Versal Course Creator
UX & User Interface Design
Merging Two Environments
Versal is a course creation app that allows teachers and corporate trainers to build online learning materials for their students.
Traditionally, the course management features have always lived in a separate environment - hidden away from where the user does the actual course creating.
Our challenge was to fold those management features into the course creator, so that users no longer need to bounce back and forth between two separate environments.
The solution we arrived at is a layered panel at the left of the course content area. This houses primary actions such as publishing, as well as in-depth analytic features such as learner progress.
