Course Graphic Updates
The professor for a marketing course wanted some of the graphics I made switched out to three suggested ones: app, building with arrows, and mobile phone. Here they are:
Here is the before and after on their graphics:
There were more detailed features that needed to be developed such as an upvote option for students and an edit delete option for students to edit comments and posts they create. The same features are added for professors as well. As for the anon and hidden features, professors can slide to view a student’s name and hide unwanted comments.
We needed a better top-down approach to standardize how to view the information in posts and comments. Chris suggested metadata information at the top, then the comments or post itself, and at the bottom the ability to take action to the posts. It is similar to Reddit threads.
Here are the desktop images the left side is professor view and the right is student view:
Here are the mobile drafts with identical dashboards then the instructor view and students respectively:
Here is the tablet view in the same order as the mobile phone view above:
One feature that I worked on redesigning was the reveal function for instructors to see the student’s name on their end. This is the place holder that was made by Chris:
Here is my redesign of this feature:
The instructor will click the arrow and the name will slide out to the right as so.
The next feature we were missing was the ability for an instructor to hide a comment. So far we only had a feature to hide a post. Here is what I came up with for the desktop version so far:
We also wanted to add features within the inbox on the left where we can see that a post was locked or pinned in the ‘all’ tab. I also merged the unread/read boxes in the bottom right corners to be joined together:
I’ve been working on Chatter with the project managers, Chris, Maddy, and Abriella. It’s been really fun so far. I get to learn a little bit of Vue and did a lot of front-end stuff to implement Abriella’s design. Here are my progress for this week. Although it’s a holiday week, I’m really glad I’ve chosen to work this week, I’ve learned a lot and the work was really fun and exciting!
Today is also the last day of 2020! So much has happened in 2020, and I’d say that overall I’m proud of myself of what I’ve accomplished this year:
Learned React / React Native
Transferred to a major that I enjoy (so far . . . :p)
Learned how to create responsive web designs
Found more classical music to enjoy
Designed classical composers tote bags for a Charity
Learned Liszt’s Sonetto del Petrarca No. 47
Got more flexible in yoga
Here’s a piece of music to close out 2020. Kreisleriana is one of those pieces that is very Schumannesque. The piece is supposedly the visualization of E. T. A. Hoffmann’s eccentric conductor Kreisler. It also features a lot of contrapunctal, dramatic, and stormy passages. The piece also reflects Schumann’s (supposedly) schizophrenic episodes featuring Eusebius and Florestan.
This rendition of Kreisleriana is performed by the legendary Martha Argerich.
