Wilson Center Digital Archive Nets Two Training Industry Awards

The Wilson Center Digital Archive and d’Vinci have been honored with two industry awards in the educational websites category – a silver Davey Award and a silver W3 award.

"The Wilson Center Digital Archive is a critical resource for history educators and scholars. In 2022, d’Vinci Interactive rebuilt the website from the ground up, not only creating a fresh interface, but just as importantly rethinking the organization and functionality of the website to improve the user experience. The impact and reach of the Digital Archive is greater than it has ever been in over a decade of operation,” said Charles Kraus, Deputy Director of the Wilson Center’s History and Public Policy Program.

To ensure project success, d’Vinci implemented its UI/UX process for public-facing educational websites to research and define learner goals, ensure stakeholder feedback was captured, and guide the entire project team through a successful redesign.

d’Vinci designed and built a new Data Visualization Discovery Tool feature which allows learners to search and visually explore connections between historical events, figures, places, and topics.

d'Vinci created the new Digital Archive using Drupal 10 architecture, enabling Wilson Center staff to securely access content management features and add and edit resources to the site over time. d'Vinci’s development methodology ensured that the final website was mobile responsive and Section 508 compliant.

Supported by the History and Public Policy Program, the newly-launched Digital Archive website provides unique insights into global history, international relations, and diplomacy. Many of the documents in its collection are unavailable anywhere else, making the Digital Archive an invaluable tool for students, scholars, journalists, and policymakers.
