The city of Antwerp’s schools started this school year with a fresh new portal. The home page directs visitors immediately to finding a school or training per education type. That’s quick, easy and intuitive browsing.
If ever a portal needed a crystal-clear information architecture that made sure its visitors stayed on track, this was it. The new schools portal for the city of Antwerp is now a perfect gateway to all education types the city has on offer: 150 schools, academies and educational centers, all on www.stedelijkonderwijs.be.
The focus for this portal was on creating a single site that could serve as the starting point for all 6 divisions and their schools to communicate on their services. For each of those 6 divisions visitors can now easily find information on any of the schools and its facilities.
In a later stage every school will have its own website, which will be built on the same platform. This should create consistency in the look and feel of the Antwerp city’s educational offer and reduce maintenance to all sites to a minimum.
