Challenge

How do you create a seamless student experience across multiple services and channels (physical and digital)? How do you support the unique needs of the adult student population? 

My Role

As a freelancer, I was brought on to support the workshop design and workshop facilitation with groups of students and staff, as well as the synthesis of the research outcomes into conceptual mockups and journey maps.

Outcome

Several ideas for improving the student experience were voiced and it was through a series of discussions, rapid prototyping sessions, and drawing from group insight were we able to drill the ideas down to a few core concepts. They included an integrated back-of-house system for seamless student support across multiple departments, a way to easily compare and track individual degree progress, and a personalized dashboard to quickly access what information is most relevant to each student.
