Lynnette is an intelligent tutor system that helps middle school students learn algebra. The algorithm of the software was top-notch and was proven to be effective to motivate students. However, the tutor needed improvement with the visual system and the user flow.
My team proposed elements such as badge collection as a more engaging methods to motivate students to solve equations. Our design solution was informed by test sessions with 15 local students from grade 5 to 10, interviews with teacher and instructor, and research from academia on factors affecting students' learning outcomes. By the end of the summer, the finalized interface was shipped to developers.
As a product designer, I was tasked to redesign the overall flow and the UI elements for Lynnette. Specifically, I worked on the on-boarding, dashboard, and reports page.
In addition, I was to part in facilitating co-design sessions with the user groups and weekly check-in meetings with the entire team.
Goal for the design team
Katie, Jasper, and I each were assigned to work on different features of Lynnette but worked together as a team to gather and present research insights.
I was specifically tasked to create prototypes for student’s on-boarding experiences, problem selection page, and the dashboard.
Our overall goals were to:
Improve the overall user flow.
Create engaging UI through gamification.
Encourage self-regulated learning.
