Description

I have dedicated the past six years to managing and expanding Oeclab, an educational startup with the vision of expanding entrepreneurship in Korea, with my two co-founders. Our core philosophy is that the 21st century, due to its ever-shifting demands, necessitates an environment in which everyone can find careers that best utilize their skills and interests. To achieve the goal, we created education programs and cultural movement. "Entship" -- an abbreviation of entrepreneurship -- is an education brand of Oeclab. I made and operated three web applications for Entship.

Description

The rebranding of the entrepreneurship education program necessitated a website reorganization. First, I separated blog contents and the education program brochures that were mixed on the existing entship.kr website. The blog posts were moved to the new blog hosted by Naver, and program brochures were moved to entshipschool.com. In consideration of scalability, the programs for college students and the general public should be exposed to the website. Various programs were categorized by customers, divided into teenagers, young people, and corporate programs, and detail information about programs was introduced on each page. The necessary information of each program is shown on the detail page, and the administrator can easily manage the program in admin pages. Program inquiries and applications are linked with Slack's webhook feature to receive Slack notifications when registered.

Takeaway

  • I went through the process of gathering the opinions of various stakeholders and making them into one. All the members of the company became stakeholders in order to expose all the educational programs for teenagers, young people, and the general public on the website. Through over communication, we gathered together different purposes and created a website plan.
  • The project was completed with entire remote collaboration. All of the developer and designer except myself were freelancers. I have had the experience of making websites through only online communication with them.
  • Administrators can control all products with the admin pages. Because I had to deal with a wide range of education products, I considered a lot of designing the database and admin pages. I used the Controller Module to minimize complexity. By making entshipschool.com, I learned more about a software design pattern.

landing page

Description

After rebranding, entshipschool.com was used as the domain instead of entship.kr. Visitors of entship.kr were redirected to entshipschool.com. After all, we didn't have to use redirection of lnading page.

I planned to deliver news on entrepreneurship via newly created entship.kr. It introduced news, columns, blogs, videos, and events about entrepreneurship.

The new entship.kr also tried to solve one problem. The problem was that the existing entship.kr made with WordPress had operated for nearly five years. Thanks to the steady accumulation of contents, every time users search for entrepreneurship, the contents of entship.kr are exposed at the top and 404 error(page not found) is exposed. To solve this problem, the new entship.kr website has a mapping redirection function between the existing content URL and the new content URL. The search bot was notified of the transfer to a new URL, and the user was redirected to the transferred URL. As a result, over 7,000 users see redirected content, instead of 404 error page.

Takeaway

  • By redirecting the top pages in search results, I was able to minimize the loss of information associated with website reorganization. Through this process, I learned more about search engine robots, search engine policy, sitemap and HTTP status codes.
  • I used Bulma for the first time in my work. Bulma is lighter because it uses CSS3 without JavaScript. Because people are not familiar with Bulma's basic design, I was able to make a unique web site without customizing.

Description

It was a website for introducing the company's entrepreneurship education programs and for spreading entrepreneurship. It provided information about entrepreneurship education programs and related content. We also offered free education content for entrepreneurship education. I made entshipk.kr using WordPress in a brief space of time.

Takeaway

  • I tested many options: Wordpress, XE, Laravel, and non-framework development. Though I usually used LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stacks, I chose to work with WordPress to take advantage of the fast development speed, powerful CMS features, and various plug-ins. WordPress had an amazing ecosystem and it helped me make a website at convenience. I learned the power of the ecosystem derived from WordPress such as Plugin and Theme.
