Innovating personal development by focussing on learning anything in 10 minutes a day.
Lifelong learning is a prerequisite in today’s world and E-learning is rapidly becoming one of the most important factors in the way people develop themselves. Many companies offer their employees e-learning platforms as part of the employee benefits. Only 8 to 12% of all these e-learning programs are being completed. Online Academy offers a digital platform that focusses on learning by spending only 5-10 minutes a day to solve this challenge.
Learn anything in 10 minutes a day
The goal of Online Academy is to increase the effectiveness of e-learning. By focussing on only spending 5-10 minutes a day, an e-learning user can absorb and remember the material better with less effort. Everybody can spend 5-10 minutes a day on learning. Within the application users are incentivised to continue learning. Smart recommendations, reminders and positive feedback are used continuously to ensure users complete their learning journeys. The results are impressive: the completion rates for e-learning through Online Academy are up to 5 times higher than competing products.
Using the lean start-up model, Online Academy was rapidly developed and launched into the market. By getting early user feedback and rapidly iterating the application it was possible to focus on the features that really matter. This methodology has ensured rapid growth. Where the platform started with only a small set of customers and courses in the portfolio, today it’s actively used by more than 100 companies and the portfolio has grown to offer over 250 courses in multiple languages.
“Working with a partner that truly understands agile development, was very important for us as a corporate start-up. With Evident we are able to accelerate while building a robust platform”
Powering rapid iterations
Rapidly iterating an application also required the necessary way of working and technical infrastructure to support it. Using agile scrum and a DevOps approach with the platform hosted on Microsoft Azure has allowed Evident and Online Academy to continuously iterate and scale the platform to ensure the users have a great customer experience.
Online Academy is an internal start-up funded by NCOI Group. Online Academy combines the best of both worlds: the flexibility of a start-up and the knowledge and financial stability of a large corporate.
