In today's world, people find a challenge seeking help for learning something they are not skilled at, especially, when the amount of things a person can do or be aware of are humungous. People would benefit from such a service because everyone out there is interested in learning something new or improving upon their existing skills. Nowadays, our experiences lead us to be well-connected to many people, but be less-aware about each individual and hence, know less about their interests.
Designed a mobile application that faciltates sharing of skills among people.The platform provides a means by which a user, who would like to gain a particular skill or need some help in a particular domain, would be able to find people who would be interested in teaching/guiding that particular user. The intent of the platform is to connect people with similar skills digitally but motivate them to meet physically to get their share of guidance.

Personas | Several approaches were laid-out and sketches were created to understand the user's needs and areas where the platform could facilitate interaction between people.
Wireframes | Wireframing was done to conceptualize the flow and understand navigational elements.
Paper Prototype |
The prototype was created to test the functionality related to the login process,
searching for a skill and requesting a skill.
The app prioritizes searching for friends over other people and first highlights that the user can leverage his/her current network to learn the skill. If the user wants he/she can choose to look for other people if he/she is not interested in learning from friends the app highlights.
