Iqra College Ilorin — Admission Form Redesign
Roles: Product Designer, UX Reseacher
Project Duration: 4hrsOverview
Iqra College is a Muslim High school based in Ilorin, Kwara State. The golden age of Islam during which Muslims led the world in learning and culture was the source of inspiration for founding the College. Being aware of the knowledge and skill gaps between their immediate environment and the developed world, the school have structured their present to focus on achieving global competitiveness.
• Students with the same contact information as their parents have to retype the information over and over again not making it a good experience for users.
• The admission form isn’t labeled. Hence, students do not know what to expect in the next page until they fill out the current page.
•Students have to start afresh when they close the page rather than continuing from where they stopped.
Redesign an admission form that allows users to know what (questions) to expect so that they can find out answers to all necessary questions before filling out the form. Create an account for each user so they can easily continue from when they stopped filling the form.
Conducting interviews, paper and digital wireframing, low and high-fidelity prototyping, conducting usability studies, accounting for accessibility, and iterating on designs.
Understanding the user
User research summary:
I conducted interviews and created empathy maps to understand the users I’m designing for and their needs. A primary user group identified through research was intending high school students and parents who aren’t conversant with technology.
Name: Mr. Nurudeen
Problem Statement: Mr. Nurudeen would like to enroll his son into Iqra College so he can learn the ways of Islam asides from his regular educational path.
His goal is to complete the Admission form online for submission before the deadline.
• Mr. Nurudeen has to minimize the browser’s tab to get some information for the admission form, but as soon as he gets back, the website reloads, making him fill the form all over again.
• He also has to enter the same contact address information every time he sees an input for contact address.

Used detailed texts to help all users better understand the designs.
One of the laws of UXUI played an important part in my designs, which is:
Aesthetic Usability Effect — Huruso and Koari’s study resulted in findings showing that users often perceive aesthetically pleasing designs as designs that are more usable and functional on the initial look. This means that users have a more positive emotional response towards any visual design, making them more tolerable of minor usability issues. I took care to make use of Iqra College’s brand colours of blue and white, and implemented the colour white mostly through the use of white space, which can be seen throughout the designs of each screen.
The admission form makes users enjoy the process of filling out the form without stress.
