We’re pleased to announce the nominees for the 2012 eduStyle Awards, sponsored by Demand Creativity. This year marks the 5th anniversary of the eduStyle Awards. We have moved many of the categories up to 5 nominees from 3. So this year there are 73 sites nominated in 20 categories. The nominees represent 53 schools. To recognize the changing landscape of web design we have added a category, sponsored by HigherEdExperts.com, for Responsive Design.
We’re working on some very exciting changes to eduStyle over the next few months. As part of the roll out of this year’s awards we have completely rewritten our screenshot system. While most of you won’t notice a change, it was huge and lays the foundation for some significant changes that we’re working on. The first, that will roll out in the next few weeks, is the end of the approval system (yipee!!). Instead of approving new sites, we’re moving to a system that auto approves so that your site will show up in the gallery immediately after you submit it. Stay tuned for more big changes.
