Knexpert is a platform for experts to monetize their knowledge and help people that want to gain knowledge in specific areas to learn in a collaborative environment. Knexpert allows an expert in a subject matter to go to the site, create a portal, and then grow a community. We do this by letting people and businesses create a portal platform that allows them to engage users in a few ways.
We have figured out a way to merge some very successful existing ideas into a single platform. We have taken the concept of Udemy for online elearning and now let the expert make courses for their own portal, to share and sell to people. We have taken the iconic http://stackoverflow.com/ and put its features in the portal, so that the expert and other community experts can help create a vibrant fast learning area for people to ask questions and get answers. Finally, we have taken the cool idea from https://clarity.fm/ to let people call the experts in this portal for a fee. Basically, we end up with courses, questions and live calls; something that no other online platform provides.
So, if you are an expert at something or think that there should be a community on a specific topic you can just go to the site, make a portal, name it, start creating your content, and then bring people to it. BAM! You have monetized yourself in a way that no other system does and you have given people the ability to access multiple touch points: courses, online Q&A, and calls.
Our current in-progress Wordpress site can be seen here http://knexpert.wpengine.com/. This is just the marketing side of things and while, yes, it's a template, we like the feel of it a lot. The platform side of things resembles both the site and each of the three unique platforms mentioned above.
This is a re-listed logo project on 99 designs but, after learning from that process and the speaking to the 99 team, we have learned a bit more about how to better ask for a logo and engage the talent here at 99 designs. So, we look forward to a much more proactive engagement in this contest and we hope to get unique, one-of-a-kind ideas to help us launch our unique vision to the world.
It should go without saying... thanks for your time in advance!
