The Division of Continuing Education at the University of Central Florida was recognized for excellence in website design by an international association of lifelong learning.

The Learning Resources Network (LERN) selected Continuing Education for incorporating powerful visuals and an overall good web design and for the use of testimonials to inform visitors about its programs.

UCF’s entry was selected from a field of more than 80 entries from four countries, and the nominees were among the best ever submitted, said Julie Coates, vice president of LERN, which offers information and resources to providers of lifelong learning programs.  

The criteria for the award included a leading edge in the field of lifelong learning, originality, innovation, appropriateness and adaptability as a model for other programs, ease to replicate and measurable outcomes.

The website was conceptualized, designed and built by Continuing Education’s team led by Martin Malpica. The team included graphic designer Christina Grace, systems applications analyst and software developer Marcos Tryzmel and data specialist Ricardo Suárez.
