www.onlinegrinds.ie offers live and interactive lessons to Irish Leaving and Junior certificate students.
Sulware was first approached to work on www.onlinegrinds.ie back in 2011.
This is a very ambitious project targetting a user base of 60,000 students. From a technical perspective a complex member ship system and teacher / timetable management system needed to be built to allow the staff to easily setup and manage online video live video lessons. State of the art video streaming servers were built and configured allowing for thousands of concurrent users. The site is currently on it's third incarnation and is about to be upgraded to incorporate the latest responsive and mobile designs.
The site is in it's second year of production.
November 2014 Update
Unfortunately OnlineGrinds shut down this week. We still see it as being one of our most ambitious and best projects to date, but alas the business failed to succeed and finally closed it's doors. Click here to read all about the rise and fall of OnlineGrinds in Brendan's blog entry.
Stenson Institue Ltd. first approached Sulware three years ago in 2011 with the idea of building www.onlinegrinds.ie, a new leading edge website to deliver high quality live and interactive tutorials to the Irish market. Sulware worked with us to develop the specification we needed and then built the site not only to spec, but also included additional requirements over and above the original spec. They have been a fantastic web development partner. The whole process was exceptionally professional and efficient. We couldn't be happier with the end result. They continue to provide exemplary ongoing support.
