CAVE Academy is the alternative to a university-based 3D effects curriculum. Their training philosophy revolves around more intimate and personable live training sessions, and this quality helps CAVE to achieve higher course prices.
To guarantee students get the best opportunity to learn, CAVE Academy has adopted a model that mimics classroom teaching, accessible on a global scale. Classes are limited and delivered by live webinar so that students around the world can participate in lessons along with their peers. There’s a deep focus on providing students with constructive feedback on their work and encouraging students to support each others’ learning through a range of features we’ve built into Cave Academy’s LMS.
Students really are the focus of these courses, so creating a custom student dashboard was integral to the project to ensure high-engagement.The dashboard shows students’ courses, lessons and the assessment progress of their assignments.
We were also conscious of how maintaining student engagement is one of the biggest difficulties that any online course provider faces. We factored this in by setting up an alerts system, automatically onboarding students and sending them course and webinar notifications via email so they don’t miss a thing.
Cave Academy needed a robust, custom assessment functionality to allow them to test their students in a way that brings value to their ongoing learning.With their custom LMS, students can download the assets needed for their assessment and then upload their final project and await their grade.
But the real value lies in the review system we’ve implemented that gives tutors a means to provide their critique which their students can then respond to, creating a dialogue around the feedback to boost understanding and development.
We’ve created a shop for Cave Academy to provide professionals with everything they’ll need for their project through a digital asset e-commerce shop.
Students aren’t reliant on the store but can find a brilliant range of textures and models on offer directly from their course provider adding value to the academy in more ways than one.
Here’s a handful of other project highlights:
- Tutor management system that helps tutors to manage their own profiles, assess student work and provide valuable feedback
- Course landing pages designed to help improve conversions
- Membership system that allows users access to daily webinars
