Pentagon: Online Video-based Learning Environment
Video-based learning environment aimed at reducing students’ anxiety in online learning. See our prototype demo.
Our design was guided by the results of a cognitive walkthrough of a wireframe mockup.
The prototype contains 3 main features: 1)
“chime-in” and “speaker queue” turn taking feature, 2) in-app collaboration in notebook-like
environment, 3) and personalized avatars.
