Learning Plug-in

About Solution

EffectiveSoft has developed an Internet Explorer Learning Plug-in for an online learning platform. The online learning platform is intended for higher educational institutions and allows sorting students into groups by their learning dispositions. Data on how students learn are then used to provide proper content for them. The Learning Plug-in allows students to search for appropriate educational articles by suitable courses or by keywords. Teachers and students can rate the articles according to the content quality, compatibility for learning, and reliability of common facts; it is also possible to share comments. All entered data are stored to the database and are available for further use.
