Redesign teacher’s profile page with more intuitive and easier to use interface to get more engagement on website.
I was user experience designer and visual designer and ran research in this project.
Tools & Deliverables
- Pen and paper
- User research
Takelessons is a website which help people who want to learn something find a teacher in their area.
This was a test project for takelessons, they asked me to redesign the teacher’s profile to make it easier to understand and help students to find the information that really matters to them. I only had 2 days limit and I didn’t have any information except their website.
You can see a sample of the teacher’s profile here.
Because I had only 2 days for this project, I showed their current page to 2-3 different users and ask them to work with it, I watched them and found some areas which they had difficulties working with interface. Also I asked them what whould be the most important subjects that they look when they want to find a teacher.
The most important factors for users were :
- Other students’ reviews
- Location, Age, Sex
- Hourly price
- Subject that teacher can teach
- Introduction video
They didn’t care for long description of teacher’s profile or their images. So I came up with these sketches and designs.
Before and After Redesign
- Review and user comments were not visible in the old design unless users scroll down to bottom of the page.
- To see the teacher’s introduction video, users have to scroll down of the page.
- Subjects that teacher is trying to teach is not very readable and users cant see level of expertise in each subject.
- Price of teaching subject was not visible until you select a subject and click the action button. It is very small to see and this is an important factor for users.
- Location of teaching is not visible in this design.
- There is no place for subject’s description in this design.
- Users now can easily see important users reviews at top of the page.
- For see teacher’s introduction video users can easily click on video button and video will show up as a popup player.
- Users can easily scan through teaching subjects and see the level of expertise with 3 different bars.
- Price of each subject is easily visible and by changing each subject they immediately see the rate.
- Location of teaching is visible.
- By selecting each subject users can read subject’s description easily.
