I joined EVERFI to help research and design a new all-encompassing platform for the company's various lines of business: corporate compliance training, higher education prevention training, financial education for employees, K12 courses, and bank financial literacy volunteer events. Each context has its own needs, but the core is to serve up content (courses, surveys, and videos) to learners with appropriate access controls and logging of learner responses, progress, and policy acknowledgments.
Drawing on my experience as a teacher, I pushed for the project to center around assignments. Most edtech platforms center around the learner browsing for content, but our actual customer was the organization assigning training and nudging learners to explore content on their own.
I was involved for over two years, from early brainstorming to migration and onboarding for hundreds of customers.
