We developed a custom e-learning application for a local organization. Basically the e-Leaning platform is divided into two major modules:
The platform requires students to pay for subscriptions through bank or Mpesa and they are automatically assigned a virtual learning course description, content and duration. After their subscription expires, they are logged out to renew it.
This offered the lecturers and students a virtual classroom environment where they share learning materials, lecturers post assignments and students submit finished assignments.
