Vision International School, a new educational facility located in Al Wakra, a suburb of Doha, Qatar, unveiled an improved approach to mobile communications recently by launching a responsive website from Rediker Software. The service provides the school with an attractive and affordable website that delivers an optimal viewing experience on any device. The site automatically adjusts to any size screen for easy reading and navigation on smartphones, tablets and computers without having to maintain a separate mobile site.
The decision to choose Rediker Software to host their website began when Vision International was looking to enhance its overall image and attract future student applicants. “Our international student body represents countries around the globe. We want to reach out to applicants who are looking for an American international curriculum tailored to their culturally diverse needs,” Maha Abdel Moneim, Vision International Admissions Officer said. “With RediSite, we can create forms to collect the Admissions data we need, including inquiries and potential applicants. We also have created the (online forms) site to match the colors and design of our school website, making it much more professional looking,” she said.
RediSite websites are built with the user-friendly content management system (CMS) concrete5. Rather than relying on a webmaster to make changes to a site, or navigate a cumbersome user interface, RediSite websites allow any user with permission to easily add, edit or reposition content. Users maintain a high level of control over any changes needed while still ensuring the site’s responsive integrity.
“We are passionate about what an international education means for preparing future leaders for these challenging times,” Abdel Moneim added. “At VIS, we strive to create a community of caring, inquisitive, critical thinkers, who in turn will take what they learn and improve the world around them. Our RediSite website makes the Admission process so simple.”
Vision International School is also dedicated to providing information and forms in multiple languages for their diverse families. With Google Translate added to RediSite, they are able to translate any text, speech, images, or real-time video from one language into another. New, easy-to-navigate school and district calendars, linked to Rediker’s PlusPortals, will also be available to the school community in Fall 2016.
“The RediSite solution has enabled the Vision International School (VIS) to stand out among other international schools with a well-designed and distinctive web presence,” said Rediker Software President Andrew Anderlonis. “With its powerful and user-friendly content management system, VIS can more easily recruit and communicate with its school community through its integration with Rediker products and built in language translation service,” he said.
RediSite is available to any school or district using any student information system. To learn more, visit www.rediker.com/solutions/responsive-school-websites.
