Serial entrepreneur and investor, Mr. Raju Vanapala has ventured ahead to tap the potential of online learning with his new venture, “LearnSocial“. This aims at building a global marketplace for Instructor-led Online Learning. With a team size of 50, LearnSocial identifies industry relevant courses for college fresher/s, mid-career professionals, senior professionals; and have also partnered with over 200 relevant industry experts to teach on this platform.
Unlike going into traditional online education or the new generation of Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) platform, LearnSocial offers Live Instructor-led online courses on wide range of topics including Technology, Languages, Business Management, Robotics and many others.
The classes are conducted through online video streaming where there is two-way communication between users and instructors. Also, once a person register with the portal for a particular course, he/she will get Lifetime Access to the course materials. At the end, on successful completion of the given project assignment, it will be reviewed by the instructor and the user will be awarded a certificate with performance-based grading.
Commenting on the launch Mr. Raju Vanapala, Founder & CEO, LearnSocial said, “ The idea is to equip each trainer to deliver a special learning experience to any individual from any remote corner. All it takes is internet connectivity of less than 1 MBPS to access all cutting edge and industry relevant courses at the LearnSocial platform.”
In near future, the team plans to increase the number of courses and in diverse segments. Currently 11 courses are available on the platform; but about 10 new courses will be added each month going forward.
