The Step Registration System on the Drupal 6 platform was so successful that I was asked to create a second functional site for the Mitacs Globalink Program. Drupal 7 was used as a web-application development platform with internet access for our end users. Although typically put in the CMS category, Drupal has significant benefits as an app development platform, including attractive and rapid user interface creation with built in mobile capacity. The Globalink Events Portal went live nation-wide in May 2013. Statistics 2013:

  • Community of 250 student users (expected to double for 2014)
  • 6 internal administrator users
  • Access to registration information for other internal department and external community of GSA (student advisors)
