Explanatory Video Series

The videos are a 4 part series about the design and delivery of the Home Fellowship System website. We want to post this information to bring people up to speed on the complexity of an intermediate website and the range of challenges and issues to be considered when commissioning a new website.

The videos are:

  • An overview of the purpose of the website and design challenges.
  • Navigation and page content.
  • Members area
  • Content Management System
Video 1 - Purpose and Challenges

Home Fellowship System International is an interesting project because they want a flagship website that will play a number of roles. Their audience is global and multi-cultural.  An important requirement was to have a website that will translate content into over 30 of the most common languages.   

The website provides information on the mission, history and plans for HFS. The charity exists to share and make real the good news of the Bible in a way that is digestible and easily repeatable across cultures, people with many backgrounds, and interests and religious affinities. 

The website has membership functionality to manage visitor access to content. It manages user roles so that content can be added by authors and approved by website editors. The scope of content is wide and deep covering worship, social and spiritual training and to manage membership applications for individuals and fellowships.

The website is a catalyst to learn and develop use cases and requirements for a more sophisticated learning management system to manage expanding content and user requirements.

The website is easy to navigate. Visitors can readily explore content and apply for membership using registration and loin and logout pages.  The membership area is where members access HFS content.

This includes:

  • Teaching material on a growing range of specialist topics.
  • Online Bible.
  • Online praise and worship songs.
  • Forum.
  • Events manager.
  • HFS policies and application material.

The website was released with a base of content and that will expand dramatically, as will membership and visitor interactivity.
