As IDP continues to succeed and grow, we recognize the importance of giving back to the communities we serve. We do this in a number of ways:
IDP is currently developing a new web site for the Lees Summit Symphony and it will be launched summer 2016. IDP is doing a large portion of the work as a charitable donation to the symphony. IDP will also host the new LS Symphony website. The current site is at www.lssymphony.org
IDP has been hosting a free Moodle server for teachers since 2003. Moodle is an open source PHP / MySQL web application developed for online learning and teaching. It is similar to other online learning software. Teachers can sign up for a free account, setup a course, have students enroll in their course, setup assignments, journals, discussion thread and take quizzes and tests. The software is free to use and we host it on one of our virtual servers at no charge to teachers or students. There are currently teachers from all around the world that use our Moodle server for an online learning environment.
Since 2005, IDP has been hosting and maintaining this church web site for free. The web site is www.grace4all.org and the church is in Lee's Summit, Missouri. There is a content management system installed on the web site that church staff can login to and make changes. Changes that need to be made outside of the CMS system are sent to IDP. In the Fall of 2013 we built a new and improved version of the Grace UMC web site.
IDP developed a Magento e-commerce web site for Timbali Crafts. Timbali Crafts is an organization in Swaziland, South Africa that helps AIDs orphans. There is a group of women in Swaziland that care for the AIDs orphans. The women make purses, bags and other items and sell them in order to raise money. The women use the money to provide for themselves and care for the AIDs orphans. Swaziland has one of the highest rates of HIV in the world. The E-Commerce Magento web site is used to sell the Timbali Crafts products online. IDP also hosts the web site.
