A new Morley College London

We’ve been working with Morley College and Hunterlodge Advertising to launch a brand new morleycollege.ac.uk! We’re excited to show you all this new project that we’ve been working on.

A growing digital estate

Morley College serves a large and diverse student population across London. A recent merger with Kensington and Chelsea College has grown the population further, shifting more emphasis to the college’s 16-18 provision. SMILE conducted a research phase including stakeholder interviews, surveys with internal and external users and competitor research. We consulted throughout on content, design and technical matters.

Morley utilises Unit-e to manage their course database. Our engineering team wrote and executed an extensive and complex integration plan in conjunction with the college’s MIS team. Morley had experienced downtime issues with their old website. Their course listings and application portal were often unavailable. The new integration with Unit e utilised SMILE’s course management system, OnCourse. Doing so ensures that even when Unit-e experienced downtime, the website remained fully online.

The new Morley College website is hosted on SMILE’s Happy Press infrastructure. We continue to offer ongoing support and maintenance. In addition, a creative services retainer is in place. Each month, SMILE analyses site performance, helping the college to meet their strategic targets through continual evolution.
