Easing teachers into remote learning during the pandemic

Lisa, an instructional designer for a DC charter school district, came to us weeks before the start of the 2020 school year with a mock-up of her ideal learning dashboard for math students grades 1-4. We turned it into a reality and infused the experience with personality thanks to some animal mascots. To make management easier, we created an editing interface tailored to the structure of her data. We modified the LMS’s native “drip date” function to clearly display upcoming lesson dates and allow Lisa to easily schedule lessons. Finally, we created a system that would allow teachers to view additional resources that are invisible to students on the lesson pages of the LMS to help guide them in administering the curriculum, and made sure to exempt teachers from lesson lockouts before the drip date so that they could access the included materials ahead of time.
