The human psyche is programmed to learn best in the company of others. In fact, social groups and environment play a pivotal role in learning, as pointed out by Albert Bandura in his Social Learning Theory. With the augmentation in technology, these properties of human behaviour were previously employed on social networking sites. But understanding the need for human learning in the company of like-minded people, we have curated a one-of-a-kind social skill-sharing platform - KoolStories.

With a much-enhanced vision in mind, our app is a riveting instrument that incorporates the aspects of social skill sharing and knowledge transfer into one revolutionary upskilling and social learning app.

Why Social Learning?

Over the years, the traditional one-on-one exchange of knowledge within the four walls of a classroom has been the only source of learning. But now, with the augmentation of technology and the rapid development in the digital world, the concept of online learning or E-learning has gained currency.

Although digital learning was only looked upon as a source of extra learning it was only until the pandemic that e-learning and working became the new normal.

Now that the digital learning sphere has gained much-needed popularity companies are taking measures to make the online experience better. Since students and professionals prefer to work from their homes it is high time to bring some warmth into the otherwise isolated online learning environment.

KoolStories social learning app is built keeping this concept in mind. It aims to give the masses a platform to learn, socialise, interact and share. The need for such a product stems from the fact that dropout rates for online courses are high. A burning reason for this is the lack of collaborative learning, isolation, and passive or stale courses.

KoolStories solves this issue for the learners as they get an opportunity to learn from mentors of their choice, build connections and share their progress. There aren't any long-term ties or fees for enrollment either.

More importantly, these capsules of information are perfect as they allow a learner to easily circle back and re-learn.

In fact, learning with KoolStories is a two-way street. While creators share their knowledge and give one-on-one sessions, the learners collaborate with others

The Demand for an Improved Social Learning Platform

KoolStories is an amalgamation of two essential elements of human life- learning and socialising. Both are indispensable, and both are continuous. While social networking platforms fulfil the component of socialising, there was yet a need to introduce a social element into learning. KoolStories is the glue that establishes a connection between these two quintessential components that run our lives - learning and socialising. Continued learning is that leverage to achieve greatness and satisfaction. Most importantly, this learning and skill enhancement has become a crucial part of the corporate and business realm. Studies by the World Economic Forum support this clause. It states the drastic need for employees to reskill or upskill their knowledge to meet the market’s evolving requirements over the upcoming three years.

To enhance this picture, there is an isolated but fundamental element of "networking" that leads to connecting and learning with like-minded people. Socialising has a profound effect on our daily functions. We are hooked on social networking platforms to know the latest and most recent. There is also this keen desire to expand our reach and grow as a community. But this element of socialising remains isolated from skill enhancement or learning portals.

We, the makers of KoolStories, identified this gap between learning and networking and have come up with the most revolutionary learning app.

The KoolStories app- the ultimate upskilling, networking and social learning platform - is designed to cater to the needs of both:

   - Learners

   - Skilled individuals

Through the app, learners can readily access skill-specific content and gain from the knowledge provided therein. The Rating system of the app, in the form of Kools, depends on the usefulness of the content. An expert’s high average Kool rating indicates his proficiency in the skill domain. A high Kool rating increases his chances of gaining visibility in a particular skill community.

Apart from the categorised content within skill communities, the interactions are facilitated by one-on-one live sessions and messaging options. In the presence of these features, the learning experience in the KoolStories app becomes well rounded, wholesome and social.

Also, we have changed the concept of learning with the production of micro audio and video. Since long articles, blogs, PDFs, and assignments seem dry and uninteresting, the concept of 5-minute content packets is the right amount of knowledge one can easily grasp and retain. We chose micro-content as the perfect way to share information so as to remove any unnecessary pieces of content that usually accompany long-form digital content.

While learners gain knowledge socially through professionals. Skilled individuals who aim to monetise their talent can massively profit from an appreciative audience. The app is built to solve the biggest concern of experienced experts and content creators - to find a suitable marketplace for their talents. The KoolStories app, thus, accelerates the process of gaining visibility and exchange of knowledge by facilitating interaction between potential learners and talent across borders. The app achieves this by creating a hub of 30 global skill communities where community support lies at the crux.

It would be unfair to term an example to be best. But to give you an idea, let's focus on a music class. A student learns not only from music theory and its principles but also from other learners. They experience different music styles,  abilities, music tastes and the overall environment of the class. It is safe to say that their creative juices flow when they rub shoulders with other musicians.
