Case study: YWD + Shopify + online learning with Litmos

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.

Centre for Career Innovation

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.
