Microsoft transforms the way schools communicate with students
Remember the old days when the teacher would give a homework on paper and you had to hand out a finished paper on a certain day? These days that's long gone, but students still have to juggle multiple apps see their timetable — and still no way to upload homework digitally.
This multi-context app system makes it easy for students to download a school timetable, monitor all school activities, exams and assignments.
The user can see a weekly and monthly view of the timetable and an overview of tasks and exams with event details and associated documents. The application supports homework upload which notifies the teacher when someone uploads a homework.
This project required my expertise in user experience design and user interface design, both of which had to be specifically tailored to match Windows UX and UI guidelines. UI design relies heavily on color coding for semantic linking. Dark green is a color reserved for exams and more urgent tasks while light green is used for other tasks that are not time critical.
