Learn how to edit photos for the top right media space on www.miis.edu in under five minutes:

Customized Video Player

We have built a template to create a customized video player for Monterey Institute YouTube videos, like the ones featured on the www.miis.edu homepage. You can request a template for Powerpoint or Keynote, depending on whether you’re a PC or Mac.

Call to Action Buttons

We’re hoping to increase our conversion rate on www.miis.edu (i.e. how many people complete “Request Info” webfoms or Apply online). We can help this process online by creating call to action buttons or sidebars, to be featured on key areas in Admissions and Academics. Stay tuned for some new designs next week.
