Matrix Group Launches Online Tutorial Series for the Nuclear Threat Initiative

May 19, 2014
NTIMatrix Group, a digital agency specializing in web design, development, E-marketing and association management systems (AMS), announces the launch of an online tutorial series for the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI).

NTI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with a mission to strengthen global security by reducing the risk of use and preventing the spread of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons.

In partnership with the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, NTI developed a set of educational tutorials to build a basic understanding of these issues for anyone new to the field — including students, young professionals and media — or serve as a refresher course for people with more experience.

NTI collaborated with Matrix Group on making the tutorials a reality.

  • Created an interactive website that features tools to educate visitors on the issue:
    • An interactive map that shows which countries are part of the Non Proliferation Treaty, Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, and the many other treaties.
    • A timeline that takes visitors through a brief history of the events leading up to, and resulting from, the negotiation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
    • A glossary, quizzes and more
  • Created a branded, shareable video to introduce the website to visitors. Audiences get an overview and can walk through the tutorials and their features.
  • Implemented the website in WordPress and made it responsive. The website is mobile-friendly and easy for visitors to navigate on their smartphones and tablets.

The interactive tutorials include overviews of key issues, a glossary, maps, quizzes and more.

“The site meets our goals to create a set of friendly, engaging learning tools. We are able to add new modules on our own through the existing content management system, which creates efficiencies and flexibility as we expand,” said Carmen MacDougall, NTI vice president for communications. “Working with Matrix has been great. They’ve been dedicated to our success.”
