eLearning Solutions for the Modern World
Traditionally, businesses and educational facilities were forced rely on textbooks and classrooms to deliver their course material. This required teachers and instructors to be present at all times, which further required many manual procedures to manage the learning process and track progress. Fortunately, there is a better way to do it.
In the modern world – eLearning has become increasingly popular thanks to the flexibility, efficiencies, and cost savings offered by digital learning solutions. Students & attendees can now easily get their education from anywhere at any time, while managers & instructors can better keep track of learning performance while making adjustments as needed.
eLearning Solutions Types
All eLearning solutions generally fall into two broad categories, and will usually contain elements of both.
This will be determined in the scope and design phase of your project.
Learning Management Systems (LMS)
A Learning Management System (or LMS) lets you create, distribute, and track educational materials and their usage across your entire user base. These can range from relatively simple systems, such as a small business with only a few sales training courses, to immensely powerful enterprise-level systems for handling globally accessible education programmes with advanced analytics features.
eLearning Authoring Tools
eLearning Authoring Tools let you create educational / training content, and publish it in a suitable format. This can include universal formats such as PDF or HTML, to eLearning specific formatting standards such as SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model) or xAPI (eXperience Application Programming Interface, formerly known as Tin Can).
Examples of eLearning Implementations
Most projects will include some elements of both Learning Management Systems (LMS) and eLearning Authoring Tools. This is determined in the scope and design phase of your project.
eLearning Mobile Applications
We will build a customized mobile app for your eLearning use case. Naturally we can handle both iOS and Android apps. We can also integrate eLearning functionality into an existing mobile app.
eLearning Responsive Web Applications
We will build a web application for your eLearning case that will automatically adjust itself based on your user’s screen. This means your application can be used in any web browser (including mobile).
Customized Training & Education Modules
If you already have a working LMS, or simply need to add one (or a few) eLearning course(s) to your offering – we can help you extend / integrate a custom eLearning module for your organization.
System Updates, Customization, & Extensions
We will help you upgrade and/or customize your existing eLearning system. You can add or expand any feature or capability you desire, and then seamlessly integrate everything into your main systems.
We support the “Big 3” eLearning LMS platforms

Our intelligent system allows students to enter the whole solution step-by-step, and then automatically provides feedback like a human teacher would. Right now this solution is being used by several leading US Universities, and new versions are currently under active development.

Original University LMS
We developed a custom Learning Management System (LMS) for a leading Russian university. In their case, it was the faster and less expensive option compared to licensing and customizing Blackboard – since the LMS had to satisfy local regulatory requirements as well as the university’s wishes.
The LMS enabled the university to better manage the entire learning process for local students, as well offering distance learning opportunities. This increased the number of students attending the university several times over.
What features can be included in your eLearning solution?
Generally speaking just about any feature can be included in your eLearning solution provided enough time and resources. In practice, there are certain features that are more commonly requested than others – plus there are certain specialties we offer for any eLearning solution.
Here are the most popular requests we get from our eLearning clients:
Unlimited Courses & Modules
Naturally, many organizations need eLearning solutions that can expand with their training & educative needs. Thus, we build solutions that can help design, build, and manage entire curriculums.
Special Formatting for STEM Fields
STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) often require special formatting to make calculations and describe functions. Most of which is not easily available on a standard keyboard.
Advanced Mathematical Functions
Higher level math and science course often require the ability to make very complex calculations, while presenting all the “working out” notation in an acceptable format for evaluation and publication.
Communication & Collaboration Tools
This can include any form of text messaging, voice calling, or video conferencing tool – integrated seamlessly into your eLearning system to provide multiple communication options for students & teachers.
All Forms of Rich Media
This includes videos & motion graphics, as well as audio such as podcasts & other sound files. Being able to offer multiple types of content is generally a much sought after feature in most cases.
Many organizations have found success in improving learning outcomes by employing gamification techniques. This helps make the educational experience more fun for students, while rewarding progress.
Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT)
Instead of relying on live instructors and teachers to manage your courses or classes, you can use a virtual instructor to handle extra attendees or otherwise offer extra classes as needed.
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
Make your eLearning offering available to everyone at any time. All your users have to do is signup and login, and they will have access to your entire curriculum in an instant.
Social & Private Forums
Collaboration and discussions are essential to achieving the best learning outcomes. We offer a multitude of communication options so you can connect students and teachers more easily.
Advanced Behavioral Analytics
This goes beyond “standard” analytics to measure attendance and completion rates, diving deeper into the psychology of your user base, to gain more insights throughout the educational experience.
Instant Feedback & Polling
Feedback is essential for ensuring a smooth learning process and achieving the best educational outcomes. Therefore we can offer a variety of feedback and polling options to help achieve this.
Deep System Integration
If you are an organization with a well-established IT system, then it may make more sense to integrate any new solution into your existing systems, rather than running multiple separate platforms.
