Redesign App

AAU Classes

Functions:
Improve the login, to save the username and password for a faster experience. Clearing unnecessary functions in order to have a user-friendlier experience, for example, the section for “apply to the school today” or “NEWS” slideshow on the main page and move them to bottom navigation. Creating shortcut access for most used functions, such as the shuttle service, the class resources, checking the class assignments and due date and exact time for uploading, creating ‘student only’ class discussion or group study, and having notification for teacher’s notes about the class changes. Shuttle service is provided in the current version, but it is difficult to find, and difficult to use. Adding a location shortcut on the main page and navigation bottom for easy accessibility to find the location of the cafeteria, shuttle pick up, or administrative sections.
 

Design:
Improve the visual design of the app, to make it different from the AAU website. Making the app design more enjoyable for users, having a fun color pallet, and improving the layout to have a clear interface and easier navigation for users to find the functions. Landing page, bottom navigation, slideshow for the latest news. Having a smaller thumbnail picture for persons in a discussion and focus more on the comment they have written.

Low & Medium Fidelity

AAU Classes

In this project, I do the User Experience process for a redesign of this app such as low and medium fidelity of proof of concept that I linked Below. Before low fidelity design, I made 4 interviews with my university-mate to gave me their review of this app and after that, I start to do low fidelity design it means I design so simple version of this app. During low fidelity and medium-fidelity, I did several user testing and after that, I did A/B test to make sure which design is user-friendlier and after that, I work on a high fidelity version of my design is the finalize design for this app. You can see the demo of my design next slide.
