Our main task was to build and implement an e-learning system for university students. For the client, it was crucial that the platform had the following functionalities:
Our tasks in the project:
A.Creation of remote education software
B.The role of the system was also to run and process data to generate educational reports with student grades (including integration with the analytical system)
C. Building an educational platform with access to it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
1- The client's main challenge was to create a remote education system that would be able to maintain high retention of students to the next courses in a given curriculum. It was crucial for the client that the students, despite starting remote education, were able to complete the program
2- Combining work with education - for many students, the only possibility to attend classes was distance learning. Due to their professional obligations, students were not able to fully participate in classes, physically at the university
1-Before starting work, it was crucial for us to understand the needs of students and academic teachers - We conducted an extended business analysis workshop with the client, thanks to which we eliminated redundant, unnecessary activities
2-Building an educational system enabling learning 24/7
3-Adding the required functionalists to the platform so as to provide the student with the best possible conditions for distance learning
4-Application of the concept of work based on synergy - We have thoroughly understood the client's problem and showed that we are a team that is able to help in very difficult conditions
5-Flexible approach to the client - Focus on remote work and work at the client's premises only in the case of initial analytical work on complex topics

In the project, we used technologies such as:
1.The client was very satisfied with the e-learning platform that was created
