Our Success Stories
An online public health program wants to expand
Our client wanted to expand their existing on-campus public health department to offer an additional fully-online track as well as convert their core track to a dual-delivery program. We worked with the 24 faculty to train them on the pedagogical and technical skills to be comfortable building courses in Open edX®. We also consulted with the department to design a communication, onboarding, and iterative improvement plan to serve these new online students. This client was able to massively expand their program by 10x in part by being able to serve students with this flexible model.
A high-tech educator wants to build hands-on skills
Our client wanted to develop hands-on, skills-based courses in the fields of automation, IoT, Python, and Data Science. We designed and worked with their faculty to build a program that combined self-paced training, hands-on labs, and an online community for support and troubleshooting. Students were able to develop skills in Raspberry Pi, IoT sensors, smart lighting, and more. For their capstone project, students were able to build a working smart sprinkler system that would adjust watering based on temperature, humidity and the future forecast. We were also able to leverage our offshore team to efficiently build a catalog of skill-specific python and data science exercises. And using a combination of open-source and 3rd party integrations with Open edX® we were able to provide the students with automated feedback and instant grades.
A global nonprofit wants to reach their stakeholders across the world
Our client had created and presented a highly successful live training program, but their audience was global and the trainers’ time was limited. We supported the client in building an asynchronous course that would still create spaces for interaction, reflection, and application of course material. Our team was able to create new exercises that would mimic the traditional, live group discussions into interactive, personalized activities for the scalable, asynchronous version of the course. With a mixture of custom case-based activities, third-party and native edX tools, we were able to create practical and engaging exercises in each module. We’ve also been able to smoothly deliver this client’s courses in multiple languages using Open edX®’s cohort feature and some custom x-block development.
