World’s Largest EdTech Platform for Teachers

Centa is a globally recognized accreditation body for teachers. It is the world’s largest online platform for teachers, helping them upskill and explore limitless opportunities in the teaching world. The platform offers various resources for learning, including self-paced courses, certifications, live training, expert masterclasses, and webinars.

With the goal to transform the education sector, the organization partnered with Ampcome. We perceived their idea and created a strategic development roadmap that led to their resounding success. At present the platform connects over 1.5 million teachers across 100,000 schools in more than 70 countries. The platform fosters a vibrant community where educators could share resources, collaborate, and enhance their teaching methods.

This case study explores our journey to build the world's largest EdTech platform.


Project Overview

The client had one vision in mind – to create a versatile and robust online platform for teachers that meets their diverse needs. The online platform needed to be user-friendly, secure, feature-rich, and scalable to handle the present demands and be compatible with future needs. Most importantly, the client wanted a technologically sound online platform that could handle a wide array of educational content, interactive tools, and community features.

Our team had to transform this remarkable idea into a viable product. We brought together highly experienced developers, programmers, and other subject experts to leverage cutting-edge technologies and build a futuristic state-of-the-art platform.


Challenges & Objectives

The objective was to create a feature-rich and high-performing platform with advanced functionalities to foster a close-knit community of teachers helping them share, learn and upskill themselves.

The project presented itself with unique challenges which our team strategically and smartly handled. They were:

· Integrating a diverse set of technologies to create a seamless user experience.

· Ensuring scalability to accommodate millions of users.

· Providing real-time collaboration tools and resources for teachers.

· Implementing a comprehensive support system for ongoing platform maintenance.

Our team of experts equipped with technical knowledge and experience resolved these challenges to build a seamless and reliable online platform.


Strategic Approach

Ampcome’s approach was holistic and focused on the technical and community-building aspects of the platform. We had to build a platform that seamlessly supports the publication of educational lessons, live sessions, webinars, and other resources. Plus, we had to integrate interactive and community features so that teachers across the world could come together on the platform to share their experiences and knowledge as well as learn and explore more opportunities.

Technology Stack Selection: The team chose a powerful combination of Flutter and Next.js for a responsive front-end, Node.js for efficient server-side operations, and PostgreSQL for a robust database. Digital Ocean was selected for reliable, scalable cloud hosting.

UI/UX Design: Understanding that a platform's success hinges on its user experience, a significant emphasis was placed on creating an intuitive, engaging, and accessible design.

Agile Development: The project was developed using agile methodologies, allowing for flexibility, rapid prototyping, and iterative feedback from real users.

Integration and Scalability: The team carefully planned and implemented over 50 integrations, ensuring that the platform could easily connect with various educational tools and resources.


Execution & Implementation

Our team broke down the development process into small stages each focusing on a specific phase of the project. From project ideation & research to prototype designing, development, and testing, we followed a transparent and collaborative development approach to keep our client in the loop about the progress of the project.

Our project cycle and budget iteration planning enabled us to complete each phase on time with high accuracy. This ensured that the overall project delivery timeline did not exceed the pre-set deadline and we were able to meet client expectations.

1. Development Stage: The team devoted immense effort to building the fundamental elements of the platform, encompassing user profiles, content management systems, collaborative areas, and communication utilities.

2. Testing and Assurance: Thorough testing was undertaken to guarantee operational efficiency, high performance, and robust security measures. Actual educators actively participated in the testing phase, offering invaluable feedback and perspectives.

3. Launch: The platform went live accompanied by an extensive onboarding procedure, aiding educators in acquainting themselves with innovative tools and functionalities.


Results & Outcomes

Our comprehensive project planning and technical proficiency with the team enabled us to build a top-notch online platform that was on par with the client's vision and expectations.

· The platform became the world’s largest community of teachers successfully connecting 1.5 million teachers worldwide.

· The teachers on the platform reported significant improvement in their skills enabling them to adopt innovative teaching practices.
