Successful Joomla Website/Learning Portal for a Healthy Message

4Web recently launched a website for Massachusetts Working on Wellness, a new statewide initiative to help Massachusetts employers develop and implement health-related policies and procedures for their employees. There are two faces to the site:

  • the publicly-accessible face that describes the program, accepts applications for entry into the program, and provides a myriad of health-related resources to the general public, and
  • an integrated LMS (Learning Management System) for registered program participants.


Because the program was brand new and the client hadn’t yet developed their course, 4Web needed to configure the LMS portion of the site pretty much in the dark. Then, with less than two weeks until the first class was to begin, the client started delivering sample course content for testing. With a very tight deadline looming, 4Web and the client were able to revise the content format and adjust the LMS configuration so that preliminary materials could be loaded and the class began on time. Customized instructional videos were created by 4Web to enable the client to manage the LMS, and they’re reporting that the entire project has been a great success!
