Hobbyistic is a web application that allows users to track their hobbies during their free time in a fun and engaging workflow. Users could store and retrieve information related to their hobbies through custom widgets, view personal engagement statistics through a performance dashboard, receive notifications of their progress, block schedule their time commitments through a google calendar integration, and identify custom milestones through their learning progression. Hobbyistic’s workflow encompasses a spectrum of application methodologies to create a platform that feels less like a chore and more of an exciting opportunity to expand one’s skills and knowledge. For example, the engagement workflow is driven through a pseudo- Learning Management System (LMS), a pseudo productivity and time management system that keeps track of hobby progression through an analytics dashboard, and a motivational notifications system to drive user engagement. However, our workflow can be customized based on an individual user’s personal preferences or needs through the use of widgets in Hobbysitic’s hobby and analytics dashboard. The Hobbyisitic web application aims to provide a fun user experience learning hobbies.
