Easy, often overlooked, tips for a great education site.

As a new member of the Acquia team, I’m in awe of the breadth and the passion of our community. Acquia is a dynamic mix of our customers, our employees, our technology partners and our consulting partners.

NavArts is one of our Enterprise partners. Among their many talents, they are edu savvy. Ted Slesinski recently published a blog post that recommends 9 Drupal modules that are great for higher education, but are often overlooked.

Ted points out that 'Using different modules within the Drupal platform is a way to customize the technology to the specific needs of your school based on its individual characteristics. Taking advantage of 'contrib' modules is also an efficient way to avoid reinventing functionality with a custom solution when it already exists."

This is the kind of experience and expertise that our partners bring to the table, often providing great suggestions that are key to building a great digital experience.

I'll be sharing great tips like this from our partners, and will help you understand the extraordinary value that they provide through their individual skills and experience.

Acquia has more than 600 partners, so expect to hear from me often. But I promise I'll make each blog post worth your while.

So if you’re an educational institution, I invite you to visit the NavArts blog and get Ted's tips on customizing your site. And check out this blog for more great advice and suggestions.
