I worked as lead developer on an informational site for the Degree Qualifications Profile, a joint project between the Lumina Foundation and the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA). The primary goal was to present the concept and overview of the project in an easy-to-understand fashion, while still providing a depth of resources and information if the user dug deeper.
We were able to create a simplified front page that presented easy entry points into the site, as well as a variety of introductory materials to make clear what the DQP was. WordPress has allowed the client to maintain and update their own site with minimal style and content bloat.
We created an interactive map using the D3.js library and AJAX to call custom post types from the WordPress database. This allows the client to add or remove institutions from their dashboard to easily keep the interactive map up to date. Link to Map
We created an infographic explaining the importance of the DQP using parallax.js to trigger events on scroll position. The interactivity provides one more level of interest for users that need a more fun introduction to what can be seen as a dry topic. Link to Infographic
