A platform built to install healthy habits into communities in and around London’s boroughs. Free educational materials on how to start.
Thriving Stockwell is a borough in London to which my contractors are also looking to introduce the platform. The idea behind this project is to educate people inside of the borough on the ways they can contribute to their neighborhood. Thriving Stockwell is one of many neighborhoods to which this platform will be introduced. Educating people on the activities in their area is a massive benefit as you can participate or volunteer. There is also an events page on which you can see which events are hosted in your area.
I would say groups are the platform’s core alongside the courses themselves. Groups provide the means like a forum where you can roll into discussions regarding a specific topic of your own. Several moderators, as well as administrators, moderate each group. This is a custom feature developed on top of the original theme. Each group has a set of discussion tabs, imagery, documents, moderation, and similar.
Resources or, in other words, Courses are written materials on how exactly you can contribute. To help, you first need to know how to make your vicinity healthy; these courses will give you exactly that. Each class comes with materials, quizzes, or both written by a contractor.
Authentication has been built from the group up. Default BuddyBoss authentication wasn’t offering any advanced validation, and it could receive an unlimited amount of bots. With new custom authentication, I enabled Social Media Auth and advanced email and other password field level validation. Only a human goes registers on the platform.
Users can also register using the form or one of the two available options: Google or Facebook.
Using Social Media for registration purposes you would need to accept their documents which are provided per application submition for review.
Login also allowed two ways of Authenticating. You could use Google or Facebook or our custom-made login form.
Groups are a foundation of a BuddyBoss platform. Next to various design updates I’ve done on groups as a layout but also for each of the groups themselves, some other functionalities were added.
Groups page has been re-branded from the default look BuddyBoss offers. Each group in an icon variant displays whether that group is Public / Private / Hidden ( Hidden can be seen only by group creators ). The design layout has been made to match the rest of the website’s color and style.
Each group is now showcasing transparently their group administrators as well as moderators.
Discussions have been rebuilt design-wise to match the rest of the website’s palette and feel.
We all love privacy, so why not have private discussions visually showcased.
Courses are another key concept of the platform. You can educate yourself for both free and paid way on the materials you’d like to know more about. Stripe of Paypal gateways smoothly integrated to handle all the fussy stuff.
You just have to enjoy creating your course without a fuss. Beautiful UI to showcase what matters; Your Content.
The course type has been visually showcased. Choose whether you’d like a list or grid view of the content.
Course page showing Syllabus for users to go through. Each course can display several lessons, quizzes, and similar types of materials each course has.
Users will either be able to enroll in the course right away, OR they will need to purchase the course before proceeding. You also have the ability to accept users even post-payment manually.
We all love gifts! Why not use the ability to gift a specific course(s) to a friend or a family member.
Users can learn on the go. Mobile – Tablet – Desktop, all supported. Have I mentioned it also comes with a mobile application?
You can visit any of your courses at any time and analyze analytics to see how well they are progressing. You can modify each course to showcase it on Google.
Create and share events. Free or Paid. Events can now come with tools that allow you to integrate with a live map listing all your events. The map is an actual city map; therefore street needs to be valid. You can also host your event online via Zoom or some other provider.
