The site and its processes

American Council on Education needed a site which allows students to determine the best option for returning to college. In partnership with Stamats, a marketing agency specializing in higher education, we developed a sophisticated filtering feature which allows users to search based on subject area, school, or transferrable credits. Stamats provided project guidance and design assets, while Versa Studio developed the site with ExpressionEngine CMS and angular.js.

Add-ons and EE special sauce

In order to keep EE as simple to manage as possible, we used very few third party add-ons thought CSVEE was critical to the project. We authored several of our own, as well as a powerful API connected to angular.js, which allowed us to filter large quantities of complex data without too many round trips to the web server.
