Introducing the new Wellesley course browser, here to assist you with your distributions and scheduling needs
Wellesley College provides tools to students to plan their upcoming schedule and put together their four-year-plan. These tools range from an online course browser to a distributions checklist.
The tools that students use to plan out their college classes are scattered across various sites with different experiences. We worked on housing all features in one location.
Managed team of 6 designers, led the design vision, implemented the live site, and assisted in career development conversations with the designers
Wellesley students can search for classes, make a schedule where they know classes don't overlap, and make sure they're on track to graduate with the distributions page.
Plan out your schedule for the upcoming semester. Schedule builder automatically notifies students of overlapping classes.
Students can quickly make sure that they are on track to graduate by seeing which distribution requirement they have fulfilled in a user-friendly grid
View all course offerings
Students can see what courses are offered next semester and can make sure that they fulfill all prerequisites for their classes

My main focus for this project was managing six designers and determining the vision for this new product

The course browser
Was a separate page apart from all these other features.
I had the priviledge of managing a team of six designers (with one wearing an engineer hat as well). We worked to design and implement a web app from scratch and developed new design skills together!
UX engineering allowed for sharp attention to detail and ownership over the entire user experience.
Provide users with feedback when they make mistake or when the system is working.
Building the design library from scratch allowed for using scaleable components.
Beginning to end experience
Designed each step of multi-step flows.
