Changing web content management systems
Nutrients for Life Canada (NFL) required an interactive online learning platform for their curriculum, designed to bring the science of agriculture into the classroom. Don had previously modeled this new web content, working with the curriculum committee, using the Mahara eportfolio as a rough workbook.
NFL had problems working with its web hosting company to migrate this new content to the current website. Don proposed migrating the content to a new content management system based on Drupal, seamlessly maintaining the look and feel of the existing website. The project was completed on time and on schedule, at a fraction of the cost quoted by the existing web company.
Activities included hiring the new web production company, overseeing production and client liaison. The key deliverable was the new website, for which Don continues to produce new multimedia content.
