website interface design
search interface design
The goal of this project is to create an online platform, where students can easily find and hire private tutors. Students from different levels as well as majors will be able to find the tutors that best suit their needs, as many tutors with a variety of different skills, qualifications, and rates are available in one place. The focus of this project is on the student interface and experience. Several topics are discussed in the literature review, including designing the search user interface, presenting availability schedules, creating lists, messaging, and progress bars. A prototype of the website is created to examine and measure the usability of the proposed design. Usability testing sessions were conducted with eight participants, who were asked to perform a list of five critical tasks in the form of realistic scenarios. The usability test helped to point out some flaws and usability issues. Several modifications to the initial design were recommended to solve those problems.
