The Webster University website represents the University within the context of the
Web, be it accessed via traditional desktop or emerging mobile technology. All website pages
are designed to be
- easily accessed,
- intuitive to navigate,
- timely in content; and,
- complimentary to the image and brand of the University.
The first Webster University website debuted in 1997 at www.websteruniv.edu. The site
to www.webster.edu in June 1998. Minor revisions to the site occurred in 2001 and 2002, but it
wasn’t until 2003 that the site got its first major overhaul.
The web design firm Enlighten designed a new look for the website in 2003. The design
the basis for the template built in Sungard’s Luminis Content Management System (LCMS)
SiteStudio. Top tiers of the redesigned site were published in November 2006, with lower tiers
published throughout the following three years. In 2008, the home page was updated with a flash
photo slideshow and a section for University highlights.
Webster University in 2011 partnered with OmniUpdate and mStoner to create the site in its current form. The site employs OUCampus to manage content and a responsive web design to present content across various devices — from desktop to tablet to mobile.
