Highlights

  • Pared down to the basics

    With the generous amount of resources available, I chose to limit my design to the basics to reduce the user's mental load.

  • Custom module to display resources

    I love the Views module, I do, but in this case it just couldn't handle three different content types, two different taxonomies, and grouping every which way from Sunday. Needless to say, I created my own module to display the three content types, nicely separated, and grouped by title, era, subject, or theme.

  • Provided access control

    The Teacher Institute materials can only be accessed by Teacher Institute partcipants. To enable that I used the Content Access, Rules, and Registration Code modules to enable per-node access.
