What I Will Do With $5,000

The grant shall be utilized to cover the cost to produce an entire wireframe design and UX research to gain further insight on the “how” and “why” the platform can be beneficial to end users and platform trainers.

The wireframes and UX research will play a crucial role in the success of the platform, and because this platform will be large in size, every dollar spent in these focus points will be essential.
