Penn State World Campus

Drupal Version: 
This website looks great on mobile devices!
Why does this website deserve to win?: 

Penn State World Campus is the key administrative and support hub for Penn State University's distance learners. The site is structured into two independent sites joined by a single database--one site serves current students; the other, prospective students.

Along with a single database, the sites share a centralized admin interface, taxonomy system, and user role definitions. The taxonomy system is carefully structured to:

  • Enforce program structure
  • Surface contextual user content
  • Assign user permissions
  • Define content relationships
  • Identify content for mobile delivery

The site also features dual custom workflows for marketing and non-marketing content, and a jQuery mobile version.

Drupal 6 platform architected and developed by Treehouse Agency. Mobile theme developed by the in-house PSU development team.
