E-learning Web Application



Rolled out



In Bangladesh, the banking sector involves rigorous training and skill development structures which are rigid in nature, time consuming and a lot of resources.

CityBank, a leading giant in the industry, faced similar problems with their employees as they had to relocate them for upskilling and training, realizing high training costs, and outdated procedures when they first approached ARITS while envisioning a modern and efficient solution A new mandate from the Bangladesh Bank required training all of their existing 5100+ employees altogether. Here’s how we made it possible.


In collaboration with ARITS, CityBank was able to envision a transformative learning platform which would be able to enhance the overall learning process for all their employees. The goal was to create an eLearning platform to streamline internal training for CityBank employees.

Eventually, CityShikhi was designed and developed as a web application to bring to fruition the idea of a holistic eLearning solution. It’s not just like any other boring learning experience which leaves room for unfulfillment.


Our project features in-depth training programs and courses, so that employees could now learn anytime, anywhere from the new website which we developed on top of Moodle.
