Math Essentials produces great math and algebra work books. They first retained Sturm Media to produce DVD video tutorials that would be sold along with each book.
After completing that project, I suggested that they take the program online. There would be no shipping, or printing costs once the website was up, and they could reach a wider targetd audience.
"We were missing a key component to our tutorial website, and that was tracking. Although our students could view the video tutorial, download the written exercies, and take the quizzes, there was no method to track the students progress. We had used Sturm Media for our original website development and video production so we came back to them for the new application. As always, they did an outstanding job, and now each student has a personal dashboard that tracks their progress. Parents and teachers can also monitor each student!
Their initial budget was really tight, so we built it on the Joomla CMS platform, encoded all the video to h.264 and had the site up in less than a couple of months. The site did well but many parents and teachers were requesting student progress tracking. We updated the look of the website and built it from the ground up in php and a MySQL database.
