TIME Magazine rebranded and re-architecture TIME for Kids as a new tool in efforts to expand their educational footprint to young people. The main challenge was designing and developing a content management tool (CMS) and learning management tool (LMS) with a wide variety of use cases.
This tool empowers students to explore interactive articles that are specifically designed for touchscreen displays. It offers multiple reading levels, accessibility features such as Spanish translation, and embedded vocabulary support. Educators can use TIME for Kids to teach non-fiction to their classes, distribute assignments, moderate quizzes, and manage grade books all through the website. Teaching resources, reading assessments, and lesson plans are aligned to Common Core State Standards.
To bring the project to fruition from the ground up, I worked closely with cross-sectional teams from the editorial, curriculum, marketing, product managers, developers, data analytics, and quality assurance.
