User Experience & User Interface Design
Apple Developer Academy Facilitator
Team DNA [Fatih, Denny, Michael, Farrel, & Trevin]
Consists of 5 people from Computer Science major, except me who is from Visual Communication Design – New Media major. We were working on the process of UX, UI, & Swift-based app development for a Month.
iOS Foundation is a part of Apple Developer Academy program with Bina Nusantara (BINUS) University. Throughout this program, we were learning the process of mobile app development within Apple Ecosystem by using Challenge-Based Learning (CBL) method.
“The Challenge Based Learning user guide is for everyone (students, teachers, parents, administrators, and community members) interested in building learning communities focused on identifying Challenges and implementing thoughtful and sustainable solutions” (Source: https://cbl.digitalpromise.org/2016/08/30/challenge-based-learning-guide/).
Starting with ‘Health’ as the big idea, our group look for problems by gathering ideas we have in mind, until we chose diabetes as our main topic.
DOCTOR (Specialize in Nutrition):
Dr.Tonita Petrus Pati, Sp.GK, told us the details of diabetes, and the cost to overcome diabetes that surprisingly for us, is very expensive. Especially when patient has complications.
Mr.Romy Oktaviansyah, told us his experience of 25 years with diabetes. With 8 years of using insulin, he is confidence enough to say that he is the one who knows and takes control of his cosumption, better than doctors.
“I am smarter than the doctors… I am the one who check my glucose everyday”
Define & Develop
Diabetes is very dangerous, & expensive to overcome. Its procedure to overcome currently done by food logging & doctors’ calculation manually based on assumption. But understanding that patients are the ones who checked & control their blood sugar everyday. Self-Management is the best way to help patients to overcome diabetes.
By helping self-management so that patients’ diabetes aren’t levelling up, through Digital Logging.
Understanding from our research, that most of diabetic patients are old people, I created a user interface design that has big icons for them to see it clearly. Items on the homepage are also the most important ones for the users to see. Yet if accommodated more time to execute this project, I would like to validate again the prototype with real target users. So that I can get feedbacks and really comprehend on what their needs are.
