Re-organizing the massive course catalog at Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz makes tremendous investments in the ongoing training and support of their employees. However, their current site for distributing training content outgrew their efforts. Due to sheer volume and diversity, it was no longer able to support all of the valuable content that was being produced each year.

I aimed to re-design the course catalog with the following goals:

  • Re-organize the information to support extensibility
  • Design a system so that the site could be integrated within M-B’s existing CMS

I pitched in on creating the templates in HTML/CSS and worked very closely with developers to ensure that we were tracking every step of the way.

One of the challenges was to find consistency in the shape of the content so areas of the site could be templatized.
