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.ku6gqkdqrwue0z6esyae75to9shyp62z

Sharable and adaptable resources5utd4b09fb0nudjpdgl5ftrg5x1a9005

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. zp54qsudvnvaaaizsf2g0pro64oue4v4We 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.9vksflw89w7mw5r2yr8vk57dx7t7mahm

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’.6o3prijj0g38sd4orfweyuhb4q9htztq

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.

Here are a few questions we’re curious about:79sb8yiqlm0abwim2wap5ji2doq3acl7

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?fd4fohsyzh6d8qvyy4dstw8hjuk79ufe

2. Are there too many links to resources? Are the different versions clear and easily accessible?38klbdzaylahywsgt2dw9ddt12tryghs

3. Do the resource descriptions clearly indicate what you are clicking on?mjbleg1xr9x9lm6wdal6s48jrtrisdm4

4. Was the webinar link easy to find?ehff34vgesj7w81ejfelm9ng0j9cvlz0

We’re very thankful for everyone who has given us feedback so far, and look forward to hearing more!kudl8z2advntmxydedx7l8ss0rhe37id
