South African Elections' Monitoring web app

voting stations of South African general election 2019We conceptualised and realised a web app with an ACTIVITY & ALERT MAP (peacemakers.care) for the monitoring of 119 voting stations located in the densely populated townships Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha, Cape Town. The web app has been used by odd 300 monitors, so-called "peace makers", during the South African general elections on Mai 8th 2019 in the context of the violence prevention programme.

The "action map" is a technically & conceptually robust and straightforward developed application (pilot) with live update functions (clients get controlled map & message updates without reloading the website) and a simple color coding system (green, orange, red) for status signaling. In order to communicate between the operational centers, roving teams, voting station leaders and head office we applied several popular communication channels, including a connection to the local police.

Realised within only a few days we experienced an intensive and challenging time, in collaboration with Hilltop (hilltop-centre.org) and Peace Centre, South Africa (qpc.org.za) - having been rewarded with a lot of positive feedback and done with fun !

New su-pa server, "The horses", "Quick Boxes" and other stuff

supa has a brand new web server, a Windows Server 2016 with IIS 10 which is currently (one of) the most robust server, both in security and performance issues available.

  • The server runs as a VM (Virtual Machine) on Microsoft Azure
  • About 20 web apps are running on the web server, inclusive save-energy.tips, the students' project website (WordPress).
  • "The horses" (the working and interaction environment for students and teachers, more infos on teachingweb.org) are not on the new web server but all previous "horses" More...

"The horse" concept presented

We had the honor to present the concept of "The horse" at two conferences.

Eliane Suter delivered speeches.

The first event was the "bili-Erfa-Tagung 2018: digital und analog", a cantonal meeting at the Zurich University of teacher education (PHZH) and the 2nd took place at the national wide event "Forum de la maturité professionnelle 2018" in Martigny (VS) organized by IFFP (Institute fédéral des hautes études en formation professionnelle).

In the context of the events we created the mini website teachingweb.org containing the main info material of the concept "The horse".

Swirls - more than best wishes from su-pa for 2018

How to Swirl ?

Go to www.swirls.fun, move the things around with your mouse or fingers and see what happens!

Admittedly started as a little "Happy-new-year-experiment" for you & us: "Wet, breezy, fiery, down-to-earth - the elements can be elegantly moved quite as how one might wish in everyday life." Swirls is more for us, it's a kind of concept that we like to play with and hope to find the time and people to pursue.
