FLOW FLUENCY

HELPING THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS ACHIEVE FLUENCY THROUGH AN ONLINE LEARNING PLATFORM

Client

Flow Reading Fluency helps to create confident young readers and solve the problem of students needing 1:1 reading intervention with an online, research-backed platform designed for self-paced, independent learning. 

 

Challenge

Flow Fluency wanted our help to create their web-based subscription platform on Moodle, the free and open-source LMS. One of the biggest challenges was to integrate their large body of learning materials (videos, audio, quizzes etc.) with Moodle. The LMS came with a number of technological and creative limitations, such as payment and media integrations, which required us to brainstorm custom solutions to these hurdles.

Strategy

After conducting our discovery and aligning content and business requirements, the first version of prototypes and designs were presented and quickly approved by Flow Fluency. We then added layers of additional platform functionality, including login and account capabilities for teachers, students, and eventually parents. During this time, we also created custom workarounds and plugins to account for the limitations of the Moodle LMS.

Solutions

Technologies
  • AWS
  • Stripe
  • Apache
  • PHP
  • MySQL
  • Moodle
  • WebRTC
  • jQuery
  • Select2
  • SCSS
  • Mustache
  • Grunt
  • JS

From a technology standpoint, there was a lot of custom work that had to be done, including reworking a large majority of the PHP and JavaScript code. We pushed the boundaries of what Moodle was capable of providing out of the box, and when we encountered a limitation, we had to build a custom solution. This was particularly evident when finding solutions to improve audio and video upload speeds, as well as implementing video tracking and the general design video player.

 

Results

The project was successfully completed in twelve months and launched in 2020. In the first year of being live, it gained more than 2000 regular users. Now, at the height of the school year, Flow Fluency helps nearly 3,000 students learn and improve their fluency.

 

Review

“We were glad to help Melissa with her startup. It was great to work on a project that was focused on real educational benefits, and it turned out to be extremely relevant in the midst of the pandemic. It was very interesting to dive into her educational programs, which she has been developing for many years, and to translate the results of her hard work in the final product which could be used by thousands around the world!“
