SUMMARY

Scholastic engaged zen.digital to simplify the company’s existing website, including the ability to launch new features with analytic feedback. We produced a prototype that reflected all of the desired changes in the website design which was used as a reference for their upcoming changes.

CHALLENGE

Scholastic’s original site, based on Drupal, was launched in 2011. zen.digital created a framework that leveraged the existing Drupal backend while unifying the technology that served parents, teachers, and students. Besides the basic design determinations, aggregating data was a challenge across the large organization structure.

SOLUTION

zen.digital developed a prototype that encompassed the concept of the web redesign with the desired functionality, and helped to define APIs to unify data access.

By creating a framework that leveraged the existing Drupal backend, we were able to unify the technology that served parents, teachers, and students. Using Responsive Design & Agile Practices allowed for faster concept-to-implementation than was previously available.
