Accessible, user-centric custom e-learning platform with video-streaming, automation, and document-generation features

The task at hand was to create an online courses platform that met the diverse requirements of learners and educators. The solution was supposed to not only offer a customizable functionality for tutors, but it also had to adapt to individual learning processes.

Introducing video streaming features posed technical challenges, requiring meticulous planning to ensure optimal performance on desktop and mobile devices. Before embarking on the e-learning development process, our developers had to ensure decent data exchange capacity, optimizing the platform’s load and speed for smooth performance.

Integrating document generation technologies demanded a delicate balance between flexibility, user-friendliness, and robust functionality. Furthermore, ensuring accessibility for users with varying needs and preferences added an extra layer of complexity to e-learning software development.


  1. Implement video streaming capabilities to allow educators to upload and deliver high-quality video content seamlessly as an integral part of their courses.
  2. Integrate easy-to-use development tools, allowing educators to effortlessly create and customize course content without requiring extensive coding knowledge.
  3. Create an e-learning website with a user-centric approach, adhering to accessibility standards like Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to ensure an inclusive and uncomplicated experience.
  4. Provide alternative formats for content consumption, including captions for videos, transcripts for audio content, and alternative text for images.
  5. Incorporate document generation technology for the automation of course materials, quizzes, assessments, and certificates, streamlining the content creation process.
  6. Ensure cross-platform compatibility by optimizing the software for various devices and platforms.
