Getting Started

It was a privilege to be able to work with the team at WGU when redesigning and creating their new website. A lot of long hours went into this project but in the end, we are proud of how it turned out.

The project started because Google made a change to their algorithm and now penalize websites that are not mobile-friendly. This was a great opportunity to revamp the site and give it a much-needed makeover. We also migrated the site from Drupal 6 over to the newer Drupal 7 platform.

Agile Development advised WGU on important decisions about the direction of the site. Most of the images on the site were created by Agile Development with guidance from WGU’s marketing department.

We also helped implement Jira within the marketing department. Using the Agile Development Method WGU is able to clearly see and understand their needs and create a realistic plan to complete each task.
