Best Schools in America: Website rankings
The team at Best Education Sites analyzed the state of the academic Web space in 2011, rating each school's educational website in terms of design, content and usability. Did you know that yellow is used more than five times more often than red on education sites? BestEdSites also looked at schools' use of social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, offering facts like "Princeton and Yale were two of the first universities to register for Twitter, both joining on May 1, 2007."
