Design Forum: ScholarX platform

We need to discuss the requirements for the scholarX platform. Since this could be a big milestone on SEF I think this is quite urgent as well as an important project.

Notes from the meeting:

OBJECTIVE: Must be able to facilitate ScholarX + allowing other people to collaborate


  • ScholarX 2021 for late 2020 deployment
  • Dating app concept - mentees can do keyword search or being able to filter based on criteria
  • Building up profile for mentor and mentee
    • Think GSOC website
    • Mentee - add profile, have ability to showcase their experience, include Blog links, video posts and include why they want the mentor
    • Mentor - add profile i.e.: experience, projects
  • They can send a request at any time - no time constraints available entire year
    • Deadlines for ScholarX
  • Be able to facilitate smooth communication process
  • Use automated google form to capture information and trigger reminders?
  • Option for SEF Admin team to create profiles for mentors?
  • Need to be able to trial run program


  • Show number of mentees a mentor has mentored or is mentoring, review rating and showcase feature mentees and their profiles


  • Mentors will include IRC networking and other SMEs
  • Notifications - how will this work?
  • How do we measure progress? What milestones do we have?
  • Calendar invites?


  • Sourcing mentors - we will need to create
  • Coin based voting system

Hello, a platform I came across that could be helpful in building the mentorship platform is Ten Thousand Coffees ( They host different universities, organizations etc. and you make a profile and are connected to people with similar interests. I’m logged in through my university so I can screenshot maybe (?) the different features etc.

Hi all following doc is created to finalise the requirements of the platform. Please view and add comments on your opinions.


This looks good @YohanAvishke. I have highlighted the most important tasks in green and I have added some comments as well. Can we have a timeline with these requirements after tomorrow’s call?

thanks a-lot @akshika47. Sure we can give a timeline

Hi @YohanAvishke, Is there any way I could contribute towards this project?

My strengths lie in database design and, UI/UX. :wink:
