Modules / Functionalities
The client wanted to create an independent environment wherein education seekers, education providers and support service providers could interact with each other to serve mutual purposes. To meet all these objectives, the company required a Web 2.0 solution in the form of a web portal with content management system.
The client picked Drupal as content management system for the portal. Elegant MicroWeb worked with the client team to design and develop architecture and framework for the portal. The mutually agreed design and architecture were further developed into a complete Education Institute Information Portal.
The project was divided into three phases: Customising theme design with look-n-feel; customising functionalities from Drupal CMS; and developing custom-made functionalities and modules.
This architecture and design required to utilize some of the functionalities already available in Drupal. They were as follows:
- User Registration & Management
- Multi-lingual support
Some of functionalities already available in the Drupal content management system were semi-customised to meet client requirement before integration. They were Theme and Forum.
The new functionalities developed by Elegant MicroWeb included the following:
- Education Institute
- Bulletin board with category
- Advanced search features
