Project Summary

The Student Financial Lab Program was a product of NavPoint Institute for Financial Literacy before it was sold in February 2012. It is the culmination of over eight years of work in the financial education industry. The screenshots featured on the right are just a small sample of a very large and robust application.

The program includes a structured curriculum and budgeting walkthrough that were consistently able to improve student retention and maintain excellent knowledge improvement scores, saving many community colleges millions of dollars every year in tuition and state funding.

The initial design comps were created by McLean Design to establish the brand and framework for the program. I did extensive work on the program in many different areas with two other colleagues to complete the program. We built a custom PHP framework that allowed us to offer many different customization options to the various colleges that implemented the program into their curriculum.

Get that stupid pocket out of the way so I can admire this awesome nebula!
