edX: White Label

Originally started by MIT, edX is the premier destination for online learning.

When edX came to me they were looking to create a streamlined version of their site that could be customized by smaller institutions. In many ways this was an ideal project for me. I came on at the start and was able to lead the UX process through to design and handoff to development.

The first step I took was to interview stakeholders and establish the project goals and priorities. Once the scope was set I began to discuss task flows and create wireframes in Axure. Once the wireframes were complete and had been vetted by the primary stakeholders, I established a visual system that embraced the idea of customization and delivered design templates to development.
