Project Summary

Client wanted the website to function as a repository for Task Force (TF) public materials, and as an outreach vehicle to engage northerners in questions regarding the current and future state of post-secondary education and training. The primary audience will be northern youth and the primary goal of the website is to optimize the outreach of the Task Force.

Client needs

  • A form with an interactive map to get entries for the Sessions held by Northern Task Force.
  • Have a multilingual website to cater visitors that speak English, French and Inuktitut.
  • Display information about the Task Force Members.
  • Gather survey information by integrating the surveys from third party services like Survey Monkey.
  • Encourage users to tell their stories with the help of a form where they can share anything they like in the form of document, audio, video or image files.

Approach

Kellett proposed to use Drupal 9 platform,which is current, modern, very robust and can provide a simple and easy back-end system for managing all site content as well as any additional functionality.

Results

A rich, visually appealing, modern and mobile-friendly website with content in multiple languages (English, French and Inuktitut). The simple yet robust content management system allows the client to build pages containing a variety of pre-template content, making it easy to create visually appealing content using a simple interface. Mostly consisting of basic static content, the site also offers online forms for submitting a story, joining a meeting and contacting the organization. In addition, integration with SurveyMonkey allows them to embed surveys seamlessly within pages of their site.

These features will help the task force engage with the northern communities to help meet their mandate of finding ways to improve post-secondary education in Northern Canada.
