This was the result of an internal hackathon at Udemy. I was lucky to work with my team on creating this app, winner of the most innovative award. The team consisted of 2 Product Designers, one Project Manager, one Front End Dev and one Back End Dev.
The goal of the hackathon was to create something that related to Udemy, it could be an improvement, an addition to the current product or just something you didn’t have the time to do during normal hours. We decided to think out of the box on this one. Since Udemy’s content is based mainly on video and there are over 40000 classes, our goal was to create a discovery game that would help you narrow down the search.
So right out of the box, you get video cards that work in a Tinder like way, you swipe right for yes and left for no. The Decisions tree was formulated in the back end, helping narrow the categories. In other words, if you pick photography, it would show you related content in the subsequent cards.
After the ten cards are selected or dismissed, you are taken to the results page, where you can preview videos from a grid view or select a list view. Once you’ve found the right video, you can tap the learn more button with will redirect you to the course page on Udemy.
