The aim of the project was to understand the landscape of diagramming in the education scenario, amongst different student user groups and design a solution that would cater to their core diagramming needs. The solution required to organically merge with the actual diagramming flow and maintain a fun and enjoyable core diagramming experience. Since the project was of a completely new type, understanding of the existing product Visio,
was crucial to be able to develop ideas around the product.
The final proposed concept was of a browser-based drawing tool that could be accessible with any internet connection without downloading the app or software. The tool named ‘Figura’ was designed to consider the actual flow of a diagram creation and had the salient features of a data dump space, real time collaboration amongst students and a simplified ribbon toolbar to promote exploration and reduce anxiety of using a digital tool.
