Site for the project “INCLUSIVEHUB”
Period of implementation of the project:
The NGO “Emmaus” established the Inclusive Hub as an open space for the implementation of initiatives for education, leisure, and career guidance for young people with disabilities and graduates of boarding schools. In order to inform the audience about the events and projects that will take place in the hub, a website is necessary.
At the same time, it is not a secret that, for a successful start in the field, it is important for young specialists to gain their first professional experience under the guidance of experienced mentors, but it is very difficult for beginners to find vacancies. Even more so when it comes to young specialists with disabilities.
In addition, it is important to note that one of the problems of IT education is the fact that teachers are usually not engaged in real projects, and hence the lack of practical skills passed on to students.
In partnership with NTUU “KPI”, Infopulse organized a project to develop a website for the Inclusive Hub. KPI students of the 1st-5th years of studies acted as developers, testers, analysts, team leaders, and designers. Among the people involved in the project was Vitaliy Prytula, a student of National Technical University “Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute”, who is at the same time a supervisee of the Emmaus organization.
University teachers performed the roles of project managers and technical managers, and Infopulse specialists were the mentors. The customer of the project was the NGO “Emmaus”.
During the project, students and teachers acquired practical skills in the following technologies: ASP.NET Core, Angular, PostgreSQL, Figma, Razor Pages, Google Maps APIs.
The site has been designed in such a way that it can be used as a design platform for creating similar sites in the future.
A website has been created for the Inclusive Hub, https://inclusivehub.com.ua, which will feature news and announcements of the hub, as well as the information about cooperation and donations.
Students gained their first practical experience of participating in a real project, acquired practical skills of working with modern technologies ,
project management and teamwork, underwent vocational training organized by Infopulse during the project, took part in training sessions on writing a CV and going to interviews, and developed their English language skills.
Vitaliy Prytula, a student of Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute and a supervisee of the NGO “Emmaus”, took part in the development of the project, which not only became his diploma paper, but also an important step in social adaptation and the first experience of teamwork. Vitaly has successfully defended his diploma paper and plans to master the profession of a web developer in the future.
Teachers of NTUU “KPI” updated their knowledge of modern technologies and project management methodology.
All participants gained experience of working on a socially important project and used the opportunity to cooperate in an inclusive team with equal opportunities for all its members
