About eduStyle

eduStyle, founded January 24, 2007, is a web design gallery dedicated to higher education websites and powered by higher education web design professionals. Users submit, review, and comment on sites they like (or don't like). The aim is for higher ed web professionals to learn from and be inspired by the work of their peers. There are currently over 6000 sites in the gallery and a community of over 4000 actives users.


Founded in 2008, each year the eduStyle Awards recognize the best in higher ed web design. Awards are given as both people's choice and judged. Learn more about the Awards.


eduStyle publishes books and reports on higher ed web design. The first book, the eduStyle Guide to Usable Higher Ed Homepage Design was published in 2009. In 2013 we added the Research Report on Higher Ed Navigation Trends. The next publication is scheduled for late 2013 and will focus on interface design. Learn more about eduStyle publications.


To strengthen our efforts to raise the level of higher ed web design, eduStyle provides custom site reviews. Learn more about our services.
