As I slowly work my way through some of the courses, I realized that virtual chapters could be very useful, both during the pandemic and after. What I also discovered is that they search capabilities are largely focused on geographic location (City). While you can filter for a narrow selection of topics (e.g., Computer Science), there is no way to search for Android development, for instance.
Thinking about this, there are a couple of things that could make it easier to find a relevant chapterD:
- Ability to search by topic of event/chapter
- Simple fix: add additional filters, such as “Mobile Development” or “Cyber” (maybe there was a Cyber filter, I don’t recall)
- Add a filter for searching for virtual chapters – I would assume that some Chapters, especially ones focused on specific topics, might be only virtual.
Of these, having a better search capability is the most critical, especially as Chapters grow.
Thanks for listening,
