The Overview

ChessMood is an LMS platform created for chess learning and teaching.
The owner Avetik Grigoryan is a chess GM and now is doing online courses for his students worldwide.

The Problem

A chess grand master Avetik Grigoryan has many students from different countries.
He was looking for an easy-to-use solution to deliver his knowledge directly to his students and of course to earn some money.

The traditional teaching system was not a choice taking into account several factors such as: distance, different time zones, etc. The already existed LMS solutions also were not a choice because they could not be customized for specific requirements. The LMS solution required to be easy-to-use system for end-users (students) who are not technical and do not have IT skills.

The Process

We started from data architecture and wireframing. Our team closely cooperated with endusers and the client to understand the full requirements and expectations.

Following the design trends and the UX standards the designers’ goal was to design the UI & UX of the system to be consistent with the client’s brand and adopted to LMS Moodle guidelines.

The programmers’ goal was to provide a final solution that can be intuitive to use and will consist of administrator dashboard, teacher dashboard, studentdashboard. This resulted a clickable prototype of the system and a final project plan.

Easy to use student dashboard. This dashboard is designed for student users who can buy the video and text courses, solve online assessments and tests, participate in webinars and live-stream classes and receive course completion certificate.

LMS e-commerce and the gamification To increase the teachers’ profit we have integrated different e-commerce tools such as marketing tools, bonus system, Payment integrations, membership plans, etc. The gamification is used nowadays to encourage students to learn. For this purpose, the AIST programmer’s team created moodcoin. Moodcoin is a currency created specifically forChessMood students, motivating them to collect and pay for the course with the earned moodcoins.
