Champlain Valley Educator Development Center (CVEDC) offers quality professional learning courses to educators and administrators, instruction that is tied to the Vermont Core Standards. CVEDC’s instructors and presenters share best practices that enhances student learning and performance.
CVEDC’s site needed upgrading. It used an older version of Joomla and the Center wanted an easy way to show categorized events and streamline registration.
Paragon moved CVEDC’s site from Joomla to a WordPress template with customized plugins.
The site’s new calendar plugin allows events be be easily tagged and categorized to enhance searching for events by grade level and discipline. Also, the plugin allows site visitors to view the calendar in different views, from a more traditional calendar format to a visually appealing posterboard setting.
Each event includes a built-in map and easy-to-download course syllabus. Event registration forms are integrated into CVEDC’s contact and email management software, and formatted for both individual and group registration.
