Abstract

The objective of the Work My Way project was to make a website enabling college students to discover productivity tools for them. Taking into account previous work on the project, the team upheld the ideals of accessibility and universal design for learning. Indeed, a primary goal of this IQP was to ensure that the final product was usable by college students of all ability levels and needs, while dismissing associated stigma. Initially, the team researched principles of Universal Design and performed a competitive analysis, which revealed the originality of Work My Way. To ensure the product was designed with consideration for user preferences, three rounds of focus group testing were conducted, assessing the viability of the product idea and mockups.
