Interactive Education

One of the main goals of the platform is educating the visitors, providing facts about the tragedy and information on how to prevent similar happenings in the future. To engage people with such a big amount of data, we implemented numerous interactive elements on the platform, such as maps, animation, photo and video galleries, and dynamic forms.

Communcation

The Centre actively communicates with its visitors, organizes numerous conferences and events. To optimize the work of the personnel of the Centre, we have created numerous feedback forms, event accreditation request forms, and other applications that are processed in the single fdForge system.

Once the platform was launched

Having realized the primary version of the system within a short time-frame of 3 months, we continued working on the system. We have analysed user behaviour, simplified and shortened the introductory page, changed the news mechanics to improve the publishing process and their perception.
