New Delhi: Teachmint, an education infrastructure provider and India’s largest teaching platform, and Pandai, a Malaysian edtech startup, today announced a partnership to deliver classroom solutions to 5 mn+ students in Malaysia through Teachmint’s live class technology. This partnership comes as a part of Teachmint’s Video-as-a-Service (VaaS) offering for edtech organizations across the globe to enable them with their proprietary, state-of-the-art plug and play live class solutions.

With this, Teachmint solidifies its expansion into Asia, having also recently partnered with Dhaka-based edtech startup Shikho to power live classes for millions of students in Bangladesh.

Teachmint is a mobile and video-first teaching platform which has helped over 1.5 million teachers in India to digitize their classrooms. Their proprietary video technology, built entirely in-house, is highly optimized for low bandwidth use and distinctly customised for educators with features like live classes, recording and storing lectures, automated attendance, polls, etc.

Teachmint is building the infrastructure for education globally and their VaaS offering is specifically enabling edtech organizations to deliver a distinctive online learning experience to their students. The offering is also significantly reducing go-to-market time for edtech players by providing them ready-to-launch classroom solutions.

Announcing this partnership, Mihir Gupta, Co-founder & CEO, Teachmint, said, “With our proprietary classroom technology, we want to power the edtech economy across the world by partnering with startups that are solving unique, scalable problems in their respective geographies. Pandai has made great strides in creating a holistic learning ecosystem with a deep focus on quality content in Malaysia and we are delighted to partner with them in their journey.

Today, Teachmint is the only player catering to end-to-end infrastructure needs – from independent teachers to even edtech players. We have created a new category within edtech that is focused on building the core infrastructure of online teaching itself. Our LIVE class platform is functioning at an unprecedented scale with over 10 million users adopting our platform in just over 15 months since inception. With our international partnerships, we want to revolutionize digital education across the globe and help education providers and learners truly reap its benefits.”

Also founded in 2020, Pandai is a learning app which focuses on K-12 learning and assessment to help school students perform better in school. Through Pandai, students learn using gamified quizzes which are aligned to the curriculum, and receive personalised analysis using artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms that allows them to identify their strengths and weaknesses.

Backed by Y Combinator, Pandai currently has more than 300,000 registered users in the Malaysian market alone. Dedicated functions for Parents and Teachers are also integrated to monitor and support students’ progress.

According to Khairul Anwar Mohamad Zaki, Co-founder & CEO of Pandai, “By integrating the Teachmint platform into the Pandai ecosystem, we are creating a more comprehensive offering for our growing customer base.”

“At the moment, our users are already completing more than 1,000,000 questions per month on Pandai, on top of other activities that they can do in the Pandai app. This partnership is a step towards our eventual goal of creating an education super app for the Malaysian market, and significantly transforming the learning outcomes of students.”
