International students face many challenges when choosing a college major in America, including cultural expectations, language barriers, and lack of professional experience. This project explores the concept of an interactive system that will help international students overcome these challenges. The system would also be designed to be engaging and user-friendly.

Introduction

Introduction

Introduction

The project explores different ways to help international students adapt and succeed in the American educational system. The concept of creating an interactive tool has the potential to empower their confidence and help them make informed decisions for college.

international students should have the ability to decide a college major that aligns with their values and not societal standards. The scope of the project will range from prospective students (high school graduates), admitted students (planning to switch majors) and post-grads (new graduates).


This is a brief presentation of the case study and a complete version is available upon request.

There are various reasons on why each student chooses a specific major. These reasons can be influenced by culture, society, politics, psychology or finances. Two issues are explored pertaining to international students namely decision making process and challenges they face. Recommendations are also provided as a starting point for the concept development.

  • Some can communicate in English but the language spoken in college is fast-paced and more developed.

  • Language barrier makes these students struggle in coursework and during job interviews.

Visa Limitations

  • Under F-1 American visa, international students can only work on campus a maximum of 20 hours as long as they maintain a full-time status.

  • Working off campus is restricted unless authorisation is provided by the university.

  • These restrictions hinder students from getting experience in internships and research opportunities which are already hard to find.

  • Strict limitations towards international students will impact their readiness for professional work in their careers.

Utilise the systems already used in universities to include features specific to international students. It will reduce costs and prevent “redesigning the wheel” but might be impersonal or difficult for the students to navigate.

A personalised interactive tool suitable that utilises edge devices (mobile and tablets) to help students track their progress. This interactive tool will boost their confidence, improve how they communicate and prepare them for their careers.

Since this is an original concept, there was no initial content inventory for me to work on. In order to have something for the site, I started off with a free-listing session. During this session I tried to imagine and take note of all the things potential users would want to see in the site. With this I was able to come up with several keywords, and I used that as a foundation for the project.

The list was put together by adding content under major categories which were:


  • Homepage

  • Profile

  • Tests

  • Resources

  • Community

  • Settings

  • Education

  • Career


After free-listing, I began putting content together in categories I believed to be suitable for the topics. I then created a mind map to visualise the brainstorming process. After the brainstorming session I was able to clearly decide the location for each item.

I used feedback from a card sort pilot test for me to visualise the overall flow of the site. I was then able to categorise the site as task-based, and it includes news streaming (community & articles), and a dashboard. The goal for this sitemap draft was to have a rough idea on how participants will sort cards in the test.

The pilot card sort gave me a few ideas on renaming some of the items. I also added descriptors to some pre-existing labels to make it easier for participants to sort in the future card sort tests. Some of the changes I made are as follows:


Job Postings > Job Search

Post-grad Coaching > Alumni Coaching

General Advising > Campus employment

Advising Appointments > Appointment Schedule

Discussions > Community Engagement

Before conducting the second IA testing, I decided to make a few changes to the sitemap. I realised that in the last card sort testing and the first IA testing, some items could be added in level 5 categories.


I decided to create new categories and add existing items in them. For example, having only two sections under “Groups/Clubs” namely “My Groups/Clubs” and “Join a Group/Club” will reduce confusion. I also added “Manage Groups/Clubs” as a level 5 category, making it easier for users to find.


I also reworded some of the items to indicate to the user that an action is required. For example, in Career Assessment I changed the test from “View Available Tests” to “Take Assessment Test”.

After running multiple card sorts and implementing feedback, this data was collected from the last card sort testing. The test was a closed sorting and it involved 22 participants. From this test I learnt the following:


It’s important to be clear in the wording to ensure users aren’t confused. Cards that ranked lower in clarity were Connections, Alumni Coaching and Appointment Schedule.


Always provide a time estimate in the beginning for participants to know the entire duration of sorting session. This will help them gauge better the required time.

Takeaways

After working on this project solo for a few months, I came to a realisation that having a team is crucial. A team will facilitates exchange of ideas and also delegation of responsibilities, whereas in this case, I had to do everything alone.

Additionally, when dealing with a new site or content, it is crucial to free-list, use clear and simple wording, and not assume that users will be able to locate certain items on your screens. Pilot testing sessions will help sort out small issues before the actual testing. It is also important to take good notes throughout the testing phases and store them properly. Last but not least, when creating tasks for first-click testing, it is beneficial to include diverse tasks that span to different screens.
