With TalentEdge, you can attend an IIM class at home or at your workstation
We live in an era where even distant learning is dated. Virtual classes with the best faculties in the country are now available at your convenience
Imagine this — you are at home or at your workplace and are attending LIVE lectures of professors from IIMs, XLRI, MICA and so on. No, we are not talking about the regular distant learning classes. We are talking about re-creating a classroom with interactions and LIVE lectures from the best professors in the country.
The people at Talentedge, which is bringing us live and Interactive 'anywhere' learning, in the digital format, tells us that their virtual classes have struck a chord with over 3,00,000 individuals and corporate learners. The company initiates industry-relevant learning by bringing eminent subject experts into online education. The man behind the idea, Aditya Malik, CEO and MD of Talentedge, believes that this is the future of education in the country. "With a platform like this, the candidate does not have to relocate or spend on his stay in the particular city. He is going to get a degree sitting at the office or at home," he said.
The numbers clearly validate his claim — the EdTech organisation provides over 250 courses from 70+ premium Indian and International Institutes. Aditya explains that it is largely designed for the working professional. "As a working professional in a competitive world, there is a high possibility of one feeling the need to acquire the latest skills which will help them progress in their respective fields. So how does one bridge the gap between the existing skills of employees and the ones required for their advancement? EdTech provides a solution here by creating a platform where working professionals can learn without compromising on their time at work," he explains.
Not just that, it can even find out if you are a "back-bencher" or the "over-achiever". "We have certain variants like class-participation, attendance, visibility etc that can easily define if the student is interested in the class or not," Aditya says. The platform also has other benefits like getting access to the recorded class, extra sessions with the faculty and timely performance reviews.
