Looking for similar solution?

Learnetic is a global provider of digital education solutions. Several years ago it had to face the problem impacting the whole sector Adobe Flash had become an obsolete technology. It was also forced to prepare proper infrastructure to serve increasing numbers of users in peak-traffic moments in the field of education they were the morning, due to school classes, and the afternoon, due to students doing their homework.

Challenge

Content utilized by the e-learning platform, had been widely prepared in Adobe Flash and had to be converted to a new technology – a technology universal enough that people all over the world could use it. It was crucial to introduce a new product utilizing innovative solutions and to do it with no delay.

Yet the company did not have either the expertise, nor the equipment allowing for building a stable e-learning environment. In order to create a system matching the new business requirements Learnetic had to find a team of engineers ready to fully commit to designing, developing, but also maintaining the new application in the future.

Solution

The team assigned by Solwit to the project quickly developed a new e-learning environment based on cloud solutions which allows for adaptive learning, real-time analyses, and unlimited scalability.

Firstly, new versions of the editor and content player were designed. Secondly, based on Learnetic’s expertise Solwit prepared an ecosystem of cloud-based (SaaS) and mobile products, such as:

  • mAuthor (multi-platform content creation and authoring),
  • mCourser (a mobile oriented learning environment / LMS) ,
  • mInstructor (an innovative content creation tool for teachers, schools, etc.),
  • mLibro (an offline extension to the e-learning platform).

Finally, it has become possible to measure user interaction and analysis of student progress , due to the e-learning content being streamed to and processed by BigQuery.

 

The e-learning ecosystem created by Solwit is an E2E solution set for digital content creation, e-publishing, content import and distribution, and effective management of the learning process. It has been created to support publishing houses, schools, teachers, and students.

Result

Over the time of cooperation with Solwit Learnetic extended its operations to over 30 countries. Its e-learning platform has gained recognition among many major e-learning events worldwide. Its content is used by thousands of teachers and shared to hundreds of thousands of students every day. Thanks to its scalability rooted in cloud technologies its capabilities can be adjusted immediately which optimizes the cost compared to maintaining the infrastructure on a fixed level.

We have delivered a set of on-line applications using a computing cloud facilitating longevity, expansion, and rapid deployment of new functionalities. We have performed:

  • development of content authoring platform dedicated for enterprise customers;
  • development of content authoring and co-authoring platform for teachers, as well as individual creators;
  • a SaaS model suite of LMS applications allowing for the adaptive learning model, backed by Big Data solutions, including the digital gradebook and a lesson planner;
  • covering most of the functionalities with RESTful API allowing for further integration;

support and development of mobile and desktop applications integrating with the LMS backend for offline capability in iOS, Android, OSX, and Linux.

 

Learnetic is a leader among the e-learning systems providers worldwide.
