Altura Learning decided to engage reinteractive’s user experience expert
Altura Learning’s strength was in 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.
Creating the rapid prototype resulted in a solid blueprint and base from which we could forecast more accurate project costings, which is essential when requesting approvals and expenditure from a board.Grant Ricker, Technology Director, Altura Learning
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.

Fixed, determined ranges are required before any approvals are granted, which we were able to estimate accurately.
After discovering reinteractive’s OpsCare® and CodeCare® services Altura realised that by commissioning one company to look after their operations, in addition to ongoing code maintenance, the risks of crossinterference would be minimised.
Altura Learning immediately engaged reinteractive to manage updates, monitor code quality, eradicate bugs, implement fixes and small feature requests, enabling them to focus on their core business objectives–producing quality training materials.
reinteractive’s operations team then scaled the staging environment and fired up the production environment giving them an operational product ready to go. reinteractive’s ongoing maintenance services, OpsCare and CodeCare were implemented to keep it up-to-date and as efficient as the day it was released.
