Description

Designing a dating platform for intellectually challenged people

People with intellectual disabilities often find meeting and dating new people hard. In addition to logistical challenges, e.g. a lack of mobility, they often get mobbed on platforms like Tinder.

During the HCI course, students design a user experience seeking a fresh and playful approach to designing a dating app for intellectually challenged people.


Every student develops a digital prototype that reflects this problem. Students can work with a prototyping tool of choice they are familiar with; coding knowledge is beneficial. During the course, we invite experts from Caritas familiar with the special needs and heterogeneity of the target group.
