This educational app is a service that connects those who want to learn and those who want to teach. The Konnektid app allows people to gain new skills and get a better understanding of a variety of topics such as learning a new language, Photoshop skills or gardening tips. The app is used by sending out a request and whoever can fulfill the request simply responds and then a chat widow will open up for communication.

The educational app's catch phrase is "everyone has a skill worth sharing." It connects people through proximity and lets them share experience and knowledge. The app can be used by those who want to learn, or by tutors. A benefit of being part of this service is that those who contribute as tutors have full access to other tutors and learning experiences in exchange for their insights.

With over 6,000 global users, this kid-friendly app allows children to learn from experienced people, as opposed to online how-to videos or false information pages.
