DESCRIPTION:
Accountant Skills was a side-project of CTL International, a Canada based business consulting firm with offices in the USA and Taiwan. They developed a range of in class business and accounting courses and saw potential with making the accounting courses available online.

CTL and I connected with the goal of creating an online course portal, where users can purchase courses and instantly start studying. 

CHALLENGE:
The online courses needed to be as autonomous as possible, giving instant grading where possible. And the solution needed to contain e-commerce elements that seamlessly integrated into the course system. 

RESPONSIBILITES:
As freelancer I was the sole designer/developer to work on this, creating the visual identity and building the solution from scratch.

outcome / reflection:
The orange-red theme was very much in line with the CEO, giving the online presence a fresh twist to what one might expect of accounting related material. I rather enjoyed working on that aspect of the project.

I did extensive research on finding a online course / e-commerce solution which wasn't expensive, relatively easy to setup and would fulfill all of CTL's course material requirements. We agreed to go with LearnDash, a WordPress plugin, which also integrates with WooCommerce.

LearnDash, is a great plugin, but needed a lot more setup time and maintenance than initially expected. The customer therefore was a little overwhelmed. Initial sign-ups did not meet CTL's expectations, but by project completion the marketing efforts have not yet caught on.
