Eating Disorders Victoria
The students from Monash spent the year building an online portal (using CakePHP) which will give EDV’s members the ability to view and update their personal details via our website, as well as renew their memberships online. As part of the same project, the students developed an online library system which will allow members to search our library catalogue and reserve or request items themselves. The library system is partly automated with the implementation of a barcode system. They built all the databases from scratch as we had no existing membership or library systems in place. The project also incorporates email scheduling and triggering, for example when memberships are due for renewal, books are due back or have been returned to the shelf. It uses PayPal as a payment gateway for memberships and library postage costs.
The students were great – friendly and full of excellent ideas. Their communication was also very good.
