TULSA — The official website of the ORU athletic department, in conjunction with NeuLion, Inc., will launch a brand new look for ORUGoldenEagles.com on July 25.
Beginning July 25, the new site will offer a cutting-edge platform for fans to follow ORU athletics, but will also include updated video players, mobile applications and much more.
“The goal of this redesign was not only to bring our website up to date, but to make it stand out from the crowd,” said Assistant A.D. for Media Relations Blake Freeland. “NeuLion has been a great host for the past five years and we are excited to continue that relationship. I am extremely grateful to Ryan Pederson, Corey Boehm, Brandon Purington and everyone at NeuLion who has helped us put this new design together.”
The enhanced video portal on the website will not only allow for higher quality live productions, but will also make finding archived videos much easier. Through the mobile applications, which will be available for iPhone, iPad and Android operating systems, fans will be able to get news and information right on their mobile device, and will be able to watch live video from anywhere through ELIve.
A larger presence of social media will also be included in the new website, including multiple links to the ORU twitter, facebook and Google+ pages and instant updates from those accounts.
“The redesign of ORUGoldenEagles.com is an integral part of the digital strategy for Oral Roberts Athletics,” noted Ed O’Brien, Vice President of NeuLion. “As a valued partner, it was extremely important that we understood the vision and we are confident that the new site is a positive step toward reaching those goals. Creating the next generation fan experience and online digital business are a high priority for us with ORU and in the college sector.”
The new site will be available the morning of July 25, beginning approximately 8 a.m.
