Mapping Buddhist Sites in Toronto: class project in 2006-07 using Drupal

This year-long course was taught by Frances Garrett in 2006-07, and it involved the creation of 22 websites for Toronto Buddhist communities by teams of students. This was a second-year course with 100 students. All the community sites were organized on a map using Drupal. At the end of the year the class hosted a conference to present the work done. Below is the brief form of the syllabus and attached is the conference program, which describes the project in detail.
