Focus on Youth 24/7

Back-End Programming | Database Administration | Front-End Development | Moodle Development

This project was developed back when we were operating as Digital Architechs and was one of our first projects.  To this day, this project still remains a favorite of ours as we were handed an impossible task and accomplished it with extreme precision.  Part of what made this project special is that Moodle wasn’t designed to permit the layout that was required.  We had to build a completely separate system and integrate Moodle’s core into it – for optimal performance.

eLearning Dashboard

As a user went through the eLearning courses, they unlocked the next set of courses.  Each set provided users with points, which were used to level up their avatar.  Each avatar had 4 unique “super hero” phases that could be unlocked.  A great deal of custom programming was required for this.

Avatar Selection

Many programmatic gates were put in place to ensure the user performed all required tasks before starting the eLearning courses.  One of those gates was selecting an Avatar.  Once an avatar was selected, the user was permitted to change their avatar at any time throughout their training.

Discussion Boards

As Focus on Youth was designed for community leaders, it was only natural to provide an area where users could communicate.  Since the theme wasn’t entirely permitted by Moodle, special coding was required to inject the styling appropriately.

Resource Page

The Focus on Youth 24/7 eLearning website converted textbooks into an interactive training course.  There were many resources that still needed to be provided to the users.  The resource page was a combination of downloads and external links.

Glossary

When you are covering a huge amount of training, there are many terms that are specific to the training material.  A special glossary page was created to provide users with easy access to those unique terms.

Administration Dashboard

A website isn’t complete without an Administration Dashboard!  While Moodle comes with one already, this custom dashboard was created to give admins access to new/custom administration tools.

What our clients are saying about us!

Chris stepped into a difficult project and was able to take a complex set of requirements and deliver on them with excellence. Working to customize the open-source Moodle platform, Chris showed great programming ability. Over the many months of the project Chris had to work independently and solve challenging problems. He asked great questions and brought new ideas to the project that improved the final product immensely. He’s a great communicator and is able to think holistically to build smart solutions. I’d work with him again in a heartbeat.

Holistic Website Development

What makes us unique is that we approach website development in a holistic fashion.  Before we start developing, we map out all of the goals that need to be achieved and study any relationships between those goals.  Then we begin mapping out the most efficient way to accomplish the goals.  After we fully understand what needs to be done, we begin bringing the functionality to life.  We go the extra mile and make sure every base is covered.  Contact us now and let us show you what we can do for you!
