Fitch Learning – UX and UI Design Challenge

Fitch Learning – UX and UI Design Challenge On October 2018, I was invited to develop a concept to solve the Topic Tree design issues for Fitch Learning, a fintech company specialised on e-learning courses for the financial market. The Challenge: Redesign the Topic Tree The Issues As a user I cannot see the title of Study Sessions, Readings and Concepts that are not currently selected, so it is difficult to get a quick view of what is covered in this Topic.

As a user I am not able to see how well I am doing (proficiency) in a Study Session, Reading or Concept so I do not know which areas I need to do more work on to improve my proficiency The ‘list of atoms’ that are linked to each concept do not easily represent what is contained inside the concept, and how much work or time I will need to put in to learn that concept. When there are many concepts or atoms I am forced to scroll down the page to see what is selected; when I do this, I can no longer see what Reading or Study Session I am currently looking at as this information is at the top of the page. Users find it difficult to see that there is a ‘Question Bank’ feature that allows them to open up a quiz player and...
