EdLab Group

Affinity Bridge was able to quickly understand our organizational needs to develop a complex website with multiple user roles and workflows. The end result was intuitive, easy to use and navigate, and included enhanced “dashboard” features that met our needs for a collaborative environment. Affinity Bridge staff were responsive, professional, and worked with us to deliver a dynamic website within the timeframe and budget allocated. Working with Affinity Bridge was a pleasure and we are already working with them on other web properties and projects.

EdLab Group

The EdLab Group is a dynamic organization dedicated to educational innovation, developing and implementing programs and projects that create meaningful and widespread impact. Formerly the Puget Sound Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology, EdLab is a private, non-profit organization with a mission is to leverage the power of technology and diversity to transform teaching and learning.

Challenge

The National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) website is intended to encourage girls aged 9-14 to pursue science education and careers. The EdLab Group had started work on it, however had not been able to complete it due to the complex nature of the site and its infrastructure. 

Solution

We created custom workflows and navigation for the site, as well as adding an online grant application and membership section. EdLab Group users can view content based on user profiles, as well as by state and regional group. We also migrated the data from the unfinished site to the new one.

Results

The EdLab Group was pleased that we understood their organizational needs quickly, and were able to translate that into a site that is easy to navigate and use by all user groups. The NGCP site works more smoothly now with the new workflows and content pages, and non-tech site administrators can use the site more easily. The content uploaded by users is handled more easily by different workflows, which handles them according to the workflow and content state, as well as the user viewing them. Users find collaboration much easier on the site, and the administrators find dealing with the groups to be much easier.
