1. There are so many MOOC(massive open online courses) offered online
2. by many universities (Stanford and Harvard) and websites like Udemy and edx.org
3. Each have their own courses.

5. they have to search multiple websites and see where it is available,
6. This is very time-consuming process.

Solution:

1. First determine the best universities and websites.
2. Pull the data about their courses by partnering with them

4. When someone comes and searches for a course like “Macro Economics” or “Professional Magician”
5. Your website displays the courses available and on which website.
6. The user takes the course and becomes a little smarter than he was before.
