With a mission to attract forward-thinkers among individuals and organizations, Projector Institute proves that digital transformation brings a fresh approach to learning.

Challenges The Projector Team Faced With
What prompted the Projector Online Institute team to transition to a new training system, and how did EducateMe LMS assist them in addressing these challenges effectively?
#1. Managing Homework Assignments
Challenge. Projector Tech Online Institute struggled to efficiently manage homework assignments without a systematic tracking and evaluation system. The manual process was time-consuming, led to issues in tracking assignment deadlines, and required extensive administrative effort. It was a challenge to provide timely feedback to students and ensure that their assignments were properly reviewed.
Solution. EducateMe LMS brought a more organized and automated system for handling homework assignments.
Assignment management effect: With a unified assignment dashboard, flexible deadline management options, and progress tracking features, educators were able to efficiently assess assignments, offer feedback, and request revisions as needed.
Learning experience effect: Students could submit their assignments and monitor their progress directly through the platform, eliminating the need for external applications. This not only saved time but also fostered a conducive learning environment akin to traditional methods.
#2. Time-Consuming Administrative Tasks
Challenge. The administrative burden of course management, including scheduling classes and managing student progress, hindered the staff's ability to focus on more strategic tasks. They are concerned with improving course content, addressing urgent issues, and enhancing the learning experience.
Solution. EducateMe LMS automation optimized essential administrative processes.
Course management effect: The system allowed Projector Institute to plan its courses for up to three months in advance with just a few clicks, reducing administrative time spent on scheduling and planning.
Program management effect: Moreover, the platform offered flexibility, making it easy to make custom changes within programs and courses.
#3. Lack of Interaction and Engagement
Challenge. The lack of course interactivity was an obstacle to providing a holistic learning experience. Projector Institute aimed to foster interactive and engaging learning environments. However, their previous learning environment did not adequately support this goal, as students and educators had limited means of interaction and communication.
Solution. EducateMe LMS provided Projector Online Institute with a more interactive and engaging learning environment. Although the institute intentionally utilizes Slack as the primary communication channel between students and instructors (to prepare students for corporate collaboration), the EducateMe platform made it much more convenient to submit assignments, monitor progress, and receive feedback.
Student immersion effect: The interactive features encouraged students to participate more actively in their courses, improving their learning experience.
#4. Absence Of A Single Student Performance System
Challenge. Having no unified performance system prevented the Projector Institute from understanding student experience and linking it to business goals.
Solution. EducateMe LMS offered a single dashboard with essential performance and attendance data. In addition, it brought a “red flag” system, notifying the Projector Online Institute team of the students who underperform.
Impact on Satisfaction Measurement: The Projector Team used student data reports to develop the CSAT (or customer satisfaction) model and align it with business goals.
Effect on Student Experience: With the EducateMe “red flag” system, the Projector team identified the students who had issues and could offer them support, improving the overall experience.
How Projector Institute Navigated The Challenges During The Early Stages Of The Conflict In Ukraine
