Many communication platforms for students are
often poorly designed, bulky, and inefficient.
We were tasked with improving an educational software of our choice, so we picked one that we, as UGA students, find issue with all the time.
UGA's Brightspace D2L, known as eLC.
Overview of our project
Identifying and Refining Problems
To better understand our issue, we user-tested eLC, especially its instant messaging and emailing components.
Using research material available to us through UGA, we found peer-reviewed articles that described why some communication applications work or did not work within an educational setting.
Our citation list can be found here.
We finalized design choices and executed an interactive mockup of the interface on Figma.
For further detail on our project, my
groupmate Helium was appointed to record our responses on his website.
