Designing a Community Calendar

As project manager of the Environmental Dashboard at Oberlin College in Oberlin Ohio, I designed and managed the execution of a community-wide calendar platform. The Oberlin Community Calendar allowed for members of the community of about 8000 people, to submit their events to about 25 screens installed all over the city in grocery stores, the city office and inside the local schools. 

My Role

Managed community relationships for a successful rollout

Designed and oversaw the software development process

Drafted and applied content moderation guidelines

Duration

12 months

Events on this calendar are also displayed on screens installed all over town. These displays also show the work we had to do to ensure that any submission is constrained for the 16:9 screen aspect ratio without overflowing text mishaps.
