Making e-learning fun for children enrolled into the IB board
Bringing online education to life by designing a platform that makes learning feel oh so fun!
NijuEDx is an online-first school that provides a new way of learning
for students aged 11-18 years. They provide an experience of
futuristic education using digital technologies at an affordable fee
for students in developing countries. The main aim of NijuEDx is to
drive the students through their own learning journey at their own
pace, place and time.
We got on board with NijuEDx and incorporated design thinking into their platform to design an application that was engaging.
The users belong to developing countries which is why we had to ensure that the application, designs and gamification were visually appealing. Our aim was to be relatable to the different mindsets who would be using the application everyday & design quality educational modules for them.

We collaborated with NijuEDx to make their application a place where
students and teachers look forward to coming. We understood that the
platform was primarily online and learner-driven. If we want the users
to come back, our focus should be on giving them a sense of
self-motivation through our designs.
We came to the conclusion that we needed to branch out from lengthy modules and bring the students a game oriented learning platform to their fingertips. We introduced a new world to the users with adventures that makes them keep coming back.

Understanding the users
Users learning at their own pace through a gamified structure & content approach. It was important to curate a nurturing, trustworthy and engaging experience for different age groups.
The parents would be using the application to keep a track of their child’s progress. They are not necessarily updated with the latest tech trends so it was important to design a seamless experience for them.
These users are the teachers and counsellors that will be using the application to upload content on platforms, get academic reports, assign activities and take live sessions.
The tutors would be using NijuEDx to take one on one sessions with the students. The tutors also respond to questions posted by students and keep a check on dashboards.
Less tech-savvy users. A completely new platform. Varied visual appeal for different age groups.
Interactive user interface. Easy to understand designs. Personalization and gamification.
We made home-schooling
friendly & fun
Paying attention to lessons during homeschooling can be difficult but we turned it into a fun experience through structural and content gamification. When studying looks and feels like a game, it is easy to keep the learners engaged for a long period of time.
We created Luna to help the
Our in-app assistant Luna was designed to interact with students on their journey throughout the application. The idea was to incorporate AI in a way that was friendly, engaging and nurturing. An intelligent and friendly fox, Luna assists students by giving them relevant nudges along with rewards when they perform great in their lessons!
We love simplicity. It is at the heart of our design principles. With NijuEDx, we were introduced to users that
belonged to a completely different cultural and geographical background.
We used a simple and global design language which was successful in creating a connection between the learners and the new application. After all, design is a language understood by all.
Adventurous themes for learners
To make the experience immersive, we curated different themes according to the age groups of the learners. We designed the Forest, Fantasy and Superhero themes. Every theme had dedicated visual elements and colour schemes.
Daily trivia & game zone
We gamified the lessons and modules for the students on the application. With each lesson-related task a student finishes in a day, they level up and unlock exciting rewards. It's a stimulating experience and a win-win situation!
Adaptable mobile designs for learners
Our designs for the platform were also adapted to mobile screens for the users. Our vision was to give the users a seamless and an integrated experience across every device. Convenience for the users was one of our focal points while designing the platform.
Making the application parent-friendly
During user research and interviews, we understood that the parents would be comparatively less tech-savvy. Taking that into consideration, we made sure that the content on the screen clearly communicated the message. The designs for the interface were also simple and easy to understand with visual cues that would guide the parents through out the application.
We made our designs easily accessible for educators
The designs were made keeping in mind the educators who would be using the application to meet, connect and engage with students at every stage. Each screen was designed to be easy, user-friendly and catered to the needs of the educators.
