City of Grass Valley
The City of Grass Valley is a special place to live. For years, the Gold Rush history, charming downtown, and access to the outdoors have drawn residents and visitors alike. However, in recent years, an influx of new tech companies, commercial projects, and exciting developments have created the perfect environment for young professionals and their families to join the community and lay down roots.
Sierra College Academics and Guided Pathways
How Sierra College transformed the student experience
Offering a wide range of programs, degrees, certificates, and courses, Sierra College supports a diverse community of over 18,000 students, empowering them to chart their future path and achieve their dreams.
Inspired by the new guided pathways initiative for community colleges, Sierra College came to Digital Deployment seeking a website that would enable the student community to proactively explore programs by interest, degree offering, and potential salary, all before their first visit with a counselor.
Webinar: Getting Acquainted with Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a powerful tool, but the sheer volume of options it provides can be a little intimidating for new users. This webinar provides a clear overview of how Google Analytics can help you learn more about how visitors use your site.
