The Virb Student Program

April 15, 2014

We’re inspired by the new education models and institutions popping up. From working with Patterns.co to developing a custom program with Team Treehouse, participating in the new education movement is an exciting and important initiative for (mt) Media Temple to pursue. Which is why we are particularly excited to introduce the new Student Program launched by Virb. Virb is a Media Temple-owned website builder that provides creatives, makers and content creators with an easy-to-use, scalable platform for their craft to live and grow online.

Virb Sites for Every Student, for Free

Focusing on education has been especially been important to the Virb team with almost half of the team having taught at the collegiate level.

Virb has been a part of students’ education for years as the perfect design or art portfolio tool. Now, in a broad expansion of our educational efforts, Virb will be available to every student in the world at no cost for one year.

The Virb Student Program brings a powerful platform to educators and students.

The current online portfolio landscape is filled with options that either cater only to professionals or truncate their themes and feature set for students. We’re changing that. Sign up to Virb with a valid .edu email address and your first year of Virb is on us, complete with all the features, themes, and integrations we offer. Take that time to craft a beautiful online portfolio, schedule those interviews, and go land the job you’ve always wanted (without paying a dime).

We’re not just stopping there—we’re rounding out the program with curated classes from our friends at Skillshare that will help you create unique pieces of work, offer a portfolio review every semester with awesome prizes, and present tips from industry pros that will help you present your work in the best light.

Check out the program details or sign up and start building now.
