Data Walls

Education Elements was pursuing a new line of potential product functionality surrounding principal and administrator's use of End-Of-Year and Benchmark exam data.

With the assistance of the data wall, principals are able to tell students about individual students and their progress throughout the year.

Hybrid Learning Management System

I led a small product team through a complete navigation/UI overhaul of our web-based product. This included conducting company-wide "design games", mapping out the information architecture, and developing prototypes. The final design was released in December 2012 and was well received by our clients.
