The mobile app is an essential tool for busy working adults at University of Phoenix. We redesigned the existing app that better aligned with the brand, improved the navigation, added a dashboard, and explored concepts for our discussion threading.
Discussion threading was one of the most complained about interactions on the mobile app. The challenge was navigating a thread that could be stacked up to 7 levels deep. Students would quickly get lost as they tried to find specific posts.
I developed 4 different motion concepts around the idea of a mini-map to see which concept allowed students to most easily navigate the deep thread structure.
