The client is a leading US university established in the 19th century focused on Medical programs and research.

The university has thousands of on campus and online students enrolled in its numerous academic, clinical and advanced research programs.

Business Objective

The client had an existing Computer Learning Program (CLP) developed several years ago as a database-forms solution. Soon with its ever growing number of students enrolling and courses being offered, the university found that solution to be non-scalable, as it had very limited features and no customization options.

The Chetu team's objective was to develop this application as a new web-based solution, incorporating all missing features. The application would include a full business life cycle designed to cover both course and training needs. The application would provide student access to course related materials and support student enrollment and evaluations. For university administrators, the application would give them access to modules where they could manage the courses offered, enrollment details, course material, student information, test results and other administrative information.

Solution From Chetu

E-Learning Software Solutions

Armed with its vast experience developing e-Learning solutions, Chetu worked hand in hand with the client to design a web based application using the latest technologies.

Special attention was given to make sure that the platform not only addressed the current needs of the client, but was scalable and had the necessary flexibility to support future enhancements.

The application featured a separate module for easy management of course details, and provided course administrators the ability of publishing this information online. The reporting module also allowed course administrators to generate various reports according to their needs.

Students could access this online platform to complete their course registration, online tests, retrieve scores and credit details, enrollment and even make payments.

Results Delivered

Chetu delivered a complete configurable and scalable e-Learning portal solution within 3 months, and with total operational cost savings of up to 70% . With their new web-based e-Learning platform, the client was able to easily manage all the institution's courses and generate student and course related reports in real time. This solution led to the removal of most of the old manual processes, saving the university time and money. The Chetu team has continued to support this platform with any new changes and enhancements. The client was so satisfied with the delivered results it has already enlisted Chetu for all new features to be added.
