SharePoint-based Learning Management System Development
After we have created a well-known PHP/MySQL LMS product Belitsoft was challenged with the order to design a sophisticated eLearning software using the Microsoft SharePoint as the development platform.
- Effort: 800 man-months, ongoing
Belitsoft developers created a learning management system that is used by over 5 million people all over the globe. It’s been adopted by organizations like Florida Department of Agriculture, Pabst Brewing and JFK School of Business at Harvard.
Belitsoft was contacted by an eLearning startup co-founded by a Dane and an American.
The customer wanted to create a learning management system integrated with the popular Sharepoint platform. It had to be feature-rich yet easy to use for non-technical people.
The customer has chosen us for a number of reasons:
- Over 100 completed eLearning projects, show our domain expertise;
- Microsoft Gold application partner status demonstrating our knowledge of MS ecosystem;
- Competitive pricing;
The project had a very broad scope. Together with our client’s expertise in IT and management, it made a Dedicated Team model the logical choice. The developers worked using Agile approach, splitting the work into 3-week sprints. The team included a project manager on our side and a product owner from our client.
The resulting system turned out to be a massive learning platform. Some of the most popular features include:
- Analytics with Power BI
- Quiz builder
- SCORM/AICC player
- Learning module builder
- Webinar support
Later on, the LMS got integrated with Office 365 and Skype for Business for improved collaboration and blended learning processes. It also received many social functions.
We are still working on this project, improving and expanding it, as the number of installations constantly grows. The system currently has over 5 million users in businesses, governmental organizations and educational institutions.
