RESEARCH & A FOCUSED EXPERIENCE
To meet this challenge, the U.S. Department of Education hired the Tactile Group to create the first-of-its-kind cloud-based data collection and reporting system that meets federal security requirements and allows educators to tell success stories about their 21st CCLC programs.
Faced with a wide range of Internet connection speeds, computer capabilities, screen sizes, and user needs from urban to rural areas across the country, Tactile implemented a user-informed and user-focused approach to design: through ongoing user research and feedback, build a web application that removes all unnecessary data points and streamlines the user interface. Tactile employs a hybrid agile methodology to develop, maintain, and continuously improve this tool. 21APR reflects industry-standard practices of responsive web design to ensure optimized use on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.
