Master’s Pentecostal Seminary
Master's Pentecostal Seminary is a church-based Bible school located in Toronto, Ontario. Students enrolled through Master's allow them to complete their post-secondary degrees at the partnered Bible college - Tyndale - and specialize in the Pentecostal stream. This give the students to receive accreditation with Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. Master's website purpose to stand out as a college of its own, therefore a website with its own identity and branding is important.
Master's, just like Outtahand, want to be able to make updates without the costs of CMS, the solution was to use PHP again to allow Master's staff to update a text file and content on the website will be updated. The client also has the ability to drag and drop MP3 and PDF files through using an FTP program and the website automatically gets updated with these files.
Master's target audience is 50+ working male, but the client also wants a site that appeals to the younger group who just graduated from universities.
Outtahand is a competitive volleyball league that also runs tournaments across the Greater Toronto Area. The previous website was difficult to update, not user friendly and unappealing. Outtahand wanted to expand their website to contain more media, the ability to update information easily and most importantly, a website that is easy to use by its visitors as the website has high weekly traffic due to weekly tournaments.
To reduce the initial cost and the possibility of re-doing the website due to new versions of content management systems, Outtahand opted out in using WordPress or any open source CMS. The challenge was, how to build a site so that the client can make updates as well? The solution was using PHP to read text files that are easy for the client to update and the longevity of the site will be upheld.
