The main challenge was to come to a common understanding with the client's product development team. Through Think Design's UCD process, we engaged in several activities including stakeholder workshop, desktop research, brainstorming, rapid prototyping among others. In a few week's time, the teams came to a common understanding of the product, its features and User Experience concepts. Since the platform aims to certify its users for the problems they solve in their courses, there was a clear need to ease user journeys, build in authenticity, demonstrate credibility and make the web based platform very robust.
Data analytics is complex; and for users who come here to learn, it could be overwhelming to see too much information at the very first time. We made progressive revelation thereby making the experience easy on users' minds. Given that its users pursue this as a part time activity, there are clear indicators of users' journey in a timeline format. In order to make the marketplace model successful, we need to consider experience of course creaters as well. Consolidated efforts went into making a course creator's experience delightful, as they are as important as the users who consume these courses.
Analyttica TreasureHunt went live into the market in December 2017. Within a few weeks of launch and with no marketing spend, the platform received thousands of user signups. This itself is a manifestation of the success of good design. The product recently received U.S Patent (Patent number: 9886867) Due to its increasing user base, there as more courses being created and uploaded as we speak.
