While a Senior UX Designer at British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB) in the Research & Concept Development team I designed the Sky Scope web application.
Scopes allows for quick and easy live and up to date supplementary UGC to be added to enhance any news story, article, or topic on Sky web pages.
Vast amounts of topical and insightful UGC is available online. However, as a content Editor it can be time consuming to search, find and compile relevant and quality UGC. Also, when compiling UGC intelligent moderation is needed to ensure this content is kept ‘legitimate’ – and there is no interference to the content, context or source.
The Sky Scope application enables quick UGC aggregation through searching content sources, presenting relevant results and then providing a simple ‘click to add’ UI feature that adds content into a Scope. Scopes containing UGC can be easily added to any Sky webpage through a quick ‘copy and paste’ feature.
This application is not publicly available however, Sky Scope widgets frequently appear on Sky websites.
