Cuesta: The Premier Web Developer for the Education Industry
Cuesta is different from most Web development companies. We come to the Web and Internet "platforms" with a background steeped in education, computer science and user-interface design. As educational software developers, we are known throughout the industry as experts in Websites for education publishers and vendors. We are proud of our reputation as the education industry's premier Web developer.
We regularly attend education conferences and networking events such as EdNet and AEP/AAP. We are early adopters of the LRMI (Learning Resource Metadata Initiative) and are prepared to implement technologies for our clients that will allow them to take advantage of tagging systems when the time is right. Because of our advanced database technologies, our clients will be able to implement these features with relative ease, unlike many publishers who will have to start from scratch.
Cuesta can also provide freelance services such as proofreading, catalog copy, content editing and social media marketing. We offer development of lessons/activities for textbook and supplemental book publishers. Experienced with both print and Web-based materials, our staff is composed of seasoned professionals who are well connected in the education publishing and ed-tech communities. Some of us even venture into the classroom as substitute teachers from time to timein order to refresh our memories about what a teacher's day is really like, and to take a closer look at school purchasing requirements.
Cuesta's Web Marketing Services: What We Can Do For You
Client History: CDW's GetEdFunding - GetEdFunding.com CDW-G, together with their marketing consultant, came to Cuesta with an idea about how they could make the lives of educators who were seeking funding opportunities easier. They were looking to build a fully comprehensive, easy-to-use Website that would allow educators and education non-profits to find grants by a number of very specific categories, including the ability to search national or State-specific grants by subject, grade level, focus and more.
The backend of the system needed to be powerful and easy-to-use for their marketing professionals who were new to Website management at the time. They required a site that would display certain opportunities to any visitor, but only allow registered users to access the complete database of hundreds or thousands of grants. The site was so successful in it's first year that it was awarded a Beacon Award by the AEP. A prestigious award such as this, received after only 8 months of operation, reflects history in the making.
