Project Description

The project objective is to build a drupal based massive open enrollment style community for golf enthusiasts around the world. Drawing from lessons learned with Khan Academy, Coursera, Udemy and others, our community will offer to golf fans, instructors, academies and vendors the opportunity to connect, share and develop the sport for the individual and the community.

Teachers will have the opportunity to post video lessons, which students may enroll in. Students will have the opportunity to post videos of their performances, which other students and teachers may review and critique. Vendors and institutional partners will be able to advertise and analyze both teacher and student contributions for their own objectives. Students will have access to the finest golf instructors around the world and teachers will have a far larger group to market their instruction techniques and materials to through our community.

This is a big project but I'm hoping the drupal platform and your expertise will make it manageable. Additionally, I want to use plug and play options wherever possible-if someone has already created a platform to accomplish what we want, or with minor customization, we want to go that route. I know that there may be some customization required now, or later, to accomplish my long term objectives.

I would like you to explain to me some of the key modules to accomplishing this project. For example, how you will achieve the video sharing component. I’m no drupal expert but I have tried to familiarize myself with it so as to better work with you. I will need your advice on hosting and other issues. When the project is done I will need someone to continue to administer the site. You may choose to do this or

I have a lot of experience working with freelancers. This is a pretty big project though. It is very important to me that you know exactly what you are doing and can communicate well. If I am asking for something that cannot reasonably be done, I need to know that. If you have a suggestion for a better idea, I want to hear that. If there is a problem, I want you to communicate.

I need this site to look and feel great to the users-like those popular social media sites with heavy mobile and viral use. If you lack the expertise in this area, or any, to accomplish these things, just say so, and we can work around your area of expertise.

Please provide samples of your previous work in drupal. Do not bid if you lack true expertise AND proof of your work.

Please provide an estimate of your total budget, as well as your budget itemized by area of functionality as numbered above. If we hire more than one provider, we may split the project and this budget itemization will help determine whether that is necessary. I have put a large range in the budget because, frankly, I don't know what is going to be required, and what skill level this is all going to require. I am going to be frugal, but my confidence in your abilities will make me more likely to pay more than simply picking a low bid.

Please provide an estimate of the time to complete each feature/functionality, or total time to completion

Thank you for your assistance. We will reply to your questions but preference will be given to the highly ranked, experienced provider who demonstrates an understanding of the needs of this project. I will be interviewing you to make sure that we get along and that the relationship works for both of us. If I find the right person I will end the project early and assign to you.
