a successful project is planning. During your initial meeting with the WSDM team, we review your project objectives with you, your audience, design and development needs, content, timetable and deliverables.
Designing & Developing
WSDM staff will create design features and develop applications with your input.
We will build your Web pages and/or applications as a draft on the staging server for your review and then make your requested revisions.
Upon your final approval, WSDM will move the draft project from staging to live production and maintain the project on the Web.
