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.sjl1q39dv951e11t7usaa8pwg7tzipi0

Sharable and adaptable resources7ebu5hgukzveh8m88so1yrtt0qa874h5

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. gz57dxqm95sn382hz9hlpz7h5ky20ww7We 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.rqijn5ms7uiu1lcf7miskegm30v4x1we

Working in a user-centered ecosystem7oyagn337vp9907pzvh7evmaq56536i1

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’.ysbff6eb3qcv6c2kw43bkrdrfujtl8d9

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.

Be the first to test our pages236cdikg2u5d4ytb0bkba65r1ojvyyhq

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.nlus9aphrsbmycnmmsd3jv42gu3pjayx

Here are a few questions we’re curious about:5m90pfb1t7q3fqa9ggrjvvy51w97tqbo

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?d7lm5glrp1w6c1nmvocm08pkp24ca9oe

2. Are there too many links to resources? Are the different versions clear and easily accessible?o6qhv4xtdk04no1n2d6kwwm1gb5ow12b

3. Do the resource descriptions clearly indicate what you are clicking on?zmdt2rrcj2mkysfn8izhqijhp250zrgo

4. Was the webinar link easy to find?a3znsx3ep3q0seuowpbg46hfztovm2cm

We’re very thankful for everyone who has given us feedback so far, and look forward to hearing more!av8mc0nig9u9emplfvz74fb4o0klvfyw
