IRIS

Background:

The IRIS program is a federally funded, multi-year grant that creates material for educators teaching students who will eventually work with people with disabilities. The organization had a 10 year old website that was rich with resource content, but it had usability challenges and needed a design update.

Services:

Square One initiated a project to redesign the IRIS website and integrate it with WordPress. MindSpark conducted all of the functional and visual testing as well as all data conversion of web copy from the old to the new site.

Outcome:

MindSpark has successfully designed and developed multi-layered test cases for the IRIS site and is currently testing the site. The group has also successfully converted over 3800 static web pages from the old site to the new one. The website is scheduled to be completed and launched in early August 2013.
