Designing a learning management system
As a personal project, I took on the following challenge. Teachers have many responsibilities and too little time in a day to get things done. They create lesson plans, teach classes, grade assignments, and need to be available to support students individually. How do you help them get things done more efficiently? How can they spend less time on administrative tasks?
I surveyed a number of teachers about their work experiences. I identified some common concerns:
They have limited time to provide enough feedback
They worry about missing opportunities to engage with students
They want to connect with students who miss due dates or are struggling
Grading is one of the most time consuming parts of their day
A grading web app where teachers can efficiently:
Create assignments and quizzes
Grade assignments and quizzes
View which students are missing assignments
I did multiple explorations. Then narrowed my ideas down to the strongest sets of wireframes.
