Project Summary

Each Spring semester Management Information Systems (MIS) students work on agile project teams with non-for-profit and startup businesses to develop websites that showcase a service or product. Projects promote the organizations and may provide shopping carts, intranets, or other tools. In Spring 2018, the students in Information Systems Development Projects (MGMT 3125) have worked with 12 client organizations. Some of the organizations include: City of Dike, Hands for Hope, No Show Belt, Barn Happy, and TLC: The Learning Center in Charles City, IA. For example, Barn Happy, established in 2003, is a Cedar Falls business that showcases an authentic Iowa experience through local food and products. The purpose of the new Barn Happy website is to drive traffic to the business. The features of the website are: visual media (360 degree tour, pictures of the business), shopping cart for high profit sellers (gift baskets), “Product Showcase” for smaller items, Facebook integration for informational purposes, and a modern look with a red & white color scheme. Barn Happy did have a previous website, but it was outdated, lacked required functionality, and didn’t include updated information. The hosting choice and training manual will allow the owners to maintain the site after the project handoff.
