Jon Fay from 2U took us through the latest version of the designs for the new Studio Home page (feel free to leave comments and questions on the file). A few things we discussed:
the UX for filtering and sorting courses,
when course end dates should be displayed and when they might not be necessary,
what type of content is searched when the user enters text into the search bar.
Santiago from EduNext ran a mini usability test with Cassie from OpenCraft. The test focused on 2 of the main user flows within the Content Tagging MVP:
One: the flow in which content authors add tags to units,
Two: the flow in which users search the course outline. The test lead to some interesting realizations! EduNext will be conducting the same usability test with a handful of superusers, and @Ali Hugo will then update the wireframes for the MVP accordingly.
Mobile Working Group
Since our last update, we have kicked off a number of projects in development and discovery. During our weekly meetings we have reviewed a number of documents as well focused on identifying the gaps between the edx mobile app and the new open edx mobile apps. Additional details below per project.
Mobile API Updates - #fc-0031-mobile-api-migration-axim-raccoongang
Development has started to update edx-platform and other services with the right API changes necessary to run the new open edx mobile application. (Approximate delivery date end of September.)
Quick Win Feature Gap Project - In Consideration
In consideration is a project that should close 13/38 of the feature gaps identified by edx mobile team relative to new open edx mobile apps. A few improvements to video experience (5/13), app upgrade messaging (3/13) and others are included here. Development sizing and product / design definition are in progress currently - https://openedx.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/OEPM/pages/3851780097
Learning Site Selection - In Consideration
In queue for mobile development consideration, should allow for providers to build single apps for multiple open edx sites / clients to lower cost to offer a mobile experience to learners - https://openedx.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/OEPM/pages/3781918782. Initial set of product requirements and design mockups available on project page for review.
Other projects in consideration that are earlier in the requirement definition process listed below:
