Unimelb Course Search Tool

January 2012

One of the most ambitious projects I've worked on to-date, the goal here was to create the best tool for finding a course that interests you in the world.

This involved working with business experts and starting from scratch to create a bespoke content management system to hold all course data. Following that, we had to design and develop an intuitive interface for the exploration of a huge range of courses.

Throughout this project my role was to lead and guide a small team of developers and designers including Toby Hede, Max Wheeler and Anthony Kolber. It also involved using a really iterative process to explore ideas, develop them and test them to see if they were as effective as we hoped they would be.

The CMS was built using ActiveAdmin and the front-end was constructed using a HAML, SASS and lots of love and attention.
