Your Agora is a Boston-based startup in education management space that’s building a SaaS product for private language schools. While working with a user researcher, I analyzed customer insights, created user flows for multiple features and user personas, designed a system of interaction patterns, and crafted high-fidelity UI designs. I also designed their new marketing site and helped implement it using Webflow.

Challenge

I was approached by the founders of Your Agora to re-design their existing web app and make it easier for teachers and students to accomplish daily tasks and interact with one another. The main challenge was to distill an existing body of user insights into user stories and re-imagine the UX as well as create a brand new interface for this multi-user platform.

My Approach

I worked closely with the co-founders and a user researcher to organize user stories and create a plan of action to re-design a set of features for two distinct areas of the product - a teacher portal and a school admin panel. In addition to creating user flows and high-fidelity UI designs, I also built a number of prototypes for user testing and designed a comprehensive components library that helped the engineering team implement my work.

Solution

The result of my collaboration with Your Agora was a completely re-imagined web app that makes it easier for language schools to manage their organizations and provide a set of tools for teachers and students so that they can work with one another in a digital environment that’s user-friendly and intuitive.
