Harkalive

Online Marketplace for teachers and students

Sometimes you just have to dance!! Harkalive is an interactive marketplace where prospective students can find live or pre-recorded instruction for all styles of dance disciplines, yoga, functional fitness, and much more!

Harkalive was an idea that spun out of the global pandemic that required expertly applied web development, engaging design, expert-level UX/UI, and life-altering content.

Creating dynamic experiences for users

Building a marketplace is no easy feat.  Especially when the users may be those that have never interacted with a website or platform like it before.  

CIT built separate pathways for instructors and students to make the process of onboarding and starting a lesson as easy as clicking a button!  Instructors can not only upload pre-recorded videos into a library for prospective students to preview or experience at their convenience , but they can also host live classes that automatically upload onto their page.  Students can find classes based upon multiple categories, discover new classes via a real-time feed of available classes, and pay all on 1 simple platform!

Eye-Catching Web Design

CIT was tasked with creating not just a web platform, but a marketplace that keeps users coming back for more.  Being that instructor content was out of our hands (as it should be as developers aren’t known for their movement), we were faced with the difficult problem of how to encourage participation from multiple countries, discerning users, and alternative motivations.

By utilizing a custom video segment as the user’s first impression of the platform, we were able to communicate one of the fundamental ideas behind the platform and humanity, movement is joy.  The user is then greeted by available classes, a searchable database of groups, or for those unsure of where to start, a quick quiz to make suggestions of your first experience.  Encouraging participation from the first impression is an integral part of the success of the website.  We created a website that not only accomplishes its goals, but does so in a fun, light-hearted way.
