My Puget Sound Community Portal System Project Overview.

Description: The mypugetsound.net portal is a feature rich community portal designed to streamline communications between over 300 partners and thousands of individuals and organizations throughout the Puget Sound region in Washington State. This unique communication system offers numerous collections of content for distinct audiences within this niche community of organizations, counties, neighborhoods and environmental enthusiasts.  The tools within the system were modeled after many of the popular social media sites such as Facebook, Linkedin or youtube and integrate with many of these external sites as well for a best of bread solution.  Users are segmented by profiles and can freely exchange information with others in the community. Content repositories, activity forums and groups are managed and moderated yet the system is designed to encourage and inspire participation.

Since May of 2010 CNP Integrations has worked with the Puget Sound Partnership and the State of Washington to provided support in the following areas: consulting, creative design, technical expertise, custom programming and training, content development and customer service support for the www.mypugetsound.net community portal system.

Extending the Joomla! CMS Platform

The mypugetsound.net  community portal was built using the Joomla! CMS open source platform. In addition to the core Joomla framework this portal leverages many 3rd party extensions. Some of which were purchased and others were available at no cost. The CNP Integrations team built custom extensions and modified many installed components to accommodate unique features for this community portal.

Some of the custom developed extensions where developed as bundled code while others are code changed reflected in articulate change logs. Change logs were broken down into separate documents and were managed in a version control system throughout the duration of the project.

CNP Integrations’ coding approach was always focused on keeping long term maintenance in mind and articulate information was provided for efficiently executing future upgrades and maintenance.

Training Support and Content development

In addition to custom coding and technical expertise for the Joomla platform CNP Integrations provided extensive training and mentoring to the Puget Sound staff. We conducted regular weekly meetings, online training sessions and email updates as to the status of tasking directed by the assigned project managers and team leadership.

The following training resources were also built into the system:

  • We populated an integrated wiki with training content specific to Joomla.
  • We installed and configured an LMS and created numerous training tutorial videos
  • Intro videos were produced to guide new users through their experience on the system

Project Management and Accountability

The CNP Integrations team maintained a transparent cordial relationship with the Puget Staff while providing sound and cost saving advice. In addition documentation regarding project status, account information, upgrades and line item tasking was accurately maintained and always accessible. The CNP Team was responsive to support requests and provided the best possible customer service often under short timelines and pressing deadlines.

Description

The California Association of Nonprofits came to us with a unique requirement for two independent portal systems. www.mycaninsurance.org for a client portal allowing access to catalogs of insurance and policy related documentation. They also went through a major reorganization and needed a communication and community portal for reaching out to new membership and managing content for their rewards programs and information repositories only accessible to their membership. This project uses a community profile and membership subscription components to track user interaction with the site and membership renewals.

There are many custom template enhancements and custom coded components built by the CNP Integrations Programming Team.  Note: See the Yahoo styled RokStories Module in the index as one example.

Description

The Bay Area Video Coalition, or BAVC (pronounced “bay-vac”), is a nonprofit media arts center that was founded in 1976 by a coalition of media makers and activists who wanted to find alternative, civic-minded applications for a new technology - PortaPak video. Our continuing mission is to inspire social change by enabling the sharing of diverse stories through art, education and technology. To support BAVC's mission and fresh identity campaign, CNP Integrations built a robust community portal system with numerous custom modules and component integrations. Two unique templates were developed to give both student and professionals their own identity and social collaboration space. In addition to the many social technologies and community building tools, bavc.org features a robust class registration management system for their core educational opportunities. Also included were several repositories for video and audio assets from the many community video producers and their own "Bump Records" record label. One key challenge met by the CNP team was the ability to deliver this complex system within an extremely condensed timeline.
