MAKEOVER WEB EDITION: JUDolphins.com gets a facelift
With video upgrades and improved technology, JU Athletics re-launched JUDolphins.com on Monday. The new design provides fans with easy access to everything JU Athletics including enhanced video features and up-to-the minute access to the Dolphins' social media updates.
“When we started the redesign, we wanted to make it as easy as possible for visitors to find the information they were looking for while also making it pleasing to the eye,” said Joel Lamp, Associate A.D. for Media Relations and JUDolphins.com editor. “With the new design, we’re able to easily integrate our video coverage to allow fans even more access to our programs.
“Thanks to the great people at Streamline Technologies and the JU media relations staff, JUDolphins.com continues its tradition as one of the top collegiate websites in the country.”
One of the new features to hit JUDolphins.com will be the introduction of a sport-by-sport blog, providing behind the scenes insight for all sports including weekly blogs from student-athletes. The blogs are complemented by an increased social media presence, allowing fans to see what is going behind the scenes with their favorite JU teams, coaches and student-athletes.
JUDolphins.com will also provide more video content in the upcoming season with the inclusion of a video player on the main page. Here, fans will be able to see a variety of videos pertaining to different sports and the coaches and student-athlete's lives both on and off the field. In addition, JU games can be seen in greater quality and production with recent software upgrades and set ups. JU plans to broadcast over 70 live events this upcoming year.
But the biggest change to the new website will be the introduction of the “Jacksonville Experience.”
The “Jacksonville Experience” is a series of microsites dedicated to provide fans and potential student-athletes with an in depth look at all of JU’s 20 athletic teams as well as the University. The sites can be accessed by clicking on the “Experience” links located above the schedule/results window on each team’s front page next week.
