In the era of career development, managing educational pathways is crucial for both students and educators. However, traditional methods often fail to streamline the approach.

Recognizing this gap, the CORD team sought a solution to empower organizations in managing career pathways effectively. They collaborated with BrainX to design and develop a comprehensive career mapping platform to facilitate the input, visualization, and management of career pathway data, catering to diverse organizational needs.



To address the identified opportunity, the BrainX team adopted a Scrum-based approach focused on understanding the primary requirements and reiterating after the client’s feedback. We began by analyzing the client's needs and potential challenges, including the technical challenge of mapping diverse career pathways accurately. This phase involved studying the functionalities required for career pathway data input, visualization, and management of user access control.

Collaborating closely with the client, we initiated the design and development process by creating wireframes and mockups to visualize the solution's architecture and user interface. The iterative approach ensured alignment with the project objectives and facilitated seamless communication between us and the CORD team throughout the development lifecycle.



Drawing from the insights gained up till the planning & risk evaluation phase, we designed and developed a robust solution encompassing various components to provide these technical solutions:

1. We used Laravel to develop a user-friendly app for organizations to seamlessly input credential details, prior credit, and high school equivalency courses.
2. The BrainX team created printable and online career pathway visualizations to allow users to visualize career pathway data comprehensively.
3. Our team integrated comprehensive features for editing, duplicating, deleting, archiving, and unarchiving pathway profiles to make pathway data manageable for admins.
4. BrainX’s experts added a notification system via email with a comment section to enable seamless communication among students and organization admins.
5. We streamlined reporting by allowing admins to access basic reports on organizations, users, and career pathway profiles for data-driven decision-making.



The implementation of the CORD platform yielded significant impacts across various dimensions:

  • Organizations experienced increased efficiency in managing career pathway data with intuitive tools and streamlined processes.
  • The platform facilitated seamless communication, maintaining a conducive environment for sharing knowledge and decision-making.
  • Enhanced visibility into career pathway data gave organizations a clearer understanding of educational journeys, leading to informed decision-making and improved outcomes.
  • Admins benefited from comprehensive management tools, empowering them to oversee organizational activities effectively and drive strategic initiatives.
  • Users reported positive feedback regarding the user-friendly interface and intuitive functionalities, contributing to a seamless user experience.
