Hebrew Union College
Higher education institutions often have complex requirements and content navigation needs for their sites. The Alley Interactive team created a number of solutions for Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), the largest Jewish seminary in North America, in partnership with Free Range Studios. The team handled content migration and a complete site build, taking the site from mostly static HTML pages and custom PHP to a completely reimagined and rebuilt digital experience on Drupal 7.
The new site includes major changes such as clearer callouts, easier navigation and responsive design, including a mobile responsive grid calendar and a hierarchical menu system.
HUC-JIR needed the ability to create different blocks of content on their site and to have control of that content per page, whether it is a video Q&A clip or a link to the latest edition of the College-Institute’s quarterly publication. Alley Interactive built solutions to help the HUC-JIR staff easily create and select different pieces of content for display, improving editorial control and the end-user experience.
