About the Project

Business Overview & Client Profile


The American Mandarin Society (AMS), a nonpartisan nonprofit organization, entrusted DeveloperLook with developing its cutting-edge learning management system (LMS) website. 

With a membership of over 3,500 Mandarin-speaking professionals who have lived and worked in Chinese-speaking societies, AMS aims to support their ongoing language skills, knowledge exchange, and professional development.

Our mission is to empower AMS members by creating an intuitive and robust LMS platform that enhances their Mandarin language proficiency, facilitates policy insights, and fosters a vibrant community of Chinese-speaking professionals.
