Course Registration System
I spent a month designing and prototyping a course registration system for mobile platforms. This system reorganized the original CMU registration system and combined the searching site and registration site together into an integrated system.
This is a school case study to evaluate, propose, and prototype ideas for a digital system/product.
The project is a UI/UX design challenge, and is done solely.
Design an integrated course registration system for CMU.
The system includes course searching, calendar planning, and student academic information for course registration purposes (registered, waitlisted, dropped).
This system is designed for mobile platforms.
Currently, course searching and course registration are divided into 2 websites, students are not able to look up courses while planning courses and manage registrations in an integrated system.
There are too many excessive pages and entrances for course registration and calendars for users to manage and look at.
The information for registration purposes is not divided properly.
Course schedule / registration info
Highly integrate course searching, semester calendars, course planning, and academic information together into one system.
Optimize user experience in the course planning process, registration process, and searching process.
Reduce excessive information and pages in the original websites, and reorganize information segments.
Original System workflow:
New System workflow:
It was challenging to redivide information segments and choose what to display in this new system, especially since there aren’t many competitive products in the market.
For further development, I will focus on adding features that the CMU registration website doesn’t have, like adding course registration probabilities for each course.
I will also consider developing a website demo for this system as well because many students still prefer using the website to complete the registration process.
