How can we increase student engagement on our online learning application?
Everest approached CodeLink seeking a team that could collaborate with their internal team to provide consultation on product design and technical implementation for their online learning tablet application. The team then worked on implementing new flows to increase student user engagement.
Everest contracted with CodeLink to provide an embedded team consisting of a Technical Lead, Product Designer, and Front-end Developer. These team members worked directly with Everest staff to enhance the existing product.
CodeLink worked as an embedded team for Everest Education for 4 months.
CodeLink collaborated with Everest subject matter experts to understand current user behavior and design flows. CodeLink then created new design flows with prototypes to test with students. Once flows were tested and designs were complete, CodeLink worked with the existing codebase to implement the new front-end functionality. To engage students, CodeLink developed a badge and points system to reward activity. CodeLink also created a more visual online learning experience, where students can collaborate on task cards, upload recordings, post group messages, submit their class work, and view the completion status of their personal and group work.
