As the sole vendor engaged in the education portal development, Iflexion provided the full stack of software development services, including requirements elaboration, tech consulting, portal design and implementation, as well as QA, followed by the solution’s further enhancement and support.
Our team selected the Moodle e-learning platform as the solution’s basis and PHP as the fundamental technology for the portal’s development.
An Open Source platform, Moodle is well-known for its scalability; it enables developers to build robust solutions for both online and offline learning. The PHP-based portal developed on top of Moodle handles SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) compliant online learning objects – quizzes, online courses, tests, assignments, etc.
The developed solution offers various features to three major groups of users, including learning instructors, system administrators and newcomers.
The solution also provides reporting features, enabling learning managers to obtain comprehensive insights into employees’ progress. Managers can also see courses that trainees’ registered for and control if they opted in or out, attended or missed a particular training session, passed or failed in order to effectively track employees’ results.
Smooth Knowledge Transfer to PayPal’s Team
As soon as Iflexion’s team completed the education portal development, the Customer came up with the request to transfer the project knowledge to the PayPal’s internal team for ongoing system support. The major challenge was to ensure smooth integration of the solution into the Customer’s existing IT infrastructure and establish seamless access of the geographically scattered employees to the project knowledge base. Iflexion organized a series of online video conferences to ensure knowledge transfer without hindering PayPal’s core business processes. In 2 months, the company’s personnel were fully capable of supporting the delivered solution without Iflexion’s assistance.
