Stace Felder

I'm a web developer focused on content development strategies and creating the code to make it all happen.

My Latest Project: Student Dismissal

The issue: Dismiss up to 290 students within 30 minutes from multiple locations through multiple exits.

The need: Real-time, up-to-the second data on each student, their location, where they’re needed and when, all accessible to teachers, dismissal staff, front desk personnel and after-school program coordinators throughout the campus.

The solution: A web app designed and optimized to run on tablets on the street, phones in the hallways, desktops in the classrooms and projectors in common spaces. Students are called, tracked, and dismissed with simple taps or clicks while all data is stored in a searchable and sortable archive. Built as an app but packaged as a WordPress plugin to provide user authentication and data.

Content

From data structure and information architecture to writing and editing, content is what I'm all about. You, your company, your organization - you've got a lot of information that you need to share. But it needs to be organized and presented in a way that makes sense to your audience. I can do that. This is what I mean

Code

When it comes time to turn your content plans into reality, you want fast, responsive code that delivers your information to your users. You also want code that's easy to maintain and update as well as being flexible and powerful enough to adapt to changes. Take a look at what I've done

Strategy

The Loop

Live Oak needed to move away from its system of communicating with employees via email; multiple updates, lost attachments and sheer traffic made it difficult to effectively share and later find information. The goal of The Loop was to create a central, easily accessible location for that information; the challenge was to make it a daily destination for the staff, a place they would be sure to check every day.

My solution was to create a dashboard front page, giving the user a snapshot of the day ahead. Items include a daily message from the Head of School, news, announcements, events, meetings and attendance as well as a personalized greeting, current weather and even raffle prizes.

Deeper content includes employee policies and guidelines, curriculum maps, and emergency information. Tools include directory, calendar, resource scheduler and substitute teacher locator. Building on the structure of the Family Tree site, labeling and navigation were already familiar.

dis-list
Family Tree

At Live Oak School, the challenge was to transition from a paper, hand-delivered newsletter with linear content to a non-linear, digitally-delivered web site while keeping a structure familiar to both readers and authors and also streamlining and modernizing the information.

My solution was to implement a refined data structure with understandable hierarchies, simple navigation and clear labeling. The data structure also allows the site to function as a publishing platform for multiple distribution channels, including mobile devices, Facebook, Twitter, RSS and Calendar feeds and a weekly email newsletter.
