Curriki, a US-based non-profit education organisation that builds tools that enable open access to technologies that can improve the way educational experiences are designed, created, and delivered, has completed a six-week Red Hat Open Innovation Labs residency to develop digital learning solutions for students.
During the pandemic the Curriki team needed to scale CurrikiStudio, an open, interactive learning content authoring solution to millions of users and deploy it to different cloud providers. This led Curriki to work with Red Hat Open Innovation Labs to help make its offerings, including CurrikiStudio more accessible to education institutes.
Curriki streamlined its tools, making them even more simple and seamless to set up and install on all major cloud platforms, allowing education institutes to get started on creating interactive lessons rapidly.
Red Hat Open Innovation Labs also introduced agile methodology, including DevOps, to Curriki’s teams, enabling them to develop their software more efficiently and increase productivity.
The collaboration led the Curriki team in achieving six months of work in six weeks which included optimising code, leveraging auto scaling capabilities with the help of OpenShift, and automating the installation through push button deployment and containerisation.
