Web app with UNI•Login integration: Twentyfour (formerly HTML24) developed an online family tree web app for the Danish National Archives.
Rigsarkivet – The Danish National Archives is Denmark’s memory. With 250 employees, Rigsarkivet aims to collect documents that have historical relevance or may have it in the future.
With texts and pictures, Danish history is documented. Historical treaties, the history of ordinary Danes, and documents concerning wars and kings.
It is a tradition that, in Denmark, goes back about 1500 years.
The Danish National Archives’ basis for existence is the preservation and spread of Danish history.
Where do we come from?
As part of the wish to educate on Danish history, Rigsarkivet sought to build a tool that would be interactive and entertaining for primary school students while still teaching them about Danish history. The choice fell on an online family tree, which the students themselves must fill in with the help of Rigsarkivet’s documents and archives. Particularly important was that the students were able to log into the system with UNI•Login.
“Integration with UNI•Login is a key part. We are very pleased with the results provided by Twentyfour.” – Mai-Brit Lauritsen, Project Manager, Rigsarkivet.
UNI•Login is used by both schools and universities to authenticate students and teachers upon login. It is in some way comparable to NemID but is only used by educational institutions.
UNI•Login’s databases contain information about the students’ and teachers’ names, CPR numbers, and all school-related information. An example of its use is National Tests. Here too, the students will log in with their UNI•Login.
Agreement between Twentyfour and Rigsarkivet:
- Web-based app development.
- Implementation of AM Copenhagen’s graphic design.
- Integration with UNI•Login.
- Integration with Facebook.
- The given option is to log in with either UNI•Login or Facebook.
- Fully responsive – works on all displays.
- Continuous maintenance, updating, and monitoring of the system.
Twentyfour has built stamtraet.dk using the latest technology in web development.
“The back end of stamtraet.dk is very intuitive to use. It’s easy for our editors to expand content in the web app” – Mai-Brit Lauritsen, Project Manager, Rigsarkivet.
Every computer, phone, and tablet had to have easy access to the digital family tree. It was decided to develop a web-based app. The family tree was built in WordPress with HTML5, PHP, and jQuery, so the app would be able to work across all platforms. That would make the digital family tree to be accessible by computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Since the family tree uses UNI•Login’s confidential data, a high level of security measures was implemented on the site. The project was also optimized according to WCAG 2.0 standards and GDPR.
