Implementation

Typical steps in a NEO implementation

Each step is usually reviewed by an administrator/instructional designer:

  • 1

    Signing up for a site

    5 minutes. You can create your own site from our home page

  • 2

    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.

  • 3

    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.

  • 4

    Configuring the class 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.

  • 5

    Configuring e-commerce (optional)

    15 minutes. We integrate with Stripe (recommended), Authorize.net, and PayPal.

  • 6

    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 NEO. If you want to set up custom SSO, then this requires developer skills in the language of the site you wish to integrate with.

  • 7

    Creating an outline of each class

    A few hours per class. This requires basic instructor skills and domain knowledge in order to determine what the class will cover.

  • 8

    Creating a curriculum for each class (optional, but recommended)

    A few hours per class. This requires basic instructor skills and domain knowledge in order to determine what proficiencies the class will cover.

  • 9

    Creating the materials for each lesson

    A few hours per lesson. 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.

  • 10

    Creating the assignments for each class

    1 hour per assignment. All types of assignments can be created easily. Comprehensive randomized quizzes that select from a question bank can take a little longer.

  • 11

    Creating the learning paths (optional)

    30 minutes per learning path. Adding a learning path is fairly easy, with just a few options to configure.

  • 12

    Beta testing the classes

    1 day per class on average depending on the complexity of the class.

  • 13

    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 class via our e-commerce system.
