We are, LGTV Studio, a team of User Experience Designers studying how to maximize student communication and improve online class community. Our goal this semester was to build upon the current Canvas Profile feature, in a way that is user friendly, and would encourage students to connect and network.
Robust Canvas Profiles is an improvement of Canvas’ current social tool. Our team has implemented various features for students to connect and network with one another. We believe that this tool helps them understand their classmates better and improves their desire to interact with the online community.
Of our redesigns, this submission addresses the additional Interests and hobbies section. Currently there is only a Bio section which can feel overwhelming for students to fill out. An interests and hobbies section can feel more inviting and exciting for students. With this submission, we hope to give students more creative freedom to express themselves and connect with others who enjoy the same things.
We have attached a presentation with interview notes, reflections, and a few photos to document our static prototype redesign.
