Sitecore Re-Architecting
KCTCS needed to re-architect their existing Sitecore environment to provide greater consistency and ease of management across the main KCTCS college site and 16 college websites representing 76 campus locations in the state of Kentucky.

Project Scope

Our Approach

UX & DX Design
High Monkey’s work with KCTCS included a complete re-architecting of the Sitecore CMS environment.  The High Monkey team conducted extensive requirements gathering and stakeholder interviews that lead to the definition and creation of re-usable templates, content renderings, page layouts, page sub-layouts for use across all KCTCS college websites.

Search Strategy
The High Monkey team provided extensive search customization and created controls within the Lucene search engine that included filters for content categories and dates, as well as display templates for custom search results.

Website Design & Build
High Monkey designed a separate mobile interface to provide a more user-centric mobile experience. We also developed a .NET tool to map content fields from KCTCS’ existing database and provided custom .NET programming for a navigation control and a “news and events” control.
