Stage 3 - Testing and Interviews

I presented my initial round of mockups to our VP of Product and Strategy for review.  She was a co-founder of the company, and had in-depth knowledge of the history of each of the products I was working within.  She made suggestions for fine-tuning the text descriptions I used in the course signal messaging so they would be more consistent with what the product actually does.

She also directed me toward two of our product educators/consultants (Lori and Chuck), who both had previous experience as academic advisors, since advisors would be one of the primary users of this information.
