This week I spent some more time studying different virtual learning platforms and social media platforms to see how I can combine the best features and elements to create a space that would cater to the needs and interests of the middle school student. I began designing the social media portion of my learning platform, referred to as Connect. I shifted my screen size again because I realized that there were too many restraints working in the iPad size and I wanted to get in all the elements before adjusting to the iPad. I am designing based on Chrome Book measurements as that is what most school students have. I also made adjustments and refinements to the other areas of the platform based on feedback.
