Project Introduction
This research project is about redesigning Tutor Orial, an online tutor teaching website. We analyzed and improved on the original error cases and redesigned it with a clear flow and functionality. This website is a professional platform that offers students of all levels of education the freedom to choose online courses.

Heuristic Evaluation
Focusing on usability issues & flow

I did a heuristic analysis of the original website through a class discussion

I collected feedback for each page and summarized the problems that the website had.

During the Heuristic Evaluation process, I have learned the importance of flow clarity from cases with problems. The importance of complete and clear information.

Adjacent Industry Audit
Familiar interaction patterns & opportunities

I browsed the official websites of large companies and analyzed the interactive paths and design advantages in the websites

Based on the analysis, I believe that a simple and straightforward design helps to provide a convenient and accurate user experience.


Brainstorming & Sketches
Design Goal: Clean, Simple, Straightforward

Low-Fi Prototypes

There are the two paths, and they differ mainly in program order and site functionality.


  • Users have to login or register after browsing the login screen. Next, they will be able to filter the courses and browse the general information of the teachers. After completing the payment, they will receive a confirmation letter. The feature here is to have a personal account center where users can control messages and course adjustments.


  • After browsing the login screen, users do not have to login or register. The login or registration will be placed before the payment page. They can filter the courses as a visitor, browse the general information about the teacher and the teacher's details. The feature here is a shopping cart where users can add courses and double check if this is the result they want.
