Company: Toluna
Role: UX&UI expert

Background

ASKIT is a web platform which allows users to share their questions with the world and to get mass wisdom about anything they want to know. Users can ask any type of question-related to any subject. Users could also answer other people questions and be rewarded with points. This platform is a closed group. The members of ASKIT are part of Toluna's big community which includes more than 30 million users.

Challenge

Although the main propose of the product is to share questions and get answers there are two more things that should be taken into consideration:
1. The content of this website is changing often, therefore the UI of it should be simple and quick to answer
2. There are a lot of question types es/no questions, multi selection, thumb-it, battle, rating questions, and more. In addition, users can create a question

Solution

The final design that you can see below is a new redesign for the community platform. 

The wireframe below shows the main UI layout:

By clicking on the Yellow floating button, users could add their question and share it with everyone:

Answer on other's questions

The main "Home" screen is the one that shows all the questions available that has been asked lately. The questions are ordered from the most recent to the old once. To answer on a question users only need to click on a card and make his choice, this is one click for an answer.

In the image below, you could see the card UI and content hierarchy evolution. The initial thought is that users will be able to see the content on the website as easily as possible, answer on more questions as possible, one after one and be able to see more questions above the desktop fold area.

Wireframe number 3 is the chosen one, the user can see in a clear way the subject tag and can answer quickly on the question.
