We needed something to catalog the books in our Media Center. We wanted the ability for students to rate the books and to be able to give some comments about the book. We wanted to be able to search by author, genre, and/or publisher. We needed the ability to approve any reviews that went on the website prior to them being published.
We read the reviews about JReviews and we used the demo to get a feel for how it worked. JReviews met all of our requirements and I found them to be very helpful and they answered all of my questions.
JReviews is the cornerstone of our website. We currently have approximately 2,000 book listing and teachers and students are able to search books, submit reviews, and read about books so they can find books that interest them or meet their needs.
The most important selling point for me is the support I have received form Alejandro. He has been very helpful as I solve the problems and has helped me configure our website so it is user-friendly and informative. I have been able to do all of the things we wanted to accomplish and as new ideas have come up we have been able to modify our site to meet our expanding needs.
PlayShakespeare.com is the Ultimate Free Shakespeare Resource providing high-quality plays, reviews, a discussion forum, a download library, and the latest Bard news.
At first, the site had a very limited roadmap, but users requested features right away. Having reviews was always part of the original plan, but we implemented other aspects like a document library, discussion forum, and a customized search first.
After a survey of the available options, we chose jReviews because it appeared there was strong support and a future. For us, the product cost was only a small part of the overall investment—most of it going into the time and effort of building and maintaining a reviews section, which could all be lost if a product suddenly died. So the stability of jReviews played a major role in our decision. jReviews was able to do most of what we needed out of the box. But we have very specific needs that pushed the limits of the product and the developer responded to a multitude of challenges, solving our every need.
We use JReviews to allow our team of Shakespeare reviewers worldwide to contribute reviews on theatrical performances, books, DVDs, feature stories, or just about anything Shakespeare related. Reviews are evaluated on a variety of criteria as well are cross-referenced to the theatre profiles and reviewer profiles in Community Builder. Custom fields allow us to automate and monetize our reviews with aspects like Amazon and other product links. The Listings Module helps more fully integrate JReviews content into relevant areas of our site. In the future, we hope to build a directory of Shakespeare products to take full advantage of the power of JReviews. By extending Joomla's core content functionality we're able to do things previously not possible.
We're happy to see that the developer was interested in seeing jReviews work in real world applications. While it may be a challenge for some to learn the ins-and-outs of the product initially, the benefits are clear in the long run. We're trying to find other ways to leverage the power of jReviews and push it to its limits.
NOEP is a nonprofit project of the Texas Nurses Association/Foundation. NOEP provides free, evidence-based continuing education to nurses on cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and survivorship. Our goal is to educate all nurses to create changes in nursing practice.
Our web site is dedicated to providing free eLearning courses on cancer-related topics for nurses in all fields of practice. We needed to add reviews to the individual courses to better understand our users’ needs and experiences.
Our site was built around the JoomlaLMS Learning Management System for our online courses. JoomlaLMS had already created an easy plug-and-play integration with JReviews, so it was a no-brainer for us to incorporate JReviews into our current site setup. For more information on the JoomlaLMS-JReviews integration read here: http://www.joomlalms.com/elearning/add-credibility-to-your-courses-with-jreviews-joomlalms-integration.html
JReviews allows our users to comment and rate each course they’ve taken. The reviews are publicly available for all current and potential users to read.
JReviews allows new users to view other user’s reviews attesting to their quality and value, and also to determine which courses are best suited for them. We use these reviews as valuable feedback: It allows us to better target our future offerings to what our users need, as well as identify problems users may be experiencing.
