At the time I worked at the startup Leeruniek (2014-2015) we build a web-based dashboard application for primary school teachers in the Netherlands. It helped teachers to detect pupils with spelling difficulties at an early stage by analyzing their daily spelling exercises. The dashboard provided teachers with useful insights in a blink of an eye.
As a head of product I was responsible for the conducted research (to clarify the need of the teachers), the early stage prototyping and the UX/UI design of the application. I closely worked together with our developers to ensure the end result was spot on. Next to that we continually sharpened the company and product strategy.
Why I think this is a cool project?
- it is a project that brings primary education to a next level.
- I had to bring all my skills to the table; doing research, making designs, shaping a strategy, satisfying investors, etc.
- every day was a new challenge!
