Features: Video player, comprehension, vocabulary, and
dictation games, lessons page.
We took the data from our questionnaire, interviews, and user tests, and aggregated it in order to find patterns.
In order to address both onboarding and navigation clarity, we decided to supply a comprehensive faq page with links offered in welcome emails throughout the trial period.

I coded these welcome emails so they are responsive.

I utilized progressive disclosure on the design by offering a series of dropdowns based on user questions. I then added relevant copy in conjunction with visual screenshots of each use case. Similar to a map key.
Users:
Personas developed from
10 informational interviews and
465 questionaire responses across 6 learning products.
Based on our response questionaire, users appreciated the extra resources but were overwhelmed by the density of information.
Based on google analytics, our onboarding email provided an effective way to funnel new users to our FAQ resources.
For the next iterations, we focused on making information visually accessible across our entire user demographic.
For our second iteration of the onboarding process, we included an introductory resource email and utilized progressive disclosure, by breaking content up under a series of dropdowns.

Instead of presenting all information at once with a key, I created SVG animations that presented information sequentially. We created animations across all language translations including English,Spanish, German, French, Italian, Chinese, and Portuguese. Based on interface settings, visitors view animations in their language of choice.
Moving forward, we are replacing all static onboarding images with SVG animations in conjunction with the video tutorials.

We've also released a user dashboard experience. This allows users to set goals, measure progress, and follow new initiatives.

Finally, in order to improve consistency within the site, I've drafted logo improvements, graphics, animations, landing pages, and interface updates. All material is crafted in line with Yabla's brand guidelines. I've also drafted marketing graphics for the Google Play store and iOS store app.
We also provided a video tutorial tab in order to walkthrough Yabla’s tools.
This allows us to build on information.

Roundabout

Yabla is an excellent tool for dedicated learners because it provides authentic content and exercises that greatly improve fluency. It strengthens conversational understanding, dictation, and vocabulary. Data shows that many users aren’t revisiting videos or diving deeper into captions through the Scribe activity. A large portion of users binge watch content without these helpful tools.
How might we instill Yabla language learning as a habit, and adapt our tools and content, to make users successful regardless of their level of dedication?
Yabla fosters language immersion through engaging video content and learning games. Yabla offers 6 languages and thousands of videos.

We took the qualitative data from our questionnaire, interviews, and user tests, and aggregated it as a team in order to find patterns.
In order to address both onboarding and navigation clarity, we decided to supply a comprehensive faq page with links offered in welcome emails throughout the trial period.

I coded these welcome emails so they are responsive depending on view.

Yabla is an excellent tool for dedicated learners because it provides authentic content and exercises that greatly improve aspects of fluency. This includes conversational understanding, dictation, and vocabulary. Data shows that many users aren’t watching the videos multiple times or diving deeper into captions through Scribe. A large portion binge watch content without engaging using these helpful tools.
