The web site is a great example of how organizations and institutions should get their message out in the online age. The web site features a creative video that is a parody on the Match.com commercials, an online dating site. The video is a great example of how to use humor to educate the viewer on your particular issue; in this instance, on what the College Cost Reduction Act does for college students.
The web site also allows visitors to see how much money they will personally save as a result of the law, as well as how much money students in their state may save.
