Helium Developer Framework Dramatically Reduces Time-to-Delivery While Enabling Ultimate Flexibility in Academy Design and Customization
BOSTON – January 24, 2023 – Thought Industries, the leading enterprise learning platform for customer, partner and professional training, today announced the launch of its new online learning Academy powered by Helium, the world’s only fully customizable headless LMS developer framework, which was launched last year at the company’s annual customer and LMS industry event, Cognition22.
The Thought Industries Academy is the first launched using Helium, and takes advantage of the ultimate flexibility in design and development capabilities. Helium minimizes the time spent liaising with developers and maximizes the impact of every learning experience. One of the major advantages of building the new Academy using Helium is the significant reduction in time-to-delivery – from six months to five weeks, including the design of PDF wireframes all the way through to implementing code.
Thought Industries worked with Verified Helium Partner, Enable Education, to develop the new Academy site. “To be one of the first to test out this new framework, which we see as a huge competitive advantage for us and our clients, was super exciting!” says Ben Zimmer, CEO & Founder of Enable Education. “Enable’s web development team successfully leveraged Helium to rapidly produce the new, streamlined, and highly customized Academy page – and we’re thrilled with the result!”
Helium makes it easier for designers and developers to collaborate, which historically has been a pain point for many companies eager to customize and extend the capabilities of their LMS systems. Traditionally, designers either build the mockups, and are then met with constraints when developers try to translate them to the screen, or they view the system first, and then create limited mockups to match. Both of these approaches are difficult, costly and time-consuming.
“It was crucial for us to be our own first customer in creating the new Ti Learning Academy. Helium gave us all the flexibility we needed to meet the needs of learning professionals worldwide,” said Philip Cahill, Thought Industries Senior Director of Customer Education. “With Helium, we were able to build our new Academy without any limits, and as an added bonus, it gave us a great opportunity to show customers what Helium can do.”
The Thought Industries Academy is a one-stop shop for learning professionals looking to grow the potential of their Thought Industries learning platform and programs. Thought Industries customers will find an array of self-service resources, with new content, featured resources, and FAQs placed front and center to streamline the learning experience.
