Project Description

The project is to add a social networking/ ecommerce platform to an Australian website has neither at present. In a technical requirement sense, it will be like a dating site combined with a social networking site (e.g. [url removed, login to view]).



## Deliverables

**Overview**
The project is to add a social networking/ ecommerce platform to an AUSTRALIAN? website has neither at present. In a technical requirement sense, it will be like a dating site combined with a social networking site (e.g. [url removed, login to view]).

**The Website**
The website is very popular with high school students, they come to it for notes on subjects and they participate in a forum with close to 250 000 members.
The website is [url removed, login to view] The forum is powered by vBulletin.

**Project Overview - Aim**
Users, who want to be tutors, login to place an ad for tutoring services - for free. Other? students then look through the advertisements and? book, online, a tutoring session with one of? the tutors. They pay for the session online and we take a commission. Once they have paid, they are given the contact information of the tutor they have booked with.
THEN, once they have the lesson, they are able to leave feedback for the tutor - like [url removed, login to view] Like eBay, only users who have "bought" from the tutor, can leave feedback from them, but instead of "positive, neutral, negative," the score would be score "1 -5"


**So basically-
** secure log in
user updatable pages
ecommerce system with online delivery
feedback function, score of 1 -5.



**Notes - Important**

The user will have to be able to update their page. They will have to answer set questions with numerical or categorical answers. For example "what was your mark in Subject X"? They would then enter a numerical answer.? BASED ON THESE ANSWERS, USERS WOULD HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SEARCH THRUOUGH THE PROFILES - E.G. RANK TUTORS BY HIGHEST MARK IN SUBJECT X /FEEDBACK SCORE.

Administrators would need to be able to override all information on the profiles.

We do not want tutors placing information on their profiles that would allow users to directly contract the tutor without going through the site, so a function on the website that would alert us to email address/ phone numbers being posted would be needed. (Even something very simple).

We are looking for an add-on to the main website, that is SEPEARTE to the forum. We do not need to port the members of the forum into the social networking aspect. So we just need an add-on to the site, if it helps, you can almost imagine there being NO existing website. That said, the fonts and colours will have to match the current website.
