Skhole is a learning platform aimed at providing medical students or employees with high-quality courses with evidence-based materials in the healthcare sector.
Skhole is a privately held company founded in 2014 in Helsinki, Finland. The company is striving to create a new universal standard for healthcare education.
At the core of Skhole’s services, there is a learning platform with a variety of courses for medical staff and students. It is mostly oriented towards schools and organizations providing healthcare education and services.
When Skhole decided to develop a more modern and scalable learning platform, the ElifTech team was contacted. After a thorough analysis of requirements, we needed to plan and build together with Skhole’s CTO an entire platform architecture and develop a new healthcare education tool with different roles and types of access.
Working alongside the client, ElifTech assembled a dedicated team to develop an interactive learning platform. We provided consultancy to select the best technology for the project, and it was agreed to use Node.js and MongoDB for the backend and React for the frontend.
The new functionality and access control were implemented, thanks to which Skhole users can be assigned to different roles – Administrator, Teacher, or Student — each with their own level of access and functions. A Teacher can create and edit courses on different medical science topics, while students can easily choose and access the needed materials. Furthermore, all users can communicate with each other, debate on topics, express their preferences, and comment on each other’s results.
Once the system had been thoroughly tested and had met all of the client’s requirements, we seamlessly transferred all existing accounts, data, and user details from the old platform to the new one.
With our solid knowledge in web development, we were able to build an interactive healthcare platform where medical students and employees can learn from evidence-based materials that have been written and vetted by doctors.
The platform was enriched with new functionalities, which improved the studying experience and efficiency. The newly developed architecture allows for frictionless scalability of the platform and eliminates tech limitations.
