CCA Portal - Intranet
CollaboratorS : ETS Web & mobile team
Role: UX/UI designer and information architect,
timeline: 2016 - 2018
The Portal is CCA’s intranet for current staff, faculty and students to find and discover information and content via elastic search.
01 The Challenge
At CCA, California College of the Arts, students, staff, and faculty struggle finding current and relevant information. CCA uses many different platforms ranging from what software is taught in the classrooms and what resources are provided by the school.
Our challenge was to create an intranet for the CCA community to house all the important content that was easily accessible and up-to-date.
We researched what current art schools were doing for inspiration on the front-end experience as well as exploring different django templates for the back-end.
After establishing our roadmap, we started creating basic pages with widgets that catered to many different stakeholders, and launching simple pages.
04 Testing & Iteration
After refining simple pages, we created tasks for students to complete using the Portal. Testing the navigation, planning for their next semester and finding staff and faculty in the people directory. (Iteration - Courses, Shops, Transportation and More)
Through this iterative process, Portal has evolved with new features, more content and better ways for students to navigate and explore information.
