Maintaining all key functionalities of the current site was an important feature going forward, yet the redesign does away with the conventional grid and instead opts for a scalable modular, mobile-ready and responsive system. It is a streamlined, single-page design that’s actually fun to interact with. Its lateral architecture focuses navigation and eases taskflow. With extensive user customization at its core to maximize individuality and thus personal investment, the WebAssign of the future will be a fun, quirky and highly empowered learning experience.
