New Cégep à distance website online

Montréal, September 30, 2013 – The English version of the new Cégep à distance website is now online at cegepadistance.ca/en.

The new site is set up to meet the needs of Cégep à distance’s different client groups: students, the education network, businesses and the general public. These different groups will easily find the information they need, thanks in part to detailed menus. Cégep à distance has also made a special effort to make the site compliant with Web accessibility standards for the disabled (SGQRI 008-01).

“Over the last few years, our service offer has progressed based on the needs of our clients. At the same time, internet technology and Web standards have evolved rapidly. Our website allows us to meet the needs of our audiences with the most appropriate technological solutions. It allows us to stay on the leading edge in college-level distance education,” explained Cégep à distance director Viet Pham.

The improvements include a search engine always present in the site header that can search for courses by title or number and also search the site content. The autosuggest function differentiates between courses and information pages. The course description pages have also been reorganized and rounded out with more information.

In terms of site organization, registered students and tutors will find a handy “Access” button in the header at all times, for access to the online learning environment. People familiar with Cégep à distance will also be pleased to find the reference documents in the footer.
