Introduction

Doug and Mayel from the MoodleNet team spent three days (Weds 19th to Fri 21st September 2018) with Kayleigh, Sam, and Rob from Outlandish. This was follow-up work to the Design Sprint we did back in May 2018, and to UX Milestones 1 and 2.

What we aimed to achieve

We had an ambitious agenda for the workshop:

  • Allow Sam, the front-end developer Outlandish have assigned to this project, to get up to speed with MoodleNet
  • Help define and scope front-end deliverables
  • Decide on the layout/look/feel of both the desktop and mobile web versions of MoodleNet
  • Create a draft style guide (in code)
  • Develop a basic app (skeleton repo in GitLab)
  • Filed GitLab issues for (at least 1+ month of) post-workshop front-end development
  • Agree on the toolkit (incl. libraries) we’re going to use

Outputs

There is a GitLab board to track issues from both this workshop and forthcoming front-end development work.

What we achieved

During the workshop itself, we managed to:
