Learning Management System Winchster University

An educational consultancy company in the UK deploys a sophisticated bespoke e-learning platform at Winchester University.


About Client

Our client provides professional consultancy to implement effective and efficient practices across secondary, vocational, and further and higher education sectors both in the UK and internationally. They use educational platforms such as e-learning software and blended learning to achieve results for their customers.


The Challenge

The Faculty of Arts at Winchester University had been using an old deployment of Moodle as its learning management system. They found it very cumbersome to author interactive content and wasted several hours every day struggling with the inefficiencies of the system.


The Solution

GoodCore developed an end-to-end bespoke Learning Management System (LMS) with integrated functionality for university management, administrators, teachers, and students.

We built a powerful content authoring tool (a desktop-based installable application) for educators to design interactive learning material using an intuitive point-and-click interface. Traditionally, designing interactive content requires Flash programming skills but with the application we designed, any educator familiar with the common office software packages could create and publish interactive content.

We developed a web portal for the students where they could access their course material, view learning activities, and sit in exams published by faculty administrators. The exam viewer offered a highly interactive environment to students and embedded rich media including images, sounds, and videos.

We developed a highly sophisticated marking engine that implemented marking rules for question types such as multiple-choice and exact response as well as test types such as matching type and cloze and produced detailed results for the faculty.


The Impact

Implementing a bespoke LMS made the job for educators and faculty administrators a lot easier and offered a rich online environment for the students to engage in learning activities.
