Project Proposal
National Educators Institute
Learning Management System & Website

The National Educators Institute (NEI) requires a website and LMS to offer online learning resources as part of their service offering to members. This requires the building and maintaining of a Learning Management System (LMS) and accompanying website, the integration of these with an existing Authorize.Net payment gateway, and third-party membership service.

Requirements

The NEI have specified the use of the Moodle Platform to facilitate its LMS requirements. The NEI has provided a list of requisite functionality that the LMS must provide. Those functions not provided by the platform in its default state should be provided with the addition of plugins readily available. The NEI requires the hosting, maintenance and administration of the LMS and accompanying website.

From the requirements provided, we have outlined the structure of an online application built to provide support of NEI’s primary objectives, whilst ensuring compatibility with future feature requirements and integration demands.

In addition to the primary specification, we outline a variety of administrative and technical support services with which we can ensure the NEI’s technical requirements are met. This outlines an ongoing technical relationship in support of the product and related services.

1. Provide a centralized entity for the professional learning and conversations of Bermuda’s public and private school educators, counselors and mentors
Creating a dedicated social network for public and private educators which integrates directly into a learning management system will present the best opportunity to meet this goal.

2. Provide a platform for professional development, research, social and emotional support

A Social Networking Platform integrated into the Learning Management System facilitates the progression towards course goals in the context of a social setting, allowing educators, counselors and mentors to communicate with one another, share resources, view and share their progress and work together on collaborative research projects.

3. Provide an interface between the NEI and the general public and their market

An informational site providing a place for the NEI to market their message/brand to the general public as well as promote their offerings to their market. A place to post information about events, special offers or anything else intended for wider distribution.
