ENGL Education

An eTextBook Subscription Platform for Web & Mobile

Challenge

An educational technology startup decided to make college textbooks more accessible and affordable for students.

As a new company, ENGL Education needed help creating an online platform that makes them stand out. ENGL idea was turned down by some of the Tech companies where as Soft Tech Group loved the idea and took up the challenging work. Soft Tech Group’s team was excited to be a part of ENGL mission to provide affordable textbooks for students and their dedication. Initially the Web App was to be completed and later the Mobile Apps were to be developed and implemented.

Challenge

Strategy & Solution

From frontend design to backend development, Soft Tech Group built the entire Laravel website from scratch. Quite vigorous research went into designing the UI/UX of the Web App to make it user-friendly.

One of the major features Soft Tech Group implemented was eTextbook streaming, which requires a readily available database of course books. The innovative page-flipping technology gives the e-books a realistic touch. A lot of API integration went into the site for features like the virtual highlighter, sticky notes, and the dictionary search function.

An easy-to-use payment system to purchase the affordable packages. Textbook solutions are available on the site so that students can verify their work. Students can also review their work with experts in real-time through the Q&A forum.

This Web App was also translated into the Mobile App with the same features and functionalities.
