Redesign: National Park Service Principles, an Online Course

Recently, I was tasked with redesigning the graphic user interface (GUI) for 6 online course modules for the National Park Service (NPS). The redesign has improved functionality, usability, navigation, accuracy, and compliance. I learned a lot about Lectora during this project (Lectora is the software that is used here, at DOIU, to build online courses). It’s so much fun to be at a place where I can learn something new every day. I’m grateful for the team that I am working with here.

I redesigned the following:

  • Color scheme, type styles, guides and layout
  • Tests and quizzes
  • Course intro and exit
  • Infographics, tables and photo treatments

Please see below for before and after screenshots.
