USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN
Understand the past. Change the now. Design the future.
Many people are disappointed in the current information marketplace. It's hard to tie information given online to actionable steps that can be taken to solve real problems. Many people look to traditional education platforms for information and guidance. That information, however, is very academic and not applicable to the real world.
This project lasted 2 weeks with a group and 2 weeks working alone.
As the only UX designer in the group, I was the primary UI designer. In the last two weeks, I was a copywriter.
NuCademy is an online educational platform that provides collaboration and digestible, historical-based, unbiased information. Courses use interactive teaching methods, collaboration, live classes, and group discussion, as well as traditional models like lectures, videos, and articles. NuCademy takes the first step in taking action to help with social issues.
This project was completed as part of my remote internship with The Commons in Milwaukee, WI.
