Playbase Training

Pushing boundaries in online learning for an ambitious Edinburgh-based charity.
Pushing boundaries in online learning for an ambitious Edinburgh-based charity.

Starting Point

Starbit were approached by Designers On The Run (DotRun) to become consortium partners on this ambitious digital project. DotRun developed an extremely eye-catching and versatile brand identity providing a fantastic starting point for Starbit to begin the design of a website and app. The key requirement for the website was a set of online learning functions including web-based exercises, resources, submissions, grading and class interaction.

Solution

It was critical that the website and integrated learning functions were easy to navigate and understand for users with limited prior web experience (as these users made up a large part of the target audience for the training courses run by the client). The homepage was designed as a hybrid of the modern single-page scrolling site and the more traditional multi-page site, with snippet sections on the homepage to introduce the more detailed content contained therein. A unique two-tier horseshoe menu system was devised to allow the learning functions to sit neatly below the main menu when a user was logged-in. The app, which features a range of play activities, acts as a promotional tool to highlight Playbase’s offering.
