European Centre of Technology Implement New Online Booking System

European Center of TechnologyScope

ECT (European Centre of Technology) operate an online booking system for distance learning courses and examinations and were keen to offer an enhanced experience to the market. They needed to upgrade their existing Moodle platform to take advantage of enriched online features, such as:

  • Greater flexibility in booking courses and examinations online
  • Automatic reminders for course participation and examinations
  • Automatic dispatch of course certificates upon completion

New Benefit Rich System

The Pulsion team moved quickly to understand ECT’s needs and objectives. All of the original course content was migrated to the newly developed system and the Moodle system was then customised to meet specific requirements:

  • Adding custom fields and notes that can only be seen by select users
  • Removing mandatory fields
  • Heavy customisation on ‘booking’ and ‘certificate’ plugins in order to adhere to ECT’s requirements
  • Functionality to facilitate automatic recording while students sit exams was introduced via a third party plugin

The project team kept in regular contact with ECT, carrying out user acceptance testing on an ongoing basis.

Automated Online Exam Booking

In partnership with ECT, Pulsion developed an automatic online exam booking system, where students can book their exams but ECT stay in control of the process of releasing certificates:

  • The system has built-in security systems and coding standards
  • More dynamic and up-to-date look and feel
  • ECT can publish multiple slots for exams, however the student can only book one
  • ECT can choose which students receive the results email right away and who shouldn’t receive it at all
  • ECT will have a recording of the student taking the exam which is saved in the system
  • The issuing of certificates is automatic – there is no need for ECT to send the certificates to students themselves
