Focus On Youth 24/7
Unlike our other projects, this project required custom development of Moodle. Moodle is a Learning Management System that isn’t very friendly to customization.
Monarch Media, Inc. was referred to us by another agency we worked with in the past. With absolutely no Moodle experience, we paved some new territory!
Work We Performed:
- HTML Development
- CSS Development
- PHP Programming
- MySQL Database Administration
Project Consists Of:
- Progression Gates
- Gamification Visualization
- Unique Look/Feel
The Problem We Faced!
Moodle isn’t really designed to be friendly for customizing how content is rendered. When Monarch Media presented us with their unique design, there was no easy way of getting it implemented. Our first pass was a very hackish method, but we later implemented a better solution.
When we finally had an opportunity to implement a better solution. We moved all of the code outside of Moodle. By invoking Moodle’s core, we could tap directly into Moodle’s data without needing to go through it. This allowed us to shave 3 to 5 seconds off of the load times that users previously experienced.
