OurHealth is our prototype website and design for a community about health and fitness, where users can gather to take online classes, discuss topics, and create educational resources for others. On OurHealth, anyone can be a teacher, and anyone can be a learner. We designed the site to encourage members to build their health knowledge and share their expertise with others. We hope that all of our members will be anxious and able to act as informal health coaches.
OurHealth serves as a platform for us to express our recommendations about exploiting opportunities that lie in the intersection between social networking and online learning. The site provides a concrete context for our ideas to materialize, and is a tangible artifact that we can use to test our ideas with users.
In OurHealth, a user might join the "Stress at work" community, and browse through the courses within that community. The user could then choose to take a course on "Relaxation techniques to reduce stress at work."
Please let us show you the prototype in our video walkthrough.
