Case Study for Let’s Go to Class
The client was looking for an easy-to-use web-based LMS solution to help her organization to improve the learning process. The team at AIST organized inquiry to check out what functionalities are required for the platform. The AIST team designed and developed the LMS platform based on research, A/B testing and following the latest e-learning technology trends
A Mandarin teacher Janice Ling was using TalentLMS for e-learning purposes. However, she was not happy with that solution. While using TalnetLMS she faced some problems such as branding, not intuitive and not user-friendly design, etc. In order to support the teaching and learning process, she decided to have her own LMS system, that can be used for other teachers as well. The solution required to have an intuitive and user-friendly design, to follow LMS guidelines and be easily adjustable to new technologies.
In order to manage the process of design & development of the web-based Learning Management System, the AIST management decided to use the ADDIE Model (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation). During The Analysis part, the questionnaires were distributed to 30 teachers. This process determined what facilities are required to be used on the E-learning platform. Based on this the data architecture and wireframing were developed. The next step was the UI & UX design. The designers’ team developed a prototype for A/B testing. During the development process following Moodle guidelines, developers used PHP programming language for external purposes. The demo and final versions of the web-based LMS demonstrated to end-users. The demo version has been updated, finalized and published. The video manuals had been prepared on how to use the system.
Designers’ team prepared clickable prototypes for A/B testing. After the test process designers continued working on the most likable design. The development team thoroughly examined Moodle LMS standards and following guidelines build the back-end architecture using PHP programming language. The final solution is a web-based LMS containing all necessary tools for e-learning methods so that courses can be accessed anytime & anywhere to support the learning process. The web-based LMS consists of an administrator dashboard, teacher dashboard, and learner dashboard. The website usage does not require any technical (IT) skills from the users.

The Students are able to register for live-stream classes, download course materials (video and text files), participate in discussion forums, do assessments, etc. In other words, students have infinite access to course materials.
The Teacher or instructor dashboard is created specifically for instructors. The Instructor can easily upload course materials such as text files (MS office), video files, syllabus, etc., can organize live-streaming classes in online classrooms, prepare assessment and quizzes and provide course completion certificate.
