Learning Management Redesign: A web application to keep students organized while learning remotely.
Amidst a global pandemic, schools across the globe have shifted from the traditional classroom to online learning. However, the sudden shift proves to be difficult for students, teachers, and families alike. Adjusting to a digital platform has proved to be a challenge as students begin to learn what it means to be in control of their own schedules and their own time.
Blocks provides an easier adjustment and solution to this shift. A learning management system designed to keep students organized, motivated, and engaged while learning remotely.
When the world shut down, I along with all my peers shifted from classrooms to computers. My school as well as hundreds of others adopted existing learning management systems to aid in remote learning.
However, after only a couple of weeks, I noticed how disorganized the existing systems were: relaying and finding information was extremely difficult and greatly hindered the learning experience.

All about the details
When it comes to design, I've realized the difference between good and bad is all based on the details. Coming into the project, I was definitely over ambitious, thinking I was going to revolutionize the online learning community, but the process has shown me it is far for difficult than I thought. Even a simple button needs multiple iterations to achieve a desire outcome or action from the user
Less is more
I came into this project trying to simplify the system, only to learn that with less things, comes more thought. Placement and inclusion becomes more meaningful.
