Project History

The project originated from the 2020/2021 HISS program, where the idea originating from multiple stakeholders were handed to the then project researcher (Andrew) for further analysis and research.

Since the initiation of the project, we have progressed past the research and ideation phase. We are currently in the latter stages of the creation phase, with a MVP ready to be tested by users.

Successfully created an MVP with the functionality sufficient to allow user testing. The current project backend is sitting on AWS from a Monash-operated account.

Completed MVP, ready for user testing and phase 4 of the product development agile cycle.

Goals

Current plan/focus is to conduct as much user testing an interview as possible to gain a better understanding of the product’s viability in the real environment, and to improve UX/UI based on user feedback.
