Icalia Labs created a user-friendly software that aids students’ learning through a hyper-personalized and flexible education system for Yourney.

Icalia Labs software design team partnered Yourney to create the layout for a user-friendly platform that aids students’ learning through a hyper-personalized and flexible education system.

Yourney’s digital platform provides students an array of co-curricular resources. These resources connect children with educational experiences that help them develop useful skills like communication, emotional intelligence, time management, and compassion, among others.

The Challenge

How can we seamlessly create a software design for a highly-tailored educational service?

The Situation

Yourney provides kids with a distinctive alternative educational model; ergo the technological platform they required to match their unique approach. Yourney offers a 100% personalized program. It was essential to develop a user friendly and attractive software design interface that could help students of all ages develop new skills.

After gathering data from interviews with students and their families, Yourney worked on the co-curricular resources and the project at hand seemed daunting. That’s when Icalia Labs entered the scene.

Our Approach

Yourney’s process began with a Design Sprint process. During this, we pinpointed the courses to include in the platform and defined a concrete development path to follow. The time needed to understand, fact-check, approve, and run an individual roadmap for each course was taking longer than expected, especially when the list of courses kept growing.

After a prototype was made, standardizing steps for a roadmap was critical in order to scale up the service and expand the experience to even more students. This automated software provided users a single digital point of access where all the information could be gathered.

Standardize the data analysis process.

While data analysis was previously done manually, the transition to a digital environment was the first step for future automatization. This highly detailed process had to be defined and documented before its technical translation.

Developing the hyper-personalized student roadmap based on patterns.

After the class-matchmaking and the skill set of every student prioritized, the students’ path was defined and created a future reference for other students. The classes, labs, co-ops, guided visits, and other learning opportunities at disposal were selected based on the students’ purposes and skills.

The Results

The final product allows both users and admin to reduce process and time waste during a highly detailed data collection.

  • Reduced the time to deliver a hyper-personalized student’s roadmap from 1 week to 3 days tops.
  • Pattern detection and skill prioritization allows admins to recognize students' preferences thus expanding educational and business relationships with other players.
