Results and Takeaways
Rather than targeting a niche market, the goal for YouTube Learning is to be accessible to all age ranges and learning abilities and focus on facilitating human interactions.
While we ended up not including a Kid's section (due to the existence of YouTube Kids), we were able to achieve the goals for YouTube Learning. We included closed captions and lesson transcriptions for students as well as personalized dashboards, multiple communication channels, and utilized a personable tone.
Working with another UX/UI designer without taking full control and responsibility over different sections was interesting, but luckily we worked well together. We were both willing to offer constructive criticism and not agree with everything the other suggested for the sake of agreeing. In a bigger team, this system would probably not work as wel, but it helped us work through problems together and come up with better solutions.
