Development of an Educational Website on Joomla

Client: Dragons in Europe

Client Background

Dragons in Europe is a specialist provider of Mandarin teaching materials and the services of professional Mandarin teachers to UK and European Schools. The client has provided its services to over 800 schools. Parents, teachers, school principals and other individuals interested in speaking Mandarin can also shop for different textbooks and study materials used in many primary and secondary schools on our client's website.

Client's Objective

The client wanted us to develop and design a functional website which could spread their business across Europe.

Project Challenges

The client needed a highly functional site with the ability to engage visitors who could be anyone from a language teacher, school's principle, an adult or a parent interested in speaking or teaching Mandarin to their children. Designing a website as per the mindset of different users posed a challenge.

In addition to it, maintaining the site's loading speed without hampering the user experience was also a key demand of our client. Also, the site must be easily navigable and its content must be easily editable.

Solutions Offered by SunTec

Using the information we were given, we chose Joomla as the CMS for developing our client's website. We divided the web development process into multiple stages and bought together a team of web developers, designers and technology consultants. The team first carried out the requirement analysis which was followed by creating wireframes and prototypes. Once the wireframes and prototypes were approved by our client, they moved on to coding the website and complete the web development process.

We provided the following solutions to our client:

  • We placed the most essential information on the homepage making it easier for the end users to find what they are looking for.
  • The site has an easily navigable structure urging the visitors to click and browse the website.
  • The contact number of the client was placed on top of every page to make it easy for the end users to get in touch with the client.
  • To allure visitors and encourage them to follow our client, we integrated twitter feeds and video section on the home page of the website.
  • Our client can also share informative blogs and articles on the website.
  • We deployed time-saving and cost-effective strategies to make sure that the website is finished within the stipulated time and budget.

To design a functional and bespoke website for Dragons in Europe, we used the following technologies:

  • Joomla
  • CSS
  • jQuery
  • MySQL


The result is a website optimized for search engines which showed better results in comparison to its competitor websites.
