Altura Learning is an education company based in Sydney that produces educational video programs for aged care providers in Australia and the United Kingdom.
Traditionally, Altura Learning’s video programs were available to members via satellite TV, DVD and an online Learning Management System (LMS).
But the international market already had multiple Learning Management Systems that Altura Learning found hard to displace. Altura Learning’s strength was their content and so they decided to build a portal allowing larger international providers to access the training materials without worrying about which LMS they used.
Altura Learning had been dealing with offshore developers, but due to complexities, they quickly realised that a remote Australian team who could commit to the project and offer faster responses to handling bugs and development issues, would be far better suited.
Altura Learning decided to engage reinteractive’s User Experience (UX) expert who created wireframes and then translated them into a highly interactive rapid prototype. Working closely with Altura Learning enabled her to identify issues with, and improve key areas of the user journey. In just one week, a fully clickable prototype of the system was ready to be presented to the Altura Learning board members for approval to build the portal.
The project then moved into the development phase which was initially estimated at 7 - 9 weeks. By using the interactive prototype as a base and implementing reinteractive’s structured development process, the project was delivered in just seven weeks - including one week of front-end development.
