Ritter Academy is an online training portal specializing in providing courses on e-discovery and e-security. The unique idea of Ritter academy is that their courses are created using mind maps.
What they require was to create an online portal with e-commerce facility in the front-end and a robust Learning Management System in the backend. Both the systems required to have a Single Sign-On (SSO) and the integration needed to be transparent/ seamless to the user. All this was required to be done in a matter of a few weeks and the cost of development was to be kept in check.
BlueApple created the solution using multiple open source technologies by keeping the cost of development and hosting low. A robust and secure solution was created with all the functionality of a CMS and e-commerce shopping cart for the user to browse and subscribe the course and then going to the LMS and taking the course. All this movement was completely seamless and a thorough tracking of the course usage happened at the backend LMS. An automated PDF certificate was issued to the user on successful completions of the course.
For the continuity of the services, a robust backup and mirroring system was set up on the server with multiple backups available in case of failure.
