This project was a learning management system created to introduce students to the kosher living series. This course was designed as a beginner course to instruct students with little to no understanding in the area of kosher eating.
I began the project by mapping out the LMS of the potential courses that we taught within the program.
The graphic below was designed as an advertisement and to be interactive to the online community and a way to access the course.
Once access is granted to the course the student then proceeds through a variety of different assignments as they will gain understanding to the basic ideas of what kosher is and why someone might consider eating kosher.
While designing this course I was faced with several challenges the first is having to add more instruction so that the students would not get lost during the process of knowing where to go and what to do next. The canvas platform is an excellent platform but does hold some challenges for designers who might be expected to provide more background instruction then in other platforms. ie. An example of this challenge might be giving direction to the students in regards to how to access different parts of the platform such as quizzes and discussion boards.
I designed the homepage specifically with the new student in mind and provided an introduction video so that the student might gain a basic understanding of concepts discussed at the course at what the course is meant to cover. The course is meant to address the idea of kosher eating from a very natural health standpoint while still looking at some basic ideas of what kosher is and why one might consider sustaining a kosher lifestyle.
