Web Development for an Education System with TYPO3
New website consists of a number of portals dedicated to particular markets of Central and Eastern Europe. New web is designed for different groups of users. When registering, person chooses his role: student or lecturer. Depending on the profile, he has access to educational materials, supplementary courses etc. Thanks to integration with the corporate identity management system (SSO), user data is registered in all Pearson applications.
International publishing company and leader in the education industry, Pearson, started working with us at the beginning of 2017. After going through rebranding, client needed a new website and high quality software that would enable further digitalization of their services and products.
The client wanted to create a special form for user registration (both students and teachers) and to increase user experience (UX) on new site. The best system that met their expectations turned out to be the flexible and secure enterprise-class Content Management System - TYPO3.
New website consists of a number of portals dedicated to particular markets of Central and Eastern Europe. We helped recreate some features from the old site and integrate the new one with Pearson external systems. New web is designed for different groups of users. When registering, person chooses his role: student or lecturer. Depending on the profile, he has access to educational materials, core curricula, supplementary courses and etc. Additionally, he can sign up for conferences and other meetings (up to now several dozens of such events already took place and thousands of participants attended). In addition, the organizers can use the panel to manage the attendance list, agenda, etc. which is a great feature.
- Integration of users' logins between systems (SSO)
- Data migration from the old site
- A new graphic concept and the preparation of UX functional mock-ups in cooperation with the Crafton agency
- Integration with external Pearson systems: portals, a mobile application and a sales platform
- Creation of the Pearson products catalog: study materials, training courses and videos, etc.
- A panel for managing conferences from the client's CMS level, but also in a personalized user profile
- Search engine based on the Apache Solr
The Pearson.pl website was released in December of 2017 and it is further developed. We launched a platform in 3 language versions, with attractive graphics and functionalities, tailored to the needs of various groups of recipients. Thanks to the integration with the corporate identity management system, user data is registered in all Pearson applications. Pearson editors can edit the content and photos on the website by themselves, without the support of our programmers. Thanks to transparent project management in Scrum, client could control the costs and time for specific tasks.
Our high rated cooperation is described on website Clutch.co. Our continued work is focused on the further development of Pearson.pl portal and webs for foreign markets.
