EduTravel for Credit

Edutravel for credit is a tour provider founded on the concept of experiential learning.

In partnership with Ontario public school boards and private schools, their innovative program provides students with the opportunity to travel locally and internationally while earning a wide variety of Ontario secondary school credits.

The Challenge

Problem

The current website is fun and informative, however, the flow and navigation are complicated and contain too many steps and variances.

Some of the reasons behind this:

  1. Unintuitive menu navigation
  2. Hidden essential elements
  3. Limited search options

Solution

Redesign EduTravel for Credit website and create a better experience for the core user by simplifying the content hierarchy, navigation flow and item accessibility.

All this while reflecting the aesthetics and philosophies of their consumers and ultimately increasing the customer conversion rate and overall online bookings — specifically creating a new Menu system; A Home, About, Programs and Course page.
