Learning Commons Website Redesign

Our team worked intensely with supervisors, co-workers and a multitude of campus stakeholders to completely redesign the learningcommons.ubc.ca website. This involved ripping apart the previous architectures and re-envisioning a new, more intuitive framework backed up by user testing and analytics in an effort to help students learn better. The rollout phase entailed working closely with campus partners to ensure their needs were fulfilled within this new design and generating a buzz on the various campus social networks.

UBC’s Global Citizenship Program

September 2009 – December 2009
