Operational e-learning platform

One year to build a fully operational e-learning platform with extensive-feedback-based UX

World map
2017 - ongoing

What have we delivered?

Fully operational e-learning platform for high school and university teachers. We took over the project from a supplier who couldn't handle its development and moved it all the way from an unresponsive knowledge repository to an extensive, user-friendly e-learning platform.

During the year-long process, a new UX-optimized interface with multiple functionalities was added, and the entire platform was moved to a new cloud environment. The Speednet team suggested some extra features, which allow the platform owner to use it as a marketing tool. The completed project received a State of California certificate allowing us to offer its digital services in all education centres in the state.

What was the challenge?

Carolina Biological Supply is a provider of science and math educational materials in the United States. In 2015, CBS launched the e-learning platform CarolinaScienceOnline.com to expand its digital products portfolio. Market research revealed significant usability problems and issues with UX/usage among teachers and health specialists.

When the platform’s original developer was unable to deal with the issues, Speednet was hired to simplify the platform and reconstruct its DNA in order to overwork the users’ feedback and make further expansion possible. The challenge was transforming a static knowledge repository into an intuitive and user-friendly e-learning platform while keeping the whole system running.

Speednet Tech Team

Working simultaneously in Poland and the US, remotely and on-site, the 14 members of our team had to remain highly flexible during the whole process. Frequent intercontinental travel, regular feedback sessions and two-week-sprints made for very tight conditions for our interdisciplinary team.

Client’s feedback

The platform is under development according to the client’s sales contracts, but SPEEDNET has delivered on every requirement so far. They balance a high level of quality and speed with their scalable team and careful management. Their proactiveness and dedication make for a solid partnership.
