Abstract

For students of all ages and everyday people looking to learn a new skill, Skillify allows for users to search for top online courses from the leading learning websites, including Udemy, PluralSight, and Khan Academy. The website allows learners to view and evaluate courses from the different learning platforms based on price, rating, single skill or degree, and curate an experience that suits their needs. The website will save the user time and energy by allowing them to have the best options in one search, versus looking through each website individually. In addition, users can create an account and save their searches and be updated when new, great courses that align with their educational needs are available. Skillify allows a user to find and plan a given curriculum that suits his or her needs, whether all of the courses be from one website, or from various websites that are recommended based on their previous searches or interests that he or she selects in a user profile. Unlike websites such as OEDB.com which has a search engine that includes several online learning platforms, Skillify will have access to a more curated experience.
