Project Overview

Changing the way information data is generated and shared

Kortext Analytics dashboards provide real-time data which shows how students engage with their key resources. These data sets can help users make informed decisions on curriculum review, measure student engagement and improve retention and progression rates.


Design a database-style dashboard that is as visually interesting as it is intellectually informative.

Research & Planning

Developing insight & empathy

A review of similar database apps was conducted in order to gather empathy for users and learn what type of structure, layout, and functionality is typical of that type of product. In order to improve our product, we needed to identify what worked and what didn't. The user experience and the user interface of their dashboard software are big selling points in the industry. Therefore, we needed to improve the usability of the product.

Identifying Pain Points

The core issues with the old dashboard were the complex architecture of the application and the understandability of certain key features, which prevented the users from extracting maximum value from the application’s offering. There were several problems with navigation through the application, which didn’t necessarily support particular user flows in the application. UI inconsistencies. Confusing layout.


The project began with wireframing. We experimented with a variety of designs for each screen and selected the best one. We were able to begin digitally wireframing right away.

Digital Wireframes

We examined a variety of layouts for each screen in wireframes to determine which layout would create an easy and engaging user experience. Ultimately, we wanted users to be able to view learning data at institution, faculty, programme, module, and book levels, allowing them to compare to sector benchmarks.

Final Design

Designing data that's relevant and relatable

It is possible to improve the readability of information by choosing the right colour. We aimed to achieve a sufficient contrast ratio between the foreground and background in this project in order to improve colour accessibility. Different colour schemes were produced using accessibility tools.

Dashboard Designs
  • ○ Enable educators to focus on specific modules to gain insight into specific student activity.
    ○ Learn from mistakes and improve UI to attract users.Give some spacing on the information.
    ○ Make it easier for users to navigate the application without any confusion.
    ○ Improve colour accessibility
  • ○ Data on learning can be viewed by institution, faculty, programme, module, and book, with comparisons to sector benchmarks.
    ○ Give some spacing on the information.
