Rethinking the Design of College Admission Information Platform

Lesong Jia, M.A. Instructional Technology and Media

Admission Social Network Service (ADMSSNS) is a social network-based college information sharing system, which provides college-counseling resources including counselor and school information for high school students. It aims at building an online learning environment for students to learn how to improve their college application. The information design and user interface structure of Application Module in current ADMSSNS site are inefficient. The paper will rethink the design of college admission information platform incorporating Computer Supported Collaborative Learning theory and Constructivist Learning theory. The revised Application Module will reconsider the information structure of college application in a social network platform. In addition, the commenting system where students can receive advises from counselors will be redesigned by providing clear instructions so that students can own a effective learning experience interacting with counselors and improving their applications.
