Educational and informative platform for IT resources

Web academy is an educational and informative platform used by applicants, students and lecturers.

About

Web Academy was created as a natural extension of our desire to develop the IT industry in Bulgaria.

BGO Software built from scratch a website that best matched the purpose of our Web Academy project. With the technology used, we could personalize the platform and add various functionalities for easier access and navigation across different sections.

With our effective free educational programs and courses, we give a chance to anyone who wants to start a successful career in the IT field. We want to enable the ones interested in the sector to qualify as programmers, software developers, testers, front-end developers, QA’s and to embrace the opportunities which the industry offers.

What guarantees that our students will gain knowledge and skills in the style of best practices is the fact that true professionals working at BGO Software stay behind Web Academy.

Involvement

Project Management Methodology

Agile, SCRUM

Scrum is one of the most popular Agile methodologies. It is an adaptive, iterative, fast, flexible, and effective methodology designed to deliver significant value quickly and throughout a project. Scrum ensures transparency in communication and creates an environment of collective accountability and continuous progress. The Scrum framework is structured in such a way that it supports product and service development in all types of industries and in any type of project, irrespective of its complexity.

Challenge

One of the most challenging aspects was to create an attractive design that combined different concepts but simultaneously preserved a high level of usability. Along with the website, we have developed and further customized a Learning Management System, allowing Web Academy’s users access to numerous online courses.

 

Solution

BGO used the most innovative approaches and technologies in order to establish functional infrastructure in the classrooms. We integrated an LTSP system which enables lecturers to monitor the work and progress of students, allows them to share files with each other and puts all students on equal terms as they all share the same machine.

We integrated a CMS (Content Management System) and a fully functional system to solve and evaluate electronic tests as well as other projects, files, etc. which have been submitted online. The addition of plenty of features allows users to benefit from fast search options, filtering, and paging. For quicker and better communication, users can also make a complaint or contact a lecturer via a specially integrated button. There is also a news-section to keep readers informed about the progress of the academies.

Results

Our large-scale initiative aims to enable those who are interested in the IT sector to qualify and retrain as computer professionals with diverse backgrounds. Our Web Academy LMS and web portal makes it possible for people to develop as IT professionals and to reach and fulfill their professional aspirations without having to leave their native places.
