The advantages of digital onboarding
Digital learning, or e-learning, has become ubiquitous due to the Corona Crisis. Inevitably becoming part of everyday life for children, students and many employees, e-learning is not only viewed positively. As with all areas of life that are gradually being digitized, the same applies here: Digital is not automatically better than analog and, if the solution is not well thought out, the digital alternative will not find acceptance.
Our solution: Learningbank
In order to be able to take advantage of "digital" in onboarding, but at the same time avoid the potential pitfalls as best as possible, we opted for the e-learning platform of a modern provider from Denmark.
Learningbank.io offers a platform on which knowledge can be built quickly and easily, and consumed just as quickly and easily. Simplicity is key. Aspects such as gamification, interactivity, microlearning and experience play a major role. In the form of modules and learning paths, knowledge is imparted in small chunks, you can exit and re-enter at any time, and the whole thing works on all devices. Quizzes and ranking lists generate a competitive character that allows you to measure yourself against colleagues.
In 6 steps to your 1st product configurator
1. the entry into the backend
To get an overview of terms, structure and basic functionalities, it is best to start with the module "Introduction to the Backend". This module forms the basis. You will also learn how the development, collaboration and publication of new versions of the configurator work.
2. product data and business logic
The "brain" of the configurator is described in the second learning path:
- How is product data mapped?
- How are logics incorporated?
- And how are user interactions recorded and processed?
The most technically demanding part makes the eyes of IT specialists shine brighter, especially if you have already faced the challenge of creating a product configurator.
3. how to build a user-friendly UI in Combeenation
The user interface is the interface to the customer and determines to a large extent how much users will enjoy using the configurator. What criteria you should use to build layouts, how to make the configurator responsive, and how to internationalize or "whitelabel" the configurator - all this you will learn in this section. Especially if you are into UX design and frontend development, you will enjoy this section.
4. visualize and stage a product in the configurator
The visualization of the product often makes the difference between a good and an outstanding customer experience. We basically distinguish between 2D and 3D configurators, how visualizations are implemented, and of course the technical requirements for this (poly modeling, 3D file formats, PBR materials or WebGL).
A learning path, which certainly holds a lot of new knowledge for you - and for me personally was the most exciting part.
5. integrate the configurator seamlessly
How do you embed the finished configurator on the website, in the store or on the landing page (spoiler: very simple)? How does the checkout work? How are input interfaces for the transfer of data implemented? And what other tips and tricks are there for integrating the configurator as seamlessly as possible into the existing IT infrastructure, both technically and visually? You'll find out all about this in this learning path.
Good programs do not have bugs. And if they do, at least no one notices them. To make the search for bugs as easy and efficient as possible, we have integrated our own debugging functionality - to discover errors and improve performance.
