During my tenure at NVWA, I held a pivotal role in building interactive quizzes for both students and marketing purposes, integrating them into our website. On a weekly basis, I received sets of questions and answers from the content team, where I curated the content, sourced appropriate images for cover pages and questions, and crafted the quizzes. The final step was grabbing the JaveScript code and embedding the each quiz into a dedicated web page, ensuring a seamless user experience.

As we continued to enhance our website and grow as an organisation, it became evident that users desired a centralised hub to access and select quizzes based on their preferred topics. I proposed and contributed to the development of a user-friendly page that provided users with an array of quizzes to choose from, catering to their specific interests and learning objectives.

In addition, I often work with the Operations team to troubleshoot / solve UX issues, create wireframes and more. Early on in my employment I had the opportunity to contribute to the 2021 web design wireframes and mockups. While I didn’t have the final say on the user experience part, I made sure to infuse some design magic, ensuring that everything looked visually appealing and functional.

Overall, it was a gratifying experience to play a key role in shaping our website’s interactive features, making learning more enjoyable for our users. I found so much fulfillment in this aspect of my job that I wanted to delve deeper and explore further possibilities. This desire motivated me to enroll in a JavaScript course, aiming to solidify my understanding of the language and equip myself to take on more web design and interaction projects confidently. The course opened up new horizons, allowing me to pursue my passion and embark on exciting opportunities in the digital realm.

I soon took over the development to speed things up. I estimate that I did about 85% of the building (in WordPress using the theme features plus some additional HTML / CSS) and 95% of the design.

In addition to overseeing and doing most of the development for Outlier’s newly rebranded website, I built several pages within the site based on contemporary Outlier marketing material documents that I designed.

I worked with the team for copy and content, then I created the layout and graphic assets for these white-papers. Once the design was approved, I created pages in WordPress to match the white-paper, so the content would be easy to read and interactive.
