Product Announcement: Education Ecosystem UX Improvement

We are excited to announce new viewer experience improvements on our project videos. We are merging over 340 project playlists consisting of over 3000 videos. You will be able to watch and learn from a project in a single long video with subsections and time stamps.

 

These improvements are closely aligned to our recent UX simplification announcements that we recently made on unveiling a new Education Ecosystem mobile app and moving our project videos from our streaming cluster to Youtube.



Improved Viewing Experience on Our Platform

Currently, a project playlist features multiple videos belonging to a single project. This view presents challenges to viewers when tracking their learning progress or when browsing for a specific video. We are now improving this by doing away with the playlist view.

Simplified Viewing Experience

With the new changes, you can now easily browse, access, and watch video projects with just a single click. You will need not keep tabs on how far you have gone in watching different videos of a single project. All are in one video now. 

 

Having merged the project playlists, you will enjoy:

  • A better viewing and learning experience from our projects
  • Better content discovery
  • With a single click, you will access the whole project video and resources



New projects on Education Ecosystem

We continue to add new and exciting projects to our Youtube channel and our platform. Our project creators are coming up with new projects every day to match the project creation requests we get through our channels.

 

This exciting UX improvement and simplification is meant to increase community engagement. 

 

It is also a sign that we listen to our community members, as the initial idea was proposed via our community‚Äôs communication channels. We have only refined it so that it is beneficial to all viewers.
