Training Resources Landing Page

We’re getting closer to launching our webpage for nonprofit learning resources, designed for anyone concerned with using and making decisions about technology for social change. We appreciate all who shared helpful feedback on our digital page mock-ups. Now, we’ve brought these mock-ups to life in a demo page that hosts click-able and interactive test pages.037vyh9cxepntuy5whho628o9j7eno9d

Sharable and adaptable resourcesvx89mcs5xobyy885y13kg8hcof00nbe8

These nonprofit resources are designed for people to learn and teach with, so we’re uploading them in various file formats (PDF’s, editable tables, templates, and slide shows). We talk a lot about “living documents” at Aspiration— files that continue to change and develop as we use them and as our needs change. ggatapmtvn1o1uha8thzki9herkqo7quWe hope that this adaptability encourages people to make these files their own, and better yet, re-share the materials back to an open knowledge community.jrteen0lunjdmc76la8yphksghdwz848

Collage of Mock-up iterations

We would love for you to be the first to explore these new pages and processes online. Intuitiveness and usability are vital to this one-stop-shop for nonprofit resources. These qualities can only be tested by actual users. We’ve been aspiring to design a page that is informed by the the user’s eyes and expectations, rather than our organization’s assumptions or an internal ‘vision’.6vnnowk7qup0i6vxxjgdg1hgyoylqnyn

This process of user-centered design starts long before going into web development. From hand-drawn paper prototypes, to digital design, and finally to functional webpages, input and inspiration from potential users is the constant presence in our model of tech development. Like the resources themselves, we hope to continue “hacking” the learning resources pages as new user needs and insights come up.

The test pages hosted on the demo reflect weeks of user input and feedback. We hope that continued testing brings us closer to an optimal user experience.x5s7o70old0ytz63zhhbytb9jycuf6m3

Here are a few questions we’re curious about:vh9yiennsw6yb5lqwq8tlxq4vir9jhd4

1. Does the slide show viewer at the center of the page take up too much room? Is it something that you would actually use?e5m6m1qu76du8rfw8ts85bifp37vzlc4

2. Are there too many links to resources? Are the different versions clear and easily accessible?pid8d83fi92xdqrm5bga03uy1o52qj16

3. Do the resource descriptions clearly indicate what you are clicking on?8o8gzvomxj9tsbl9hd070h49drk6omhm

4. Was the webinar link easy to find?jih18k1q85fewsxzxeorwrzb8dkwxl67

We’re very thankful for everyone who has given us feedback so far, and look forward to hearing more!psjgeh95cu44xtr626j0cciqtg8baviq
