The company faced several challenges while offering courses for students.
- The existing web platform was not interactive or intuitive
- Absence of a mobile platform to facilitate learning
- The need to reduce time and effort involved in creating learning content
- Keeping track of courses and participants was cumbersome
QBurst developed a solution that uses game mechanics to create self-paced learning content and interfaces. The solution comprises a full-fledged eCommerce bookstore with categorizations based on university, grade, and topic. A secure offline player (for web and mobile) provides easy access to purchased books, videos, and assessments. User have the flexibility to manage course completion schedule along with sync option to show pre/post/summative assessment. The platform also includes an online forum which connects users to subject matter experts and student groups.
We successfully ported components of the existing learning system into the new platform. Key components of the solution are:
eBooks (PDF documents of study material)
Assessments (online tests and assessments of each subject/module)
Digital content (stream video and audio content from a third-party website)
