CollegeDekho announces Learn, enters USD 184 mn* Indian higher education e-learning space with its latest initiative
Hyderabad: CollegeDekho, India’s largest college admissions and education services platform, has launched Learn, an online learning platform offering a series of live, interactive courses across multiple streams such as computer programming, business, finance, and digital marketing to help students prepare for their future course of studies, and placements. Students can choose from a range of preparatory courses based on their requirements, interest, and time.
The foray marks CollegeDekho’s commitment to offer end-to-end services to build a quality higher education ecosystem in India for students.
With the increasing digitalization of education, India’s e-learning market, the second largest after the US, is expected to boom. CollegeDekho’s entry into India’s USD 2bn e-learning market aims to help India’s 27.5mn undergraduate and 4mn postgraduate students** with its specially designed courses. Launched with the objective to promote a 360-degree understanding of subjects, CollegeDekho Learn currently has more than 35 courses, covering a wide range of disciplines – from accounting to artificial intelligence, and domains for personal growth such as communication development and digital marketing. The courses are each of 20–25-hours duration and are conducted by subject matter experts. The company has plans to add 40 new courses shortly.
CollegeDekho provides unlimited access to recorded lectures, videos, and reading materials for self-paced learning and revisions. The platform also hosts a 24×7 operational forum for doubt clarification and discussions. It also presents questions from previous editions of relevant exams.
Commenting on the launch of online courses, Mr. Ruchir Arora, Co-Founder & CEO, CollegeDekho, said, “We are open to invest in key areas that will ensure the success of students across India. Studies point out that lack of understanding of core concepts prevents students from scoring well and securing gainful jobs. Hence, we are rolling out CollegeDekho Learn to address the urgent need for promoting an in-depth, 360 degree understanding of core subjects in higher education. We believe that it is possible only by reaching quality lectures by qualified subject matter experts to students wherever they are. Developing clarity in one’s core subjects have multiplier effects: our students will be able to excel in their higher education, prepare themselves better for future courses of studies and be job ready.”
He added, “We see our investment in Learn as promising and well aligned with our strategy to offer a full basket of solutions to students pursuing higher education. We will keep producing more courses and adding many more disciplines while making sure that we line up only subject matter experts with excellent track records, who act as mentors and who commit to the success of students.”
CollegeDekho also recently announced India’s first Ed-FinTech vertical that offers end-to-end financial solutions at zero percent EMI for students studying either within India or even abroad.
