A public benefits corporation created cost-effective kits to bring space-based research to kids’ homes, classrooms, or afterschool programs. These experiment kits provide the opportunity to explore the exciting research on the International Space Station. The following request draw Corpsoft.io’s attention:
“We are seeking a self-motivated and talented Web Developer to develop an online portal to engage students and provide secure access to data resulting from research on the International Space Station.”
DreamKit project aimed on building an educational community where space-based research and space-based projects will be available to all students, from primary to post-doctorate, to the International Space Station and beyond. The portal aimed on providing a knowledge base and community space for sharing research information.
After discovery phase and project scoping we defined project focus to be on UX for kids and students: those who will be consuming the content during their existing research.
In order to understand if we met project priority and kept focus right, we reached out to client’s direct customers in order to gather some feedback and insights.
After the second sprint, when core scaffolding has been delivered, we set up a series of usability testing sessions and user interviews. The audience was different, including students, teachers and parents. We were able to gain valuable insight to polish UX during sprint 3 and launch a convenient tool for the audience.
Process of work
We used pure Scrum here. Scrum is a framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value. Scope was split into 3 sprints and kicked off. Iterative development with frozen sprints scope allowed hitting the timeline perfectly.
Tools used: Jira, Zoom, Upwork chat, Google spreadsheets.
