Virtual Surgery Simulation

440,000 patients die from medical errors every year. Many more will suffer from the complications of these errors. When medical students don’t get adequate time operating, there is a higher risk of mistakes that lead to malpractice suits. Virtual surgery is a realistic training environment that builds muscle memory for far less than using  cadavers.

Centre for Career Innovation: design & and integration of website, Shopify store and Litmos LMS

 April 28, 2016
by Flavio Mester

Centre for Career Innovation
centre-for-career-innovation.myshopify.com

Our client Challenge Factory was developing a comprehensive set of online courses, built on the Litmos Learning Management System (LMS), for leaders & managers, individual career transitioners and HR professionals & practitioners.

They needed to be able to connect the Litmos platform with the store through a single sign on, and also wanted to visually integrate the learning environment, the online store and their main public website – which we had previously designed and built for them using our own Content Management System.

An integrated visual nomenclature

Litmos look and feel

First we developed a design system that allows for easy identification of categories and courses, which are shared between the learning and e-com environments. That included customizing the Litmos interface so that the Centre’s branding, colour palette and corporate messaging could be present.

Building the Shopify store

Shopify interface

Working closely with the client, we created their online store and customized the Shopify experience using both the theme’s built-in options as well as custom coding in order to match the client’s corporate website look and feel as such as possible and sharing the same visual nomenclature for the courses we developed. We also designed additional elements like content sliders, FAQ and other support pages. We then used a plugin to import and connect all the courses with the Litmos environment, so that when a client purchases a course through the Shopify store, they are given access to it on Litmos.

Main public website

Finally, we added callouts to key pages of the main Challenge Factory website – which we had previously designed and built on our own CMS – pointing to the online store.

Challenge Factory website

Challenge Factory’s Centre for Career Innovation is a coaching and training hub that supports leaders, managers and individuals as they navigate today’s Talent Revolution, and you can now securely purchase any of its many courses online.

Brett Langill is a Toronto-based Certified Financial Planner, a Chartered Investment Manager, and a Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute. Brett tailors his financial planning services to your individual situation, goals and risk tolerance so you can enjoy the life you’re living and feel confident about your future.

As a Certified Financial Planner, a Chartered Investment Manager, and a Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute, investing is something Brett understood and enjoyed even at a young age. In fact, he started making money in the market when he was 12 years old, using the proceeds from 7 paper routes and his dad as a go-between.

How badly did Brett need a new website? Well, take a look at his old website

We completely redesigned his old website, made it much more user-friendly and attractive. Not only that but we conveyed the fact that Brett is a regular guy – and he is. Brett wants to live in a world where everyone lives within their means, the Leafs make the play-offs, and people tackle jig saw puzzles by completing the border first.
