Drupalcon Boston 2008 - CiviCRM http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/taxonomy/term/157/0 en UrbanMinistry.org http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/urbanministryorg <p>UrbanMinistry.org, which TechMission launched in April 2007, is one of the leading Web 2.0 destinations for the faith-based social services sector with partners including Salvation Army, World Vision, Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, CCDA and many others. The site is an integration of Drupal, CiviCRM, Moodle and ChristianVolunteering.org. </p> <p>The site has over 5,500 items of content including a Wiki for with thousands of pages of nonprofit resources and over a thousand workshops audios and videos on nonprofit topics from partner nonprofit conferences. Site media are presented using a variety of customized node types: videos can easily be embedded from YouTube and other external services, audio can be bulk imported from the filesystem and played on an embedded Flash player, book listings can be imported from Amazon, and both blogs and wiki entries can be easily composed using FCKEditor. Most recently, we added a jobs board using the Jobs Module which uses a custom CCK nodetype to present user-submitted job opportunities.</p> <p>All the content coming from TechMission, its partners, and site users can be classified using multiple Taxonomy vocabularies. Partner content is presented in distinct themes using Taxonomy Theme. Taxonomy Access Control Light restricts access to members-only content.</p> <p>Users can find content quickly by navigating through the Book hierarchy in our Encyclopedia of Urban Ministry wiki or by using the Faceted Search to drill down through the taxonomy structure. Links to both Faceted Search results pages and custom Views are used to present specific types of content, such as CCDA conference audio from 2006 or books on volunteering targeted at churches. Pathauto creates readable URLs for all nodes, taxonomy terms, and RSS feeds on the site. Users may also subscribe to our media through iTunes; we use Views RSS combined with the FeedBurner module to generate podcasts with trackable subscription statistics.<br /> Our UrbanMinistry.org Drupal installation serves content up to other domain names, including ChristianVolunteering.org, BlazingGrace.org, and City Vision College (<a href="http://www.cityvision.edu" title="www.cityvision.edu">www.cityvision.edu</a>). Referer Themes change the site look and feel radically depending on what site users have previously been viewing. </p> <p>The site provides association management system using the combined power of Drupal and CiviCRM. Membership in TechMission’s AC4 association and enrollments at City Vision College are handled by CiviMember. The site also provides Google mapping capability for over 2,000 nonprofit organizations using CiviCRM. New AC4 members, City Vision College students, and ChristianVolunteering.org are also automatically granted accounts on UrbanMinistry.org. </p> <p>The site is also integrated with our online school City Vision College. Students can use a single-signon between the the Moodle course management system at cityvision.edu/courses and UrbanMinistry.org. All major course content is available for free online through UrbanMinistry.org.</p> <p>Drupal’s flexibility and modular structure make it the ideal platform for a rapidly-changing community-based website like ours. From small beginnings, UrbanMinistry.org has quickly grown to become a central hub for TechMission’s programs, as well as a media repository for several prominent. The site has become integral to our mission of using technology to transform vulnerable communities.</p> http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/urbanministryorg#comments Activism CiviCRM integration media news social justice social network Thu, 28 Feb 2008 21:04:48 +0000 rdsmith@drupal.org 1475 at http://boston2008.drupalcon.org Amnesty International http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/amnesty-international <p>Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for internationally recognized human rights for all. The organization has more than 2.2 million members and subscribers in more than 150 countries and regions and coordinates this support to act for justice on a wide range of issues. Amnesty International&#8217;s Project IMPACT involved a complete replacement of the organization&#8217;s website and CRM system, as well as the completion of a global brand strategy and the replacement of a vast document management system of over 50,000 reports.</p> <p>For the IMPACT project, CivicActions worked with Amnesty International to create a Drupal interface that synchs with the newly adopted al Fresco document management system, multi-level publishing and translation workflows, a custom CiviCRM implementation, and a theme that maintains Level 2 accessibility in the four core languages of the site (English, Spanish, French and Arabic).</p> <p>CivicActions completed this work in 6 month-long sprints, and continues to work with Amnesty to improve and enhance the features of the site. The site provides the Amnesty International Secretariat with a new set of tools, an open source CMS, and most importantly, a scalable and community-supported foundation to build upon into the future.</p> http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/amnesty-international#comments CiviCRM Custom CiviCRM Implementations drupal human rights internationalization multilingual Mon, 18 Feb 2008 23:48:34 +0000 zoeyk 1187 at http://boston2008.drupalcon.org
