Prior to the development of this project, the South Dakota Cooperative Extension Service did not have an online registration system. Workshop participants registered manually; by telephone, by mail or at the door. This was an inefficient use of employee time and other resources. It was also inconvenient for participants. To answer this need, an online registration system was developed. ColdFusion was used as a database-to-web gateway. This database driven system allows the workshop manager to setup and manage the registration pages. The manager and the administrator pages are located on the Extension Services private intranet site. These include workshop management pages and participant management pages. The public pages are located the internet site and include the workshop search page and the individual registration pages.
