Tables is browser-based touchscreen application that allows collaboration of peers for primarily solving the mathematics problems. Tables aims at breaking the barriers currently faced at the Mathematics Assistance Center by putting it on every student’s tablet or touch screen computers.
Matching existing mental model
- I sketched the paper prototypes using metaphors to match the existing workflow
- The existing system allowed a person to solve the problem on the whiteboard and allow others to observe – the application follows similar workflow
- Students can chat using the chat interface to discuss the problem
Designing the screens
I took the lead to handle the UI design using Sketch since it works well with front-end developer's workflow. Each screen and state were laid out on the separate artboard. After the designs were finalized an interactive prototype was made using the InVision app.
