Private learning experience – a great benefit of micro learning platforms

If you have sensitive and private data as part of the learning material explored in the course, you can choose a page or pages that should be private for specific groups of users and which should remain visible to all users.  

Tracking the learning progress

Attractive animated features show at which stage the learner is. That is possible by marking the phases and quizzes that are successfully finished. 

Users have good visual and contextual orientation on how many phases they need to go through to finish the course and at any time they can take a break and return to the course when available again. This is also a necessary feature for micro learning platforms.

Email reminders 

Users receive email notifications about the progress and smart learning reminders delivered to the inbox. This feature helps them to stay in the loop with the course and learning phases.  

Knowledge Testing: Quizzes

Quizzes are quick tests for learners to assess whether they are ready to move forward or should go back to a particular learning section.  

knowledge testing in micro learning platforms

After each learning phase, users take a quiz to test their knowledge. Users can see the results as percentages for the correct answers. They can also receive a medal as a reward according to results.

  • The bronze medal for 80% of correct answers
  • The silver for more than 90%
  • The gold medal when all answers are correct (100%)

Badges as symbols of accomplishments 

Learners receive badges, which hold motivational empowerment, for their results. These are awards and symbols of their accomplishments.

Thus, when a learner receives two silver medals on the first try, he receives the appropriate award presented in a badge that shows his great results.

Certificate as a proof of a successfully finished course

Learners receive certificates in PDF format at the end of the successfully finished course. The certificate contains all scores and achievements acquired during the course. Users can also easily access and download certificates from their profiles. 

Technology behind EDeL platform

We developed the platform on Symfony PHP and AngularJS frameworks, which are the state of the art technologies providing ultimate flexibility, speed and reliability. Plus, a great choice for building and maintaining micro learning platforms.

The platform is in a structure of an API-Centric application. In other words, APIs enable easy integration with third-party systems or expansions in future updates.

We developed the features and functionalists to support rich media and to be easily customizable.

Maps can have various shapes with colour coded phases and a fully branded user interface. Each map can feature unique iconography related to the knowledge acquired on the course.

Our approach to design and development is always on providing intuitive user journeys and good UX.

All together, good UX and user journeys make different types of content easily accessible, uncluttered. On top of all – organized to match the user’s intention.
