A blended learning experience for millennials
Education portal supports omnichannel learning
An educational services company offering learning programs at 90 campuses across the USA and Europe faced a challenge, as many students were opting for online courses via two virtual campuses. The company’s product engineering department, which developed and maintained the learning portals and platforms wanted to replace the legacy portals.
Standardizing the learning experience
The company partnered with Infosys to synchronize the learning experience across real world and virtual classrooms. As a partner, we developed an interactive Web application with a rich user interface for better learning. In addition, our solution integrated the portal with a third-party learning platform and digital classroom aids such as a discussion board and assessment modules.
We streamlined the publishing of learning artifacts to minimize human intervention and migrated content from legacy portals to Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and used service-oriented architecture (SOA) to address emerging user needs. Our SOA framework supports diverse mobile platforms and devices, enables reuse of back-end services for other IT programs, provides extensibility across applications, and ensures scalability. Moreover, the SOA backbone enhances responsiveness of learning portals and facilitates integration of new features.
Improving learning outcomes
Today, more than 25,000 students, and 1,000 members of the faculty are using the Infosys adaptive learning platform. It has enhanced the learning experience by improving interaction between the learners and instructors. Intuitive navigation facilitated convenient consumption of content and improved outcomes of the Web-based instruction system across learning phases. Our unified coding system also helped reduce the code-base for the learning portals by 40 percent - thus minimizing the maintenance cost.
