Web Development and Digital Capacity Building

We provide professional website design, hosting, and maintenence.

Hosting

We will host your website and take care of all technical aspects.

General Principles

We will create template-based pages that are easy for your agency’s staff to update, add pages, and modify content.   We will design the website so that it will build digital capacity of both the users and those who maintain it.  We can help you create a document or digital library.  We can include customized form creation ability that results in documents and a database of the information submitted to create the forms.  For schools, we can customize interactive forms for creating lesson plans that incorporate digital resources for personalized learning. These lesson plans then be organized into a searchable table of resources on the website.  Non-technical staff will easily be able to update the website.

The website can have the following features:

  • ADA‐Compliant – Site is compliant with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Archive Center/Document Library – documents can easily be posted and accessed on the site, and can be stored in a searchable format.
  • Calendars
  • Quick Links – Shortcut navigation options throughout the site for easy access to the most important information.
  • Site Statistics –Google Analytics tracking code
  • SSL Certificate – Website has a valid SSL certificate.
  • Maximizes Search Engine Optimization (SEO).  

Planning for Growth

We design your website with growth in mind, so that it stays organized and easy to find things.  We also design so that you don’t end up with hundreds of dead links.  We know that external links change. Also, new and better digital resources are often created or discovered and you will want to add them. And, as your content creators learn to use the website, they will create additional resources and lesson plans that need to be added to the digital lesson-plan library.

Goals

The goals of the website are to support digital-capacity building, create an organized library of lesson plans, and provide links to critical resources.

Website Design

The website is designed to fit the needs of different stakeholders: the teacher, the content creators, and technology administrators.  The teachers will be able to easily find resources and lesson plans.  Your content creators will be able to use the website to create lesson plans that incorporate digital resources.  And, your technology administrators will be able to easily manage the growth of the website.  (You also have the option of having us manage the website for you.)
