The complexity of varied user types

User funnel for a specific functionality at Tiching

I collaborated for around 6 months with the Product department of Tiching doing the UX for some of their site's functionalities. It is a highly structured site, targeted at 3 main personas: students, teachers and students' family members. Inside those profile groups, there are some characteristics that also needed to be taken into account, such as: the students age group, what school they are enrolled, the percentage of completion of their own profile, etc. Depending on which profile and sub-group the user belongs to, different information would be displayed.

Starting the process

The whole process would start with the Product Department analyzing the needs for that specific feature. Then we would create the user funnel (image above), unfolding each user's possible navigation and the info he/she would be able to see. Finally a wireframe of the pages or interactions involved in that feature would be developed.

After a second round of analysis and eventual adjustments to the wire frame, the design team would start to add colors, shades, icons, etc to the idea.

Mainly UX, sometimes UI

My main task while collaborating with Tiching was related to UX, but sometimes I did some UI. One example is the Calendar and Task for internal functionality known as "Classes" (images below).

I was responsible for the UX design of some of the website's functionalities.
