Typical steps in a MATRIX implementation
Each step is usually reviewed by an administrator/instructional designer:
Signing up for a site
5 minutes. You can create your own site from our home page
Customizing your site
1 hour. This includes customizing your site with your own logo, color scheme, URL, and social media icons. If required, we can provide web design consulting services to help you with any customizing needs that you might require.
Creating accounts for administrators and instructors
20 minutes. This is usually easily done using our web form option for creating accounts. We also support many other kinds of account creation, such as API, LDAP, email invitations, or bulk import.
Configuring the course catalog
20 minutes. This simply requires selecting from several layout options. We recommend using attractive pictures for each catalog category, which can easily be purchased from a stock photo site.
Configuring e-commerce (optional)
15 minutes. We integrate with Stripe (recommended), Authorize.net, and PayPal.
Configuring single-sign on (optional)
15 minutes if using G Suite SSO.
1 hour if using LDAP/Active Directory, which requires knowledge of LDAP and the ability to configure your LDAP system to be securely accessed by MATRIX. If you want to set up custom SSO, then this requires developer skills in the language of the site you wish to integrate with.
Creating an outline of each course
A few hours per course. This requires basic instructor skills and domain knowledge in order to determine what the course will cover.
Creating a curriculum for each course (optional, but recommended)
A few hours per course. This requires basic instructor skills and domain knowledge in order to determine what proficiencies the course will cover.
Creating the materials for each module
A few hours per module. This is the most time intensive part of implementation, and is wholly dependent on whether new materials need to be created or existing materials can be embedded or repurposed.
Creating the assessments for each course
1 hour per assessment. All types of assessments can be created easily. Comprehensive randomized quizzes that select from a question bank can take a little longer.
Creating the learning paths (optional)
30 minutes per learning path. Adding a learning path is fairly easy, with just a few options to configure.
Beta testing the courses
1 day per course on average depending on the complexity of the course.
Creating student accounts
30 minutes if using a bulk upload. We also support many other kinds of account creation, such as self sign-up, API, LDAP, email invitations, and purchasing a course via our e-commerce system.
