Transforming comprehensive lab study to digital
Redefine a Digital Product
Pearson Education was intent to take their commitment to digital learning beyond static digital documents. Beginning with the sciences, they wanted to conceive a digital application that could provide a lab-like experience to students where they could interact with digital experiments and connect those experiments with learning curriculum and measurement.
Our solution began with a desktop-solution - supporting Flash-based animations that were created for lab-experiments. A combination of an organization schema as well as an integrated experiment + contextual testing would provide a rapid learning environment. Simplicity was key in supporting usability and not allowing the interface to get cluttered with functions. We designed much of the interface to be hidden until users took action; and then provided secondary options directly on the experiments "stage."
