Brief Abstract

The educational technology terrain is changing quickly. Planning for and focusing on the needs of students and instructors as a core driver of product design is critical to ensure that they are not lost. Evan Travers, Lead User Experience Architect at ProctorU, has over thirteen years of experience working with customer-facing development projects. He will talk briefly about the practice of User Experience Design, discuss some of the challenges of product design in the world of online learning, and showcase some of ProctorU’s past roadblocks and greatest successes.


Evan makes tools and tells stories. He has spent most of his career as a software developer, and now helps ProctorU look at their products through the eyes of their users. He is in love with the grace he has found and is currently living in Birmingham, Alabama.
