This week I added to and refined my task flows and wireframe for the middle school virtual learning platform. I decided that because there are so many possible tasks for this platform, I should expand on the tasks that I already addressed and make some additional ones. Last week I made wireframes for entering the virtual classroom (which included logging into the platform) and connecting with peers to create a virtual study group. I refined these by adding arrows to guide the user through the wireframes and tweaking some details. I then created 2 more task flows and wireframes: the first to find and complete a missing assignment (which I may change to past due assignment or late work), and the second to access yesterdays announcements (which also includes viewing today's announcement). I realized that I can show multiple things with one wireframe by going past the initial screens and showing how to navigate beyond. As I was working on the wireframes I did a lot of trouble shooting. There were many times when I had to completely rethink an organizational concept when I realized it didn't flow well. Another thing I realized was that I want to have the 8 main navigational options always available on screen, so I developed 3 options for that.
Beyond the wireframes I continued to refine my wordmark and logo. I think I am finally getting close to a final solution. I am happy with where it is headed. I continued iterating my visual system and thinking about how to apply it to my deliverables. I will start working out plans for the student materials kit this coming week so that I can apply the visual system to it.
This week I also continued to design my thesis website and decided to leave the 1st one I started and create one with Wix instead. I am much happier with this layout and website. I started to apply my visual system to my DS Chart and Materials Matrix and added them to the new website. https://antscheschlogoctoed.wixsite.com/my-site-1antscheschlogoctoed.wixsite.com/my-site-1
