Overview

The project started as research assistantship which was later converted to the internship. It was focused on designing a social-emotional learning platform where teacher and student can collaborate and the teacher could track the progress of student’s social and emotional learning. Along with that I am currently working on the rebranding of Shakti Warrior’s home page and helping the team with getting their ideas out in the world.

My Role

I worked with two other designers in the beginning and CEO, Lane JaBaay of the company and helped her in bringing the idea to fruition. When the prototype was designed I did user testing for the initial feedback and then worked with developers at Edusource and delivered the assets.

The problem

How does teacher measure social-emotional learning impact on their students?

SHAKTI Warriors is a social-emotional learning platform for students where they complete interactive activities increase their social awareness by changing their behavior for good and level up their superhero. Using Shakti Warrior’s admin panel, teachers can add or remove students from their class, and that was it!

Redesign & business goals

Confusing Information architecture.
One of the major redesign goals was to fix confusing information architecture of the admin website.

Complicated onboarding process
How might we make it easier to get teachers on board and increase user retention?

Teachers were maintaining the student data on papers and excel sheets.
How might we provide more efficient data management service?

Who are we designing for?

Redesigning onboarding process

In addition to teachers, we also had roles of super admin, superintendent, and principal. In phase one of the project, we decided to focus on teacher’s role which will solve the majority of the problems release it for the teachers and then move to the district level and principal level.

Old onboarding process was designed to verify the authenticity of the schools. But it blocked the way through which new user sign up. In the new system, although connecting school with the teacher is manual work, new users can easily sign up for the system.

Teacher Dashboard

Teacher’s dashboard gives an overview of the class progress, how much time students are spending on SW site, how is class progressing on different CASEL scale and student’s engagements.

Student list

A consolidated student’s list of class where the teacher can see all the students, their profile, their superhero level and modify their points based on their activity reports. And can also add notes and see existing notes added by other teachers about the student.

Lesson Plans

List of all the lesson plans at one place and teacher can mark complete once the lesson plan provided by Shakti Warrior platform is complete. They can also rate the lesson plans or repeat any lessons.

Sneak peak

Although district level and principal level pages are going to be designed and released in the next phase, these are exclusive visuals just for you 😉

Principal Dashboard

Principal can track their classes’ progress on their dashboard.

Superintendent

Superintendent can see the progress of all the schools and their classes in one page. This overview report saves their precious time. The yellow bar indicates the ideal progress of the class in the current week and blue bars indicate their actual progress.

Future work

After working on teacher dashboard, next step is to work on principal and superintended level dashboards to be launched in next dev release. I am also working on new homepage design of Shakti Warriors HQ, which I can talk more in person as it is still not released publicly yet.

Learnings

Prototyping your way to create impact:
Being on the table with the people who are decision makers and full of ideas, made my life as a designer a bit difficult. However, a quick prototyping of all those wonderful ideas presenting back and reiterating over it again and again till everyone is happy is one of my key takeaways from this project.

Working with developers:
Being worked as a developer before helped quite a lot in the ideation phase and in asset delivery. The ideas I presented to the table were implementable and I kept all the assets ready ahead of the time anticipating developer needs.
