Overview: For this project we created an interactive digital textbook for Dr. Rutter. He requested that a site he started in 1996 be updated and moved into a medium that would be easy for an instructor to update, shareable with individuals outside of the institution and easy for multiple professionals to enhance.
We decided on WordPress as a platform and added a series of plugins to provide him with the requested functionality. GRAND Flash Album Gallery was used to display the large number of photo albums associated with the site lessons. The Tooltips plugin was used to create a hypertext glossary of terms, and the Wiki and WP Symposium were installed to allow contributors to share information, have dialogs about the content and receive newsletters from the site authors.
