The purpose of this project is to assist the Worcester Education Collaborative (WEC) in the development of an online community that provides a technological solution for the Worcester Public Schools (WPS) to maintain a wish list. In an effort to help fulfill the basic needs of the public school system, the WEC began work with WPI to develop an online community and database for the WPS. The project team gathered recommendations from WEC officials and WPS administrators, and designed a website that tracks each school's wish list needs within the public school system, and provides means for individuals and companies to fulfill those requests. In addition, the team generated a user manual and provided a promotional strategy and recommendations to maintain the online community.
