Initial situation & goal

Simply good teaching

"Einfach gute Lehre", Kiel University's teaching blog, is a central portal for news and developments relating to teaching at Kiel University. Our task was to redesign the portal, which was first published in 2014, modernize the design and technically restructure the system based on the latest web technologies.

Our solution

Customized blog system based on Nuxt and Strapi

Strapi Headless CMS 

We used the headless CMS Strapi to manage the website content. Strapi uses a headless approach to provide content for different channels. Strapi's user interface is simple yet powerful, making it easy to create, edit and publish content without the need for technical expertise. The open source platform, good integration with existing technologies and frameworks, as well as the comprehensive security architecture were further criteria for our selection. 

Nuxt.js / Vue.js frontend 

Nuxt.js is a framework for the development of Vue.js-based frontends. Nuxt.js is based on the conventional folder structure of Vue.js and offers an easy way to organize our files in a clear and intuitive folder structure. This makes the code easier to read and enables efficient development. Nuxt.js enables efficient development and maintenance as it offers many useful features and tools to make our work easier. Server-side rendering (SSR): Nuxt.js also provides the option of server-side rendering, which allows us to achieve better search engine optimization (SEO). In addition, the initial rendering of the page is performed from the server, which results in faster loading times and thus ensures a better user experience.
