As a class, we were challenged to create a better version of CUNYfirst website.
CUNYfirst is a website that CUNY students use to access all of the needs of a typical student, such registering for classes, viewing your schedule and even keeping up to date with the current events of CUNY colleges.
Although CUNY has created a website that is accessible to all of their students the website itself is cluttered and outdated. During my surveys 4 of the 6 people I interviewed complained that the site made simple tasks like logging in and paying your tuition difficult, agreeing that they would prefer a simpler interface.
“When you log-in to CUNYfirst the amount of information that you see is overwhelming”
“CUNYfirst makes it difficult to complete the simple task like paying your tuition”
After conducting interviews I concluded that creating a mobile application would be the best route due to the overall convenience it would provide the users.
I have attempted to create a CUNYfirst Mobile application that will always allow users to have the functionality of the CUNYfirst website but in a simpler format.
