The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity
ASSOCIATIONS & NON-PROFITS - Content Rich Drupal Website
Although rich in content, the center sought help in designing and implementing their website – one built on an open-source Drupal platform.
As a Drupal shop well familiar with designing website and software solutions for nonprofit organizations, Breakthrough Technologies partnered with the center, working one-on-one with their in-house IT expert to complete the site design, incorporate effective modules, and finish implementation.
The center works with world-renowned scholars, clinicians, and researcher to bring together the best information and scholarship on bioethical issues. It has been involved in the publication of more than 20 books and booklets, and for years has produced The Bioethics Podcast. Between these and other deep resources, the center represents a major publishing site – one that unless well designed might easily overwhelm users and administrators.
As part of its software solution, BT incorporated Drupal’s OpenPublish that offers a variety of page templates and publishing processes.
“OpenPublish, a distribution of Drupal, was an ideal choice for the center project,” says Doug Wilson, BT Managing Partner. “‘Distributions are assemblies of modules and themes that give you more out-of-the-box options geared toward a specific vertical market – in this case, publishing.”
The result: a beautifully rendered, uncomplicated content site, well organized, free of complex customizations, and completely maintained by the center. The site easily accesses numerous embedded podcasts, integrates social media, and even offers event management features.
