  • Make site design/UI by utilizing standard HTML/CSS rehearses and the WildApricot Widgets
  • Coordinate information from different back-end app and data sets
  • Accumulate and refine particulars and necessities dependent on specialized requirements
  • Incorporate designs being made in Canva to make site look nicer
  • Build a fully-functioning and interactive website.
What tasks will learners need to complete to achieve the project goal?

By the end of the project, students should demonstrate:

  • Understanding of website platform intergrations with WildApricot
  • Development of a website using the most suitable tools and apps

Bonus steps would include:

  • Testing the website with users/members and making improvements based on user input

Final deliverables should include

  • A refreshed website
How will you support learners in completing the project?

With BCHPCA, you will have a lead project manager that will be accessible during the entire project. Working alongside the ED, there will be weekly check-ins long with the opportunity to engage with stakeholders to understand the needs and expectations from a public standpoint truly.

The project coordinator will provide bi-weekly reports on progress and areas needing attention to ensure the proper guidance.

What skills or technologies will help learners to complete the project?

In order to complete this project, students can self-teach, but it is beneficial to be familiar with:

  • Website builders
  • Membership Databases and CRM
  • UI / UX, HTML and coding design principles

Again, students can complete this project without any of the prior knowledge listed here. Students will be expected to research and learn more about the above as the project goes along.
