I have a challenge of presenting a list of college degrees with basic information on each degree for the user to choose 1 or more that they are considering.
The old version of this application was just a drop down list of the choices. There are about 100 degrees to choose from.
The stakeholders want something more with this new version. They want the information to be engaging & informative since the target users are students who have been accepted but haven't started yet and may still be undecided as to their final college destination.
I have created a few mockups I think would be more engaging as well as serve in educating the student and accomplish the goal of gathering information on the student's degree interests.
I'm a developer, not a designer and I'm not sure if I'm just falling for the glitzy ways websites present information such as using a carousel (are carousels effective) or infinite scrolling (is infinite scrolling justifiable) and would really like to know if any of the mockups would strengthen the end goal or detract and if so how to approach the problem instead.
Carousel (User has full control over moving it)
