April 2015 saw the ProMe consortia meet in Manchester to review progress against milestones as the project reached the end of its first year. We had a very productive (and enjoyable) meeting where we focused specifically on platform development issues, system architecture & implementation, and then on graphical user interface designs.
For our end-user organisations and their individual users, platform design and creation of the ‘look and feel’ of the ProMe coaching & mentoring platform is vital. Our technical partners presented us with a variety of designs incorporating all the initial user requirements & feedback collected earlier in the project, and there were lively discussions about these designs!
We are looking forward to finalising the front-end platform design and navigation in good time for iterative user evaluations scheduled over the summer of 2015!
