Online Certification platform [Access to TYPO3 / Education / Certification]

Added by Florian Langer almost 2 years ago

What is your idea about?
The TYPO3 certification infrastructure is both complicated and expensive. A new online certification platform will solve several problems we currently have in the TYPO3 ecosystem.

What is the potential impact of your idea?
"All TYPO3 certifications (TCCE, TCCI, TCCD & TCCC) will be available in one online tool. The EduComm will have the possibility to update the exams with newer versions at any time; planned
are releases in-sync with the release of every TYPO3 CMS LTS version with an offset of 8 weeks. The new certification platform will provide both the possibility to take an exam online
(WITH identity check and fraud control via webcam) and in a test center. This will push the certification on a new level and enables the certification all over the world.

The certification workflow (including marketing, data handling, ...) will be extraordinarily improved. "

Approximate Funds needed
€50,000 - €75,000

Any existing platform used for this or is this a completely new development?

We are planning to use an existing platform and evaluate especially two services for this purpose.

Personally, I had experience with several certifications types.

The most serious, it's probably Pearson VUE : as the system of personal control is implemented, so there is no fraud. But at the moment I don't know how much it cost to register and support the exam.

We do use Pearson VUE for the TCCI exam at the moment, but the handling is complicated and unflexible, the costs are high (!) and their solution does not fit our requirements for all of the four certifications we offer.

We evaluate an online tool which offers personal control (via webcam) as well and there might be the possibility to use also a test centre if someone does not want to take the exam online.
