The problem:

Online educational content is suffering from a signal to noise ratio problem. There's never been more high-quality educational videos uploaded to free platforms like Youtube and Vimeo, but it's also never been harder to find the correct videos to learn a particular skillset.

The idea:

Create a platform that curates clips from the best video content around the web, making it much easier to agree that "to learn X, watch Y, and do Z"


The biggest technical problem to overcome is the "clipping" of video content, as it involves utilizing video APIs and also runs into the limits of how video is displayed on web and mobile browsers. Once this technical hurdle is overcome, the rest of the web application should be relatively straight forward.

Because of the heavy API demands, I'll be building this in React using GraphQL on the backend and a single-page React frontend. My full methodology for selecting tools can be found here.
