Building an Interactive Video Course

Using the CM Video Lessons Manager and CM Download Manager the Umbrella Financial Services Tax Solutions Group was able to build a complete learning management system and offer video courses to students.

Here is a quick walk-through of what this solution looks like:

Student Registration and Login

Each student received a special registration code allowing him to register to the e-learning site. The registration code is unique to the student access credentials and to specific lessons.

Setting up the Invitation Codes

The administrator can set up the invitation codes in the backend. He can create as many students group as he like. Each group has access only to selected lessons. Once a student registers with a specific registration code, he is automatically assigned to this group and therefore has access only to specific lessons.
