Business
challenge

Profiled online education is a highly demanded resource among mass users nowadays. We set out to add educational functionality to the existing Connector.org social platform. This ultimately enables business learners to find work and connect with potential employers in one place, right upon gathering enough knowledge on the working subject.

Technical
challenges

We needed to develop e-learning software features that would allow platform users to provide course curriculums and educational materials (including readings, videos, assignments, evaluation criteria, etc.) for online training in a free field of specialties. Another focus was also to implement interactive microblogging for learners and course leaders in terms of the new e-learning functionality. We inherited the baseline software’s source code to elaborate upon, PSD files for different views, and build and deployment instructions from the previous team working on the main Connector.org project.

Solution
delivered

We developed e-learning software functionality that offers respective capabilities for different user roles – curriculum owners (those who create curriculums), providers (those who offer readymade curriculums to the Connector.org community), leaders (those leading training courses), instructors (those providing live or recorded training sessions), learners (those taking courses), and team leaders (those leasing small groups of other learners). Each type of user gets the respective capabilities and interface elements to logically contribute to the organization of the overall educational process.
