Web Standards

There are certain ways we do things on the Portland Community College website so that the overall website stays compliant with W3C standards and PCC standards. If your site is in the PCC template, you are starting off with a page that is compliant with W3C Standards, which means your website will:

  • load faster for the user
  • render better on mobile devices
  • be more accessible to all users

Following the PCC standards will optimize your user's experience throughout the entire www.pcc.edu website. These standards have developed out of the user experience information the PCC Web Team gathers through user feedback, usability studies and very detailed user analytic data gathered behind the scenes.
