Introducing the New Alexander College Website!

Written by Alexander College in School News on December 17, 2018

We are excited to introduce the new Alexander College website to bring you a brand new browsing experience!

Our staff, faculty, and students have all played an important role in helping us determine the ways to best serve your needs and provide the necessary information that you look for every day.

We have redesigned and developed every part of our new site from the ground up and we hope you enjoy it!

That said, here are some of the new features on the Alexander College website:

Mobile-Friendly Browsing Experience

In today’s age, websites are moving towards a more mobile friendly experience. We also find that a lot of our students and staff visit the Alexander College website through their devices.

With this in mind, the new website provides an easier experience for you to navigate through and find information with your mobile phones. This extends to logging in to other platforms such as your myAC account more easily!

Usability and Readability

We received many suggestions and feedback on the overall design of the old AC website. A lot of it was about the readability and usability features.

In the new Alexander College website, you will find it easier to navigate through the various pages. Not only that, you will also be able to find important information with ease. We hope you enjoy the new look and design as well, as it is created with a modern, clean aesthetic in mind.

New Look for the WLC and Library Pages

Some of the Alexander College website’s most visited pages are the Writing and Learning Centre, and Library pages.

You will find that both pages have been revamped with a new, cleaner look for your experience! We also reduced the amount of content to create better focus so you’ll be able to book WLC appointments, find resources and browse the sections faster and more efficiently.

Brand New Look for Subject Areas

The Subject Areas page on the Alexander College website provides the necessary information that students need to make decisions about their courses. You will find a new look on these pages with clickable tabs to easily navigate through the course descriptions, faculty and more.

International Student Guide

We have added a new section known as the International Student Guide to the AC website! We created this section particularly with our prospective and current International students in mind. You will find more information on our Alexander Campuses- including a 360 degree perspective of both locations!

Furthermore, we have included information and links on important tips for before you arrive to Canada, as well as how to make the most of your Vancouver experience!

We list everything from Admissions requirements, fees, placement testing, accommodation, Canadian permits and tips for when you arrive to Canada.

Brand New Social Media and Video Pages

Other new additions to the Alexander College website are our Social Media and Video Pages! In this digital age, we understand that our students heavily engage in social media and we want to share that experience with you!

On this page, you will find tips on how to use Social Media effectively for future job applications and to make friends. In addition, we have included all our active AC Social Media links for you to find and interact with us.

New Blog Section

We created the Blog section as a new part of the AC website to further share information in the form of blog posts and to make sure all the most up to date information is available! You can expect new posts every month and we also welcome any students or staff who would like to contribute to the blog.
