SaaS PUBLISHING AND
Education / Publishing
The e-learning SaaS solution was developed for a publishing house to leverage their online sales channel; the platform allows the publishing house to sell content packages to their institutional clients, i.e. local government bodies and schools.
This e-learning platform was designed to improve the quality of work for teachers and students. The former gain easy access to ready-made sets of home assignments and tests to enrich their students educational experience. On top of that, teachers are provided with content and tools with which they can speedily generate their own exercises to better address the specific needs of their students. Since the system automatically checks the tests and generates scores, the teachers have much more time to pursue more creative activities.
Students in turn access their homework through their computer/laptop, solve the tasks assigned and submit them to the system. In doing so, they immerse in a multimedia-rich & interactive environment, which better fits into their lifestyle. It stimulates engagement and helps them achieve their learning goals and objectives more efficiently.
Moreover, the system provides valuable information for local educational authorities, head teachers and, last but not least, parents. Those with appropriate access rights granted can efficiently monitor progress and results recorded in the system.
