The Communication, Marketing, and Public Affairs (CoMPA) team at Mary Baldwin College received another well-deserved pat on the back this month as www.mbc.edu was named among the top higher education websites in the country in 2011 by the popular blog, EDU Checkup. The top 11 list represents the highest scoring websites by blogger Nick DeNardis who, since 2008, has reviewed hundreds of colleges’ and universities’ sites. Praised for its useful navigation, clear design, clean coding, and attention to detail, the MBC website shares the No. 5 spot with Macalester College and Sierra Nevada College. One year ago, the CoMPA team brought home an Award of Excellence from the 2011 Council for Advancement and Support of Education conference in New Orleans for the design and implementation of its new Internet home page. Watch DeNardis’ on-the-fly review of the MBC site , an EDU Checkup episode that aired shortly after the mbc.edu redesign launch in 2010.
