Caduceus: Custom Learning management system (lms)

Caduceus International Publishing Inc. is a leading provider of interactive health science curriculum. Dev IQ partnered with Caduceus to modernize their solution, replacing their desktop app with a fully custom LMS with a powerful mobile User Experience.

Challenge

Caduceus International Publishing Inc. (CIP Courses) designs and markets innovative online e-textbook course materials and exams to universities, professional schools, and health science centers worldwide.

The Caduceus application guides students through a semester’s worth of coursework by providing study guides, interactive flash cards, videos, quizzes and exams with real time progress updates and grading.

CIP’s target audience of students is a young demographic that consume content on mobile devices. Dev IQ was brought in to replace CIP’s existing desktop-focused platform with a modern, custom, responsive Learning Management System (LMS) to deliver content to students effectively, wherever they are.

Solution

Dev IQ’s first step was to fly CIP’s lead developer out to the Denver office to work side by side. CIP’s developer spent a week with the Dev IQ team, pair-coding and ramping up on the latest modern web practices. Next, the Dev IQ team divided up the requisite work. The front-end Angular and Bootstrap work stayed with Dev IQ’s experts while the CIP Courses team stayed within their comfort zone on the database and backend services. The two teams worked very closely through Dev IQ’s process to deliver working code regularly. Feedback was collected from beta users to make adjustments quickly throughout the development phase.

Features

  • Control sale, registration, and tracking for the CIP student base.
  • Fully immersive online medical courses including lectures, flash cards, matching exercises, and exams.
  • Integration with a 3rd party proctoring vendor allowing for proctored exams.
  • Export courses using the Common Cartridge for use with an outside LMS like Blackboard, Canvas, or Moodle.

 

Technology

  • SQL Server
  • Entity Framework
  • Angular
  • Bootstrap
  • Less
  • IIS Server

Result

Dev IQ and the CIP Courses team hit the target. The completely new, mobile-friendly solution was released to students and teachers for the Summer 2016 semester. Throughout the following year, student enrollment in the courses increased by 20%. The feedback from students was positive now that they could access course materials, study guides and take exams wherever they felt most comfortable on any of their devices. CIP Courses was transformed over a year to a scalable platform that doesn’t lock students to their desks.
