    It's meh. Nothing to write home about. The old site was in need of a new look, that's about it though.

    Re: ISU's new website

    I think I like it, but it looks like a Wordpress skin somewhat.

    Re: ISU's new website

    Its the average looking college website nowadays. It needed an update from 2001 so bad though. So I like it!

    I actually like it. It is different but simple. Seems easy enough to navigate around and what not. The last one wasn't bad. I also like how they added the part at that bottom for twitter updates.

    Re: ISU's new website

    In terms of usability the old design was about as good as it gets for an ".edu" site. It looks like the usability is still there, and it's an improvement in terms of looks, so I like it.

    Been using it for a couple months and like it infinitely more than the old page.

    They are. I don't know anything about its replacement, but there's a notice about the upcoming switch on the login page. I think it's supposed to happen next year.

    The replacement isn't much better. It's called BlackBoard. A couple of my classes used it last semester. Basically WebCT with a different layout.

    I figured as much. In my experience, the problems associated with WebCT (from the students' point of view) isn't due so much to its technological shortcomings but rather poor (or improper) utilization by the instructors.

    I used BlackBoard when earning my MBA at St Ambrose. No complaints (perhaps I just can't remember them off the top of my head).
