Course-Oriented Booking System: North London Buddhist Centre
The North London Buddhist Centre website is a course-oriented booking system. Designed in collaboration with the NLBC team, it features both an original, customer-facing User Interface (UI) and parallel, Admin back-end UI to manage a database of courses and events.
The NLBC runs an extensive programme of classes, courses, and workshops that need routine management by a non-specialist office team. They need to be able to add, edit, delete, or repeat events with specific parameters and options. The customer-facing pages were required to break event types down into specific, navigable categories. The back-end admin tools needed to be intuitive enough to require minimal training of in-house, volunteer reception. Individual events needed the facility to pay a deposit on advance booking, and for the site to provide a report system for confirmation of payment via PayPal.
