People-centric digital solutions for education tailored to your needs

Domain7 has partnered with educational institutions around the world since 1997 to design and build custom technology solutions. 

World-leading transformation for higher ed starts with Domain7​​

The Domain7 team has helped plan, design and launch some of the globe's most noteworthy work in the education space: 

  • Award-winning redesigns for some of the biggest digital projects in higher education.
  • Student portals and custom-designed platforms that deliver on the mission of higher education.
  • Flexible design frameworks, using modular design of a responsive UI library.

  • Standalone experiences and tools for departments and teams (like alumni, adult learning, human resources, student services and more).

For people-first digital transformations in higher education — whether it's a Drupal 8 redesign, a custom student portal, or an envisioning workshop with the President and the school's Deans — a conversation with Domain7 is always the smart place to start.


The global perspective on higher education

From our vantage point in the erudite city of Vancouver, BC, we see the bird’s-eye perspective on the global higher education scene, through the eyes of our many institutional clients and partners.

Domain7's experience in higher education has ranged from Canada to California to the UK, including work with the several of the world's Top 50 Universities (as ranked by Times Higher Education rankings).

Deep experience transforming education

Think beyond redesigning your main .edu digital property. Domain7 helps with new system architecture and builds, standalone departmental apps, leadership-level brand exploration, and even design thinking sessions on the future of education.

We take our clients through a holistic process that results in seamless solutions addressing educators’ needs across departments and faculties. From web development to design, UX to business analysis: Our multi-talented, diverse team brings a wide range of transformational tools to the table.

It's not just about overhauling outdated digital platforms, websites and systems; it's about how you can better accomplish your purpose in the world, with human-centered technology at the core.

CASE STUDY

University of Redlands

A cultural and digital powerhouse

THE OPPORTUNITY
University of Redlands is one of the oldest educational institutions west of the Mississippi. To cement Redlands’ standing as a leader in American education, the university needed to create a cohesive sense of place and identity. It became clear early on that quick-win digital tools or one-off marketing gloss weren’t the answer. What Redlands needed was a process that truly engaged the university’s community while drawing attention to the university’s authentic services and stories.

THE OUTCOME
A comprehensive digital experience that puts culture first. Redlands new digital home includes improved admissions and financial aid services, as well as dozens of template styles for a flexible visual experience that can be adapted to any device.

THE IMPACT
Inviting Redlands’ community into the process turned the university’s new digital home into a cultural hub as well as a digital one. Being involved in the creation process allowed students and staff to feel a sense of ownership and pride. As a result,  campus-wide staff of more than a hundred people are now actively engaged in creating content online—building a rich legacy of storytelling that captures the history and future of Redlands’ community.

The inclusive nature of the entire project is an ongoing process. We continue to reap benefits in many ways. The concept of involving stakeholders and actively inviting potential roadblock makers into the conversation helps us all.

CASE STUDY

London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

A digital home befitting a world leader in health

THE OPPORTUNITY 
The  London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is a world-leading centre for research and postgraduate education in public and global health, yet stakeholders felt that LSHTM’s digital home didn’t reflect the school’s important role in public health in the UK as well as global health. An outdated content management system made it difficult for content creators to tell the school’s rich stories and the hit-and-miss search functionality posed a challenge for LSHTM’s audiences—students, staff, donors and partners—in finding the content they were looking for.

THE OUTCOME
An accessible, on-brand digital experience that reflects the school’s impact and its profile as a world centre of excellence. Domain7 came alongside LSHTM to identify challenges and develop solutions around user needs, site usability and integrated systems. The end result includes a superior authoring experience powered by Drupal 8, improved search functionality that integrates with all of LSHTM’s databases and systems, and increased accessibility for users of assistive, mobile and low-bandwidth devices.
