ETFO Voice Magazine

About the Client

Voice is the magazine of 76,000 elementary teachers and educators in Ontario, facilitating a conversation among its members and beyond that considers relevant issues such as educators’ daily work, interests, innovation in teaching practice, policy, resources, perspectives on education and collaboration with community partners.

For the past four years, Perceptible has worked with the Elementary Teacher’s Federation of Ontario (ETFO) to produce the ETFO Voice magazine, in both traditional and digital formats. This year Perceptible developed ETFO’s new website to showcase the magazine and provide relevant content to their readers that was easily accessible and compliant with the new web site accessibility laws.

Strategy

Perceptible recommended a contemporary website that would be more interactive for users and fully compliant with AODA requirements. The secondary requirement of a more manageable site for their non-technical staff was address with a Drupal 7 CMS site build that made updating the site content quick and easy.

Content

Perceptible organizes ETFO’s article and advertising content then designs the printed magazine. This content is then tailored to create the digital publication, website and newsletter. Perceptible refines how the content is displayed, in the various formats, and provides the ‘ETFO Voice’ audience with the best possible experiences and accessibility for all including users with disabilities.

Technology

Drupal 7 CMS is the configuration behind the new ETFO Voice website; ensuring compliance with AODA WCAG II technical requirements with the most secure and reliable database setup. Scripts were developed to modify and migrate the legacy data from Wordpress to Drupal’s database configuration. Google Analytics, advanced advertising analytics and newsletter analytics were added to provide information on subscriber behaviour and site usage.

Measurable Result

ETFO Voice successfully integrates traditional, web, social and e-publishing to maximize their reader response.
