SiaEducacion

Drupal Version: 
Why does this website deserve to win?: 
This is a really complex set of sites. It consists of 6 sites all interconected. The project includes a Community at http://comunidad.siaeducacion.org which is a place for teachers to share knowledge with each other and work on projects. There's a digital repository at http://coleccion.siaeducacion.org which has hundreds of educational resources that teachers can use in classroom. There's also portals, which all can be reached from the main portal. The sites were very complex and they all share information using Services throught REST.
Website Launch Date: 
Monday, August 8, 2011

How It Was Done (optional): 
The community was made using OG mainly and it looks a lot like Facebook, it has a really nice UI that we worked on for months. The digital repository has a very complex system to handle the workflows because for every educational resource there are 3 people involved and we had to write it from scratch because modules like Workflow wouldn't suit our needs. In the end, we used over 120 modules and features, many of them are very specific but a few of them were contributed back to Drupal.org All the sites use Apache Solr and run on multiple servers.
