This overview is for the design and development of the Tufts-Skidmore Study Abroad Program in Spain, a study abroad program sponsored by Tufts University and Skidmore College that is located in Madrid. The Madrid campus is the main center, however there are two "campuses", one in the heart of Madrid, and another in the nearby city of Alcalá de Henares. Both campuses should be referenced on the site.
The goal of the website is to organize and distribute information about the program for prospective students and parents, and for administrators, to serve as a knowledge base for current enrolled students, and to be a live blog where students can publish news, reviews, articles, and photos and videos.
The site will be mainly composed of static informational pages with an events and news section that will be updated daily/weekly (and we are considering WordPress to run the CMS). There will also be a blog section (Noticias de España / News from Spain) where students can publish articles, reviews, and photos and videos. There will also be a FAQ section where students can search a FAQ database and view FAQs based on different topics that can be administered by the program staff. We will provide the Tuft-Skidmore in Spain logo and we expect the site template to match well with the logo’s color schemes.
The site will be primarily in English but the live blog will be in Spanish.
