Last week we launched Connect4Learning, the first component of a multi-staged rollout for a groundbreaking interdisciplinary prekindergarten curriculum by Kaplan Early Learning Company.
Earlier this week the new, responsive HRW.org went live. The launch follows months of strategy, design and development collaboration between my hard working colleagues at Aten and the passionate, talented team at Human Rights Watch.
For cause-driven organizations, a website is a place to highlight impact, share resources, and build support. While a blog or brochure site can achieve some of these goals, it rarely does it all. Unfortunately, we all too often find organizations confined by the free and low-cost online platforms accessible to them. With that in mind, we’ve built OpenAid. It’s a free and open-source website starter kit developed for nonprofits and grassroots organizations. Its feature set is robust, its architecture flexible, and it can be installed in minutes.
Most non-profits are great about establishing a vision, mission, and goals for their organizations. All too often though, that strategic work ends up divorced from an organization’s online presence and communications approach. When you’re in the throes of the non-profit hustle and staff are strapped for time with deadlines looming, the website, blog, or Twitter account is oftentimes the first thing to be neglected. While this reality is understandable, an organization’s content is crucial to its success.
I’m excited to announce that on May 13th, I’ll be participating in the Africa Roundtable, a webinar organized by Kabissa that brings together people in interested in Africa to learn from and network with one another. I’ll be talking about how OpenAid, a Drupal distribution for NGOs and NPOs, is helping organizations worldwide establish a strong online presence.
Here are the details:
For the past several months we have been working with Colorado Public Radio to architect, design and develop the next iteration of CPR.org. A few days ago, the new website went live. Take a look on your computer, your tablet, or your smart phone. Better yet, listen on any device. The website is fully responsive, and features a persistent media player that streams audio while you are browsing.
A few weeks ago, we helped a launch a new website for the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, an important partnership of key economic and climate research organizations. The incredibly fast project was built with OpenAID, a turnkey website platform designed to help NGOs create cost-effective program-focused websites quickly. Read about the project and how OpenAID helped GCEC reach communications and timeline goals.
After months of collaboration, design, and development, we're thrilled to have helped the World Resources Institute launch WRI.org. The new website is fully responsive, beautifully redesigned, and built on a powerful, centralized publishing platform.
Issues impacting the world's resources are critically important to the security and wellbeing of people everywhere, in all parts of the world. The new design for WRI.org drives that home, acutely focused on global human impact.
