Portals

An educational services company offering learning programs at 90 campuses across the US and Europe sought an education portal to support omnichannel learning.

Infosys developed an interactive Web application to synchronize learning across real-world and virtual classrooms. Our team integrated the portal with a third-party learning platform and digital classroom aids such as a discussion board and assessment modules.

Key Challenges

  • A majority of students opted for online courses via two virtual campuses
  • The company wanted to replace legacy portals to offer a blended learning experience.

The Solution

Intuitive content consumption improved learning outcomes of the Web-based instruction system

Infosys streamlined publishing of learning artifacts to minimize human intervention, and migrated content from legacy portals to Microsoft SharePoint.

We 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.

Technology drives learning needs and outcomes

  • SOA backbone enhances responsiveness of learning portals and facilitates integration of new features
  • Virtual classrooms powered by relevant technologies: .NET 3.5 Framework, C#, Knockout JS, jQuery / jQuery Ajax / JavaScript, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) 3.0.
