We used multiple approaches to conduct the research and collect data from different stakeholders to understand the problem.
We organized the data by using affinity diagrams that we put them into groups under different themes. The whole process were completed on the Miro board.
After reviewing all the information and data, I started the concept development. Given that there are many potential opportunities to improve the students' learning experience, the very first task to me was to decide where to start?
Considering the students' needs, their current learning methods and main challenges in learning English, I believe helping students to expand their vocabularies is the most important. Building rich vocabularies could help learners in all areas including reading, writing, listening and speaking.
I listed out the HMW statements as the guiding questions for me to develop the potential solutions.
I brainstormed different ideas and put them together to review them one by one. Some of the ideas are not exactly a product but they are the interesting features or concepts that I would like to incorporate them in the product.
I decided to make a learning app specifically tackling vocabulary learning. I stated 3 key directions how I would develop the product:
1. Incorporate with videos
2. Interest- based Learning Platform
3. Mobile friendly (Dictionary + Notebook)
After I confirmed my initial idea, I sketched out the scenarios how a user may use the app in the daily life with some sketches.
After that, I started create the lo-fi wireframes on Figma for prototyping.
Understanding users have different needs in learning English, Quick Flip allows them to select the topics that they are interested in to learn the vocabularies.
The collection page allows users to save the vocabulary list(s) so they can review them anytime.
Once the user finishes one chapter, there will be a small quiz exercise to access if he/she have learnt the vocabularies.
Quick Flip offers flexible learning experience. If the user couldn't find a suitable list in our library, they can create their own list in a few seconds!
In 2021 Summer, I spent time to remake the visual design of the app. I attempted to use a different colour combination and refine the details to make the app visually looks more fun and appealing.
