The current Seattle Public School portal system consists of over five separate portals. Parents and students are tasked with managing several login credentials, access codes and links. The system in place lacks organization, structure and good usability.

Our goal was to redesign the Seattle Public School portal system, to help users complete school-related tasks with ease.

The result of our UX research and UI Design is Binder, the single replacement and improvement of the five+ Seattle Public School portals.

The Solution

Design Process & Methods

Current System Analysis


Analysis Strategy

Prior to conducting user interviews, we analyzed the current system in place to gain an understanding of the different portals. Our goal with the system analysis was to learn what function each portal serves, what tasks are completed where, and how the portals connect to each other.

We analyzed “Schoology”, “The Source”, “Clever”, “Padlet” and “Office 365”.
