Curtin University's Robertson Library wanted to establish a brand new eLearning hub to help their students with their study skills – including time management, referencing and essay writing. The online eLearning hub should also provide essential resources for postgraduate researchers and teaching professionals. At the end of the 3 months contract we wanted to have a highly refined, interactive prototype of the eLearning Hub available that focussed on one of the main difficulties (undergraduate) students experienced during their studies.
The challenge here was to create a product that fulfilled the needs and requirements of a variety of internal stakeholders (research department, teaching support and marketing etc.), as well as our main target audience (tertiary students). I was the only UI/UX Designer working on this project together with a developer, project manager, content developer and subject matter experts. My main task was to create the user interface for the eLearning environment, with a particular emphasis on a well thought through user experience throughout. I worked both onsite, as well as remotely and was available for weekly team meetings on campus. Due to project funding restrictions the role was a a fixed term contract from September 2018 to December 2018.
