// The challenge
To create an online course planning platform specifically for students undertaking a bachelor of design with the aim of reducing planning errors, stress and confusion currently experienced by some students.
// The Scope
12 weeks, 2 researchers/designers, research, develop and test a solution producing a high function prototype
// The problem to solve
Swinburne students are currently running into issues with their course plan if they have come into the course through differing circumstances (advanced standing, tafe to uni, international student.) The current planning system has a lack of interaction and flexibility and doesn’t look at the course in a holistic manner.
My Swinplan is an online solution for Swinburne students planning their course. The planner allows students to plan their way – across desktop and mobile. Allowing agile planning aims to take the stress and confusion out of study plans. Colour coding is used to clearly display Core, major and elective units creating a deeper understanding about course elements.
This project was completed along side Jane Novella, as part of our UX Capstone at Swinburne University. We worked together to complete research, gain student insights, ideate and user tests, with Jane placing her focus on the web solution and my focus on the mobile. The project was taken to the education and development team but is awaiting funding.
