ZEUX Top 3: Key ingredients for WhiteHat Jr’s UX Transformation
UX best practices were used to systematically enhance the navigation, content, presentation, and interaction pillars of WhiteHat Jr’s digital experience. As a first step, ZEUX simplified the trial class registration form, tech setup and class scheduling process that laid down a solid foundation for the UX transformation effort.
WhiteHat Jr. caters to one of the most challenging target audiences – kids aged 6 till 14. To ensure high levels of engagement and class completion was a big challenge. ZEUX integrated gamification strategies with WhiteHat Jr’s state-of-the-art courseware to deliver a potent blend of highly engaging online learning.The badges, hat levels & leaderboards all came together to form a holistic engagement framework that led to an increase in student & parent engagement ultimately leading to an increase in lifetime value.
ZEUX employed specific persuasion design techniques to drive deep and accelerated learning. For instance, specific badges were introduced into the classroom interface that teachers could use to reinforce qualities such as curiosity, creativity, and perseverance. Student progress was designed to be a combination of not just the number of class taken but also the quantity and quality projects completed.
Commenting on the project, Saurabh Gupta, Co-founder, ZEUX Innovation, said, “As an experienced outcome driven UX agency, we are always offering solutions to empower clients and achieve their business goals. To work with WhiteHat Jr’s team was a highly rewarding experience simply because they gave us a clean slate to build upon and backed us all the way. It was a partnership of two companies who are equally passionate about their businesses and are willing to listen to each other. What followed was pure magic – evident by the numbers and client delight.”
Adding to the view, Hemal Gathani, Co-founder, ZEUX Innovation, said, “It is one of our showcase projects, which not only made learning fun and consistent among young kids; but more importantly, one which led to boosting investor confidence into the vision of WhiteHat Jr.”
