We are proud to announce the release of the new regional websites for online course and training provider Global Knowledge.
We were commissioned by Global Knowledge to provide design, usability, requirements gathering and build services. This included working closely with the supplier of their bespoke course booking system to ensure the new websites would integrate and display their course data correctly, whilst improving the existing booking and checkout process.
The finished website is flexible and scalable. Global Knowledge can create new websites when required. The design works with multilingual content and from the first site we supplied, Global Knowledge have scaled the site to host 15+ unique regional websites as well as using the new design html to implement a refreshed version of their .com website on another technology.
Due to the increasing popularity of smartphones and tablet computers in recent years, more and more people are accessing the web using mobile devices and expecting an experience as polished and usable as the desktop experience. As a result, it is now more important than ever that web designers, developers and user experience experts take into account these users when creating their websites. This can be achieved by creating a single responsive site or distinct desktop and mobile sites.
And when something is developed, it needs to be tested! A recent project at Auros included mobile-specific versions of a client’s main, desktop website.
The Auros test department had the task of testing both versions of the site. Typically, we test on the most popular desktop browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and so on. This includes different versions of a browser e.g. IE9, IE8 and IE7.
