Thesis Topic: Middle School Virtual Learning
Goal: help middle school children adapt, navigate, and learn in the online learning environment.
Audience: Middle School Students & Teachers
This week I really dug into the different controls and pop-ups that will help the student navigate through the Virtual Learning Platform. As I move through each screen I have realized that there are more buttons and controls needed and space needs to be made, so there has been a lot of tweaking and fine-tuning. As I work through this process I am moving into the prototype so I can see how each screen operates and get it ready to present to my user testing group early next week. I will be continuing to work on the various pages and elements thought the coming week.
In thinking about how my thesis project could help middle school students across the country to better adapt to attending school virtually or within a hybrid classroom. I would love to continue to develop the platform and eventually present it to schools for distribution.
The most useful and interesting thing I have learned this week is that the more in-depth I get into building this learning platform, the more I realize it entails. There are a lot of fine details that can make or break the effectiveness of the system!
