Development of Integrated Leaderboard, Event Calendar, Email Management System, and Reward Redemption Process

Background

Blue Studios is providing online learning opportunities to students starting from preschool to 12th grade with the help of online learning classes and many other skill based courses of various categories through webinars, videos, and live classes.

Before reaching out to Mpire Solutions, they were not aware of the concept of a leaderboard. Morever, no mechanism existed to rank the users based on projects, assignments, and quizzes for a specific subject and / or other categories. Instead, they were using a grading system based on marks without any conceptualization of leaderboard rankings.

To begin with, they required a complete mechanism of an event calendar where the users can easily book online projects based on availabilities and offers. We had to select the most appropriate technology to develop an efficient, user-friendly, and integrated event calendar.

Furthermore, with live classes and other online learning activities that can help the users earn rewards, they wanted us to create a mechanism of reward redemption using the right technologies and integration with third parties and within the platform, so that registered users can easily redeem their gifts without any delays.

The last thing they required was a customized and integrated email management system to deal with the auto-generated email throughout the registration process.

Challenge

The main task was to create a leaderboard from scratch while integrating all other functions that are related to assignments and the grading system. Since Blue Studios were already using different third-party integrated platforms (Klayvio, Userpilot, & Typeform), our team had to face a lot of limitation throughout the process of development.

Another main challenge was to initiate the custom codes due to no direct access. Our team of experienced and certified developers spent extensive time on the project to find and implement the best possible solution in order to meet the requirements. The client provided us with a specific design and we had to suggest the most efficient technologies for different platforms of the website to get the desired results.

The reward redemption process was yet another challenge for our team. We had to use the right third-party integration platform to develop a well-structured and smooth reward redemption process for the registered users that were ranking in the leaderboard. Other than that, the client required a proper email management system for the new users so that when they register on the platform, they can get the confirmation email right away. 

Requirements

  • Integrated Leaderboard Development – To create, implement, and integrate a leaderboard for a proper ranking system based on different online activities.
  • Event Calendar Development – To manage the live activities and to book for available projects.
  • Features Enhancement – To enhance existing features in order to effectively integrate with the leaderboard.
  • Integrated Gift/Reward Redemption Process – To redeem the gifts based on grades & ranking, on the leaderboard.
  • Email Management System –  To generate and send auto-generated emails through third-party integration throughout the registration process.

Solution

Since the basic design was provided by the client, our experienced and certified team of developers came up with the right mix of technologies (ASP.NET, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Uscreen) to perform both tasks.

We started the leaderboard development using ASP.NET for backend & HTML/CSS/JavaScript for frontend development. Since we used customized technology throughout the development process, there were no limitations or barriers throughout the coding process.

We managed to get 3rd party integrations with various platforms to achieve the desired results with the leaderboard. We suggested and implemented a variety of technologies for the admin panel and registration process of the website to make them more optimized and user-friendly.

After successfully developing an integrated leaderboard, we moved towards creating an effective event calendar for the users to book the live events easily. We used Uscreen technology to create an event calendar that shows the availability of the live events.

Furthermore, the implementation of the integrated gift redemption process greatly helped the registered users on the leaderboard in redeeming their gifts based on total points, projects submitted, and quizzes.

To address the need of a proper email management system, we implemented third-party integration with Klayvio technology, so that newly registered users can get an instant auto-generated email for confirmation.

Results

  • We managed to successfully create a customized and integrated leaderboard for the client with the implementation of ASP.NET, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript technology.
  • Registered users can now see their rankings through the leaderboard.
  • An event calendar was developed with the best practices of Uscreen technology.
  • A proper reward redemption was developed using third-party integration.
  • An integrated and customized email management system was implemented to send instant emails to newly registered users.
  • All the features that were mandatory for successful customization and integration were enhanced.
  • The management of Blue Studios was fully satisfied as we managed to custom deliver the project as per their exact requirement.

Benefits

  • The integrated leaderboard encourages the registered users to perform above par and to get the motivation to see themselves ranking on top of the leaderboard.
  • The event calendar helps the users to register for various live classes throughout the week/month.
  • The reward redemption system allows the registered users to easily redeem their gifts based on ranking, grades, assignments submitted, and, quizzes.
  • The integrated email management system makes the entire registration process more flexible and significant.
