Course Management System

We delivered an intuitive yet powerful course management functionality to enable providers easily create courses, utilize ready-to-use templates, enroll users in a lightning-fast manner, categorize courses, track and assess users’ progress, and adopt bult import capabilities to skyrocket the user experience.


Advanced Reporting Functionality

We implemented easy-to-configure dashboards with charts and graphs to streamline how admins and learners solicit at-a-glance evaluation reports of learning activities. The module also helps build customized reports across groups of learners, learning plans, certifications, and dates with various course and user-data fields.


Certificate Generation Feature

We implemented a certificate generation feature that automates creating multiple certificates for learners and saves tons of hours for admins to automatically issue them to participants upon completion. Besides, we made the social media certificate sharing barrier-free by integrating most common networks like LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.


User Flow Gamification

We delivered a gamification approach to boost learner engagement, knowledge retention and competency, healthy rivalry, and rockstar user experiences. Admins can now build customized learning workflows adjusting points, badges, and leaderboards, and create quizzes, contests, and give rewards.


Integration with Community Service

We integrated the company’s Community Service with the learning management system to introduce automated data synchronization and get learner’s data.


Integration with OpenEdx

We integrated the learning management system with Open Edx to create the entire LMS-based functionality. Admins can now manage the courses, track student’s progress, grade their achievements and measure the efficiency. Open Edx was designed with mid-to-large size audiences in mind which fits the needs of colleges, universities, companies, and corporations perfectly.
