Brainstud: An advanced E-Learning environment with lightning speed
Some companies know exactly what they want and what it should look like. We know how to implement that into an interactive E-Learning platform that’s easily expandable.
Ronald, Roland and Robin worked on this project
The company Brainstud understands dynamic training. They design, develop and implement online learning programs for various clients. Clients like other organisations, but also trainers and educational institutions. Brainstud has its own team of developers in-house, whom we support with our expertise.
Plenty of knowledge in-house
Brainstud has developed an extensive CMS for the backend. All different educational programs can be set up there. For example, an educator simply adds a new subject, containing different chapters. Those chapters consist of text, images, videos, widgets, questions and even exams. Extremely versatile content, in which a lot of interaction is possible.
Our expertise adds value
When it comes to interaction, the speed of your application becomes important. For example, imagine that you have to drag a question in the correct order, but you have to wait 10 seconds every time you change that order for the page to reload. Obviously your end user will quit on you in no time. Brainstud called us to make that frontend feel as smooth as possible for the users. With the help of React we have built a system that is as dynamic as possible, without compromising on ease of use.
Benefits of React for this project:
- The web application is fast and efficient
- Many possibilities for interactivity
- Framework is scalable
- It is relatively easy to quickly add new or additional frontends
A seamless collaboration
Brainstud is very clear about what their products should look like. They supply the designs, have the content and know exactly how it all should work. We are responsible for the technical architecture. We extend this collaboration in everything, both in the communication between both of our teams of developers and the communication between the front-end and back-end of the application.
At Brainstud we mainly provide manpower; we focus on production. The fact that the front-end is built in React gives us the opportunity to work very efficiently and we get a lot done in a relatively short time. Delivering good work quickly in React is one of our specialties and that is one of the reasons why Brainstud likes to work with us. So yes, we are mainly the extra set of hands at the keyboard, but with clever minds who code exactly at the pace Brainstud has in mind.
Brainstud has developed a large number of E-Learnings for a large number of companies. They have asked us to build a virtual library where companies or educational institutions can display their courses. In this way, students choose a course themselves and determine their personal learning route and learning pace. This way, an end user can see at a glance which lessons are available. Currently we are working to broaden and deepen the online catalog. By adding an extensive account system, progress of students is well tracked. In addition, we have added payment modules, so that trainers can also choose to place certain components behind a paywall. After payment via the checkout module, a student will have access to a specific course automatically.
We didn't stop at increasing the ease of use for students; we have also built an extensive module for the teacher. This allows lecturers to gain much better insight into the progress of their students. They’ll see who is participating in their course, what they have done, how far they are in the learning process and possibly even what grades have been achieved. Brainstud has big dreams and continues to innovate.
