What: Samsung School is an education platform for schools available for Android tablets and as a standalone PC application. It is developed entirely by Samsung R&D Poland. Every student has a tablet. All tablets are controlled by a teacher's tablet.
My role: UX/UI design, User research. Designing new features for upcoming release based on feedback from VoC, business and end users. Rapid prototyping in Sketch/inVision. Leading Research Program in one of near-Warsaw schools.
Below left: from Courses view teacher can start a lesson (4 predefined courses), start quick lesson or create new course. Below right: Library view allows file management. Selected folder "Science" corresponds with the "Science" lesson on the left.
Majority of use includes tablet devices. But especially for teachers, browser and native Windows app solved issue with creating new lessons. While during a lesson tablet is the best tool, copying, editing photos and text is still easier on a PC. Teachers were creating lesson content on browser and standalone application. Which means I had to design part of the functionalities for 3 platforms.
