We would like the platform’s design to fall in line with the Co-Innovate branding, which will include colours, and also the use of our logo and partner logos.

Platform Development

We are trying to create a branded online social learning platform where users can do the following:

  • Create profiles
  • Set up groups
  • Upload their images, documents, and video files as part of their profile/portfolio
  • Communicate with other users through the forum, direct messaging
  • Access learning material through articles, online courses, quizzes (multimedia files)
  • Be awarded badges/certificates on completion of courses
  • Invite users outside of the community to view their work and profile
  • See up and coming events/activities
  • Log into the platform via their LinkedIn or Facebook profiles
  • Log into their platform using any device
  • Can resent their password/login details of they forget it

We need a platform which allows the administration team to do the following:

  • Invite potential users to join the platform
  • Track who is engaging with the courses and the general site (analytics)
  • Create courses, quizzes using multimedia
  • Communicate to users via the platform (individually and as a group)

Project Timescales and Considerations:

  • We need the platform customised and ready by August 25th 2017. Thereafter we will upload content on the platform and invite users to join late September.
