Storyboards & Planning
To plan for our design mockups, I drew a storyboard of what we aspects of our process we want to include. Our main goal was to focus on each course module that should include a 5-minute or shorter overview video or animation, interactive presentations of the concepts through text, animations, audio narration and video clips.
Interactive examples and exercises intended to capture and reinforce learning. This feature should be able to be turned on or off depending on institutional preference.
About Us page
These wireframes indicate the process of user interface design so that my design team can understand the user flow easily.
We're currently working on updating our online course and Learning Management System and Enrollment Process.
We also had a lot of ideas come out of the ideation stage that we couldn’t prioritize due to the amount of effort and less value it brought in comparison.
Once fall semester ends we’ll have a better understanding of what metrics we should focus on more and what to iterate on.
