Editions Didier, a renown editor of school books (member of the Hachette group), wanted to launch their first digital-first product: an e-learning platform to enhance teaching French as a foreign language (FLE) to adult learners, called Didier Nomade.
Didier Nomade was to be sold at language schools around the world, mostly Alliances Françaises and universities. I jumped on the project when the goal of the product had been defined and Didier chose an e-learning tool that would be the basis of this new platform. They recruted me first as a freelancer, and as the demand of work evolved I joined the team on a project basis.
As the product manager I was responsible for the following mission:
Customize an e-learning platform into a tool that meets all the specific needs for standardised language teaching
Internally, I was responsible for the coordination of functional needs of our editorial team and I mostly acted in a consultant/supporting role when it came to content creation for the platform.
Externally, I was the first contact for our contractors, giving briefings and feedback to an e-learning company and a graphical agency.
