Doctoral program mentors and advisors had no way to efficiently determine the status of their students as they progressed through their program and dissertation. The online user experience team had recently launched a roster tool for general university faculty, so we suggested leveraging the tool for the mentor and advisor teams.
Wireframes proposed the presentation of relevant data in a dashboard pattern, using color to prioritize the students requiring assistance or intervention (“learner names” are masked here for confidentiality).
Clicking a student’s name in the LEARNER NAME column displays an expanded view with additional information and prompts.
Feedback from mentors and advisors was very positive and included improved efficiency and fewer missed milestones.
