From the Nominator
In September 2019, the Notre Dame Alumni Association launched the subsite, ThinkND, a branded, free knowledge center designed to inform and enlighten Notre Dame alumni and friends. This platform collects and organizes exclusive multimedia content from across the ND academy, including ND lectures, articles, podcasts, and courses. At the time of this submission, there are more than 700 pieces of content on the site. In addition, a new micro-course series, Big Questions, was launched. This series is designed to share Notre Dame’s research and efforts in confronting the world’s greatest problems and challenges.
From the Judges
“Think” from Notre Dame lived up to its promise to “inspire your mind and spark conversations.” This site was “food for your mind.” This is not your average blog; the amount of content on this site could be overwhelming but, thanks to a great clean and simple design, you can navigate to exactly where you want to be and read precisely what you are interested in with ease. This site’s content strategy dives you deep into your interest, which allows you to create an experience just for you. One of our favorites is the courses section, where you can take digestible-length courses in topics that interest you. We even found ourselves ready to kick back and take a few courses while judging. More than 57,000 people have visited the website, exploring more than 121,000 pages. They have an email subscriber list that has topped 8,700 with a 47% open rate.
