Thesis 3: Week 3
This week I decided to dig in and try to complete as much of the social media portion of the learning platform as possible. I want to have the learning platform completed next week to be able to make revisions and have it ready for user testing in weeks 5 and 6. I had hoped to complete the virtual classroom as well but had a personal setback as there was a death in my family this week so I lost a few days due to dealing with that.
My Materials Matrix was also approved by William Culpepper and I attached the copy with the checked-off items in today's submission.
The walkthrough video that I have included is for the website. It will be updated after I finish the final screens. I will make a walkthrough of the learning platform next week.
Thesis 3: Week 2
This week I updated my Materials Matrix and discussed with William Culpepper a few changes. I removed the launch kit and added an awareness campaign with social media posts, an email, and a print ad. I am awaiting William's final approval of the Materials Matrix as I had to update the number of items under each deliverable as well as the total number of screens.
I began designing Instagram carousel posts with 3 screens each. I created 3 options this week.
I also continued to update the social media connect screens of the learning platform.
Next week I plan on making the remaining pieces of the awareness campaign, along with writing body copy for the emails. I will also finish the social media connect function screens building out creating a post and viewing other threads.
Thesis 3: Week 1
This week I began by looking at the social media portion of the OctoEd virtual learning platform. I added an option to minimize the chat bo, a notification icon and 4 options for the news feed: scroll down, scroll down with boxes, scroll side to side with comments on right, and scroll side to side with comments on bottom. I would love some feedback on what everyone thinks is working best and fits with the style of the platform best. Next week I plan on building out more of the social media functions and adding to the process journal.
