Yuanru Zhang, M.A. in Communication and Education

This paper proposes a smartphone application designed to improve users’ learning experience in online photography courses based on the analysis of the design and strategy of existing online photography tutorial websites. These websites focus on different aspects of photography, yet these websites also encounter various design flaws. The proposed smartphone application offers users photography tutorial and interactive communication platforms. The application introduces one unit of basic photography knowledge and pragmatic shooting technique to the users everyday. On the interactive level, the application provides different platforms for users to upload photos, comment on each other’s work and form learning groups. This design project applies Garrett’s user experience theory to develop the interactive design and information architecture of this Application.
