The Company

Weg! is an Afrikaans outdoor and travel magazine and a prominent title in the Media24 stable of magazines. Published monthly, Weg! magazine covers a wide range of travel and outdoor lifestyle topics. Photography is a central pillar of the publication and as such they wanted to create an Afrikaans website that offered an e-learning and online training course for digital photography. The result was Neem Beter Fotos

The Challenge

The requirement was to build an Afrikaans e-learning website which would give users an introduction to digital photography as well as offer slightly more advanced insights into the technical aspects of taking and managing post production of professional digital photographs.

One of the main challenges was to translate the site. The course, lessons and homepage content was supplied in Afrikaans but we needed to translate the e-learning software we used, as well as all the WooCommerce related strings.

The Solution

Using the Sensei Learning Management Solution combined with WooCommerce, we were able to build the site with our LSX theme, which is compatible with Sensei LMS and WooCommerce out the box. This enabled us to focus on showcasing the imagery on the homepage and create a simple solution for the client to manage and upload their own content.

The course consisted of 6 modules, with connected lessons relating to each module. After each lesson, users were presented with a quiz. In order to progress to the next lesson, users had to complete and pass each quiz with a pass mark of 50%. When users completed and passed the course they were presented with a certificate of completion. The client provided a design for this, which we integrated into the Sensei LMS. 

Using WooCommerce’s Social Login extension, users were able to log in with Facebook, Google or Twitter, and as there was only one product (the photography course), the Cart phase of the checkout was skipped. The product is automatically added to the cart when users click to sign up, and they are then directed straight to checkout for payment.

Thanks to the power of the LSX Theme and the WooCommerce and Sensei plugins, we were able to build Weg! Neem Beter Fotos as a fully-fledged Afrikaans-language learning platform that allowed the client to focus on creating, managing and uploading their own course, lesson and quiz content.


The Result

Thanks to the power of the Storefront Theme and the WooCommerce and Sensei plugins, we were able to build this fully-fledged learning platform which allowed the client to focus on creating, managing and uploading their own course, lesson and quiz content.
