Business Challanges

In order to take GradReady Platform to the next level and make it future-proof, there were a few challenges the team had to address. GradReady was looking for a partner, which can help them bring the much-needed scalability, robustness, and performance to the platform, which targets students preparing for GAMSAT and UMAT.

Technical Challenges

Effective Learning Management System (LMS) development involves assigning essential roles, addressing performance issues due to server issues, ensuring user-friendly design, enabling scalability to support large numbers of concurrent users, integrating third-party services seamlessly, maintaining data integrity and security To keep the data safe and secure from random access and spam requests, and optimizing content delivery mechanisms.

Content Creation & Management in Rails

In Learning Management System (LMS) development, challenges in content creation and management include the need for robust quality control mechanisms, achieved through tools like ActiveAdmin or RailsAdmin. Maintaining consistency in data storage and retrieval demands the establishment of clear Rails models and a robust database schema. Intellectual property protection introduces challenges related to secure access controls, file encryption, and potential watermarking using tools like RMagick. Updating content and course materials within the Rails' MVC structure presents its own set of challenges.

User Experience (UX) & Interface (UI) in a Rails Environment

On the User Experience (UX) and Interface (UI) side, challenges involve ensuring intuitiveness in views through semantic templates and modules for a user-friendly interface. Personalization in Rails requires the creation of tailored functions, such as course recommendations, to enhance the overall user experience. Establishing effective feedback loops poses challenges in implementing mechanisms that facilitate easy user feedback submission, potentially using support-friendly tools like emails.
