The Karma Project: Code Less, Teach More

Karma lesson navigation

Filed under: News — christophderndorfer @ 10:29 am

Apart from some work on improving the Chakra design I talked about last week I spent most of my time these past few days working on the lesson navigation. First I took a close look at the current E-Paath user-interface to see which aspects of the navigation work well and which ones don’t work so well.

Next I started working on an early mockup, as to be expected this one doesn’t really look like much:

After experimenting with that mockup for a little while I let some of the other folks take a first look at it. We then had two group brainstorming sessions to toss around different variations of the mockup and some other design ideas. The resulting design proposal looked similar to what you can see on the photo below (minus the coffee mug stain that is):

Yesterday and today I started implementing that design proposal. You can see the current state-of-things in the screenshot below and as always Om’s icons are what really makes this thing look nice. In terms of the navigation structure and details there’s still quite a lot to be discussed and tweaked so we’ll definitely see plenty of iterations of this design in the coming weeks and months…
