Title: Online learning platform

Description: Each time he is in the middle of some difficult task he goes searching for a quick solution and he ends up in tutorials that take forever. These tutorials push his brain to decode a lot of context in order to understand the subject. This is especially difficult after a full day of coding. Blogs are the main culprit here. They are optimized for authors to write fast but not for readers to comprehend fast. The code is fragmented in segments. Each concept is split in yet another separate code editor. This makes it really difficult to follow the same idea quickly. An ever occurring habit is to skim read because we need to get the info fast and leave ASAP. For the same reasons this guy never has time to finish his long list of Udemy tutorials. This guy is not here to learn himself. He is looking for resources to train his employee. Productivity and quality are at utmost importance for this type of user. We need to provide him a route trough the app that convinces him that we are the best guys in town when it comes to fast teaching. High cognitive load - The user is forced to visualize a lot in order to understand a topic. Excessive technical jargon - Beginners will have a tough time when encountering rare and difficult technical jargon. Difficult navigation - No clear overview for fast navigation. Users are forced to consume the entire content in order to understand the project topics. Forgetting learned information - If neglected for a long time skills will be lost. Learning via memorization is highly inefficient. Insecurity, lack of direction - After finishing a tutorial online a beginner will have a strong sense of insecurity. He has no clue on how to proceed further. There is little focus on the ways of approaching a programming problem. Most of the tuts are focused on teaching small recipes. The student has to figure out for himself what to do next.
