Selecting a Domain
We realized our that online learning was too large of a space to explore completely, and we needed to narrow down our project a bit, to make it more tangible.
It was important for us to choose a specific domain to explore online learning within. Although we looked at many options, we decided to build our prototype site around health coaching.
Health coaches help people improve their health habits, and work with people on health issues like dieting, fitness, or quitting smoking.
Selecting this domain allowed us to focus on a specific kind of user, with specific goals and motivational aspects.
