I'm interested in learning which institutions have the most useful websites.  Recognizing there are many differences from campus to campus, I would welcome your feedback in three categories:  small (less than 2,500 students), medium (2,500 to 15,000 students), and large (more than 15,000 students).

+Jim Newberry I use university website accessibility as a project once a year. Students create a list of ten questions a prospective student might ask to ask five U. websites, graph click depth, and explain who won and why. From year to year, there is little consistency except among the worst - the Ivy Leagues which are consistently panned by the kids. Sites that try to be a "gateway" are always bad. Sites that have only one menuing philosophy are bad. There should always be multiple ways of seeing a way to information. A very small school, Bethune Cookman has often ranked well. Generally though, results are skewed toward research institutions.

Matt, I agree on all fronts.  UVa's governance battle was big, and there was a lot of energy surrounding MOOCs.  However, the issues at Penn State involved so many aspects of campus life that it has to be the top event for me.
