How we helped National Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship Development (NIESBUD) to develop it's e-learning platform during COVID-19 lockdown


How could we offer trainings with physical limitations during lockdown in COVID-19?


Build a fully functional, customised e learning platform

NIESBUD is a premier organization of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India , engaged in training, consultancy, research, etc. in order to promote entrepreneurship and Skill Development.

During COVID-19, NIESBUD witnessed an unprecedented slump in training delivery due to lockdown. They decided to temporarily move their training programs to a customised e-learning solution.

We needed to design and build an e-learning platform from scratch which included building the system architecture, User Interface, Data Base management and security protocols.

Conversation with a broad spectrum of stakeholders unearthed a common need : the desire to deliver an exceptional e-learning experience, on both phone and laptops, for trainees located in the remote corners of India.

User journey of the e-learning platform

We first understood the special requirements of the institute. Subsequently we designed the User Interface and codified it for a unified experience to all trainees. Special care was taken to create two way systems of communication where the faculty and trainees can effortlessly interact with each other even on a 3G network.


We gave NIESBUD a unique solution

  • The platform delivered training to more than 1000 trainees in 2 months
  • NIESBUD launched a total of 8 courses on the platform
