Pearson education is a world learning company with longstanding leadership and expertise in educational publishing and assessment that provides services to schools, corporations and individual students worldwide. It’s technological products include interactive educational systems that provide access to academic material, as well as mastering platforms.
As a leading provider of learning experiences worldwide, they have created different initiatives powered by the Open edX technology and one good example is Pearson Advance, this in particular consists of offering flexible online courses from the world’s leading universities that involve a variety of programs in different knowledge fields. Just like these initiatives, they offer a wide range of facilities to its community and for that reason there’s a specific demand of requirements to their Open edX platforms.
Pearson identified an opportunity to grow by re-selling their courses to other providers in the industry, and that required the execution of data synchronization, which was one particular challenge for them. The synchronization of data allows the course content to be available in external platforms which facilitates the re-selling process, as well as the integration with their current CRM.
One other specific need was to be able to manage and develop specific features for their learning platforms powered by the Open edX technology, that involved customization of course management and prerequisites.
In order to fulfill those specific needs on their learning platform, since 2020 Pearson relies on eduNEXT as an strategic partner that provides consulting services for the Open edX technologies, delivering the knowledge and expertise required for many challenges, including data and analytics, custom branding, platform extensions, custom integrations, Ecommerce, custom development, staff training and more.
