University Of Great Falls

As the webmaster of (it looks a lot different now) during the summer of 2002, I have had the opportunity to learn a lot about web development and structure, as well as hone my people skills. While there, I accomplished a great deal, though there were some things I wasn’t allowed to do that would have significantly improved the site. This was essentially my first professional job, and I learned a lot from it. I was young, inexperienced, and enthusiastic, and this job was great for me. I learned a lot about web design, but I learned more about politics. Some of the things I worked on while I was there:

  • Added a sitewide search.
  • Added a campus map with detailed descriptions and popup photos of each building.
  • Built a contact page.
  • Created an online course registration process.
  • Created course, department, and faculty web site areas.
  • Conversion of the site from mostly image buttons to CSS+Text links to reduce the size of the page significantly.
  • Created a search-able database with the course schedule.
  • Created screensavers, downloadable logos, and other digital media.
