Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I Learn!
Today, we spend more and more time online, interacting with friends, making purchases and enjoying songs, movies and videos. But when it comes to learning and test preparation, why are we still stuck to age-old practices? Face-to-face interaction with instructors and peers has its benefits, but the time is ripe to complement traditional learning models with an enriching collaborative learning environment that complements classroom learning.
Currently focusing on the Indian test preparation market for competitive exams such as JEE, CAT, AIEEE, PMT, GRE, GMAT and local entrance tests, CourseKart is building the next-generation content delivery platform that connects coaches and publishers with students and allows students to learn, evaluate and collaborate anytime, anywhere.
CourseKart has adopted a more evolutionary approach towards learning. They believe that in many cases – instructors nationwide who are passionately working with students in classrooms are great at what they do – i.e. understand, articulate and deliver learning concepts to their students in the best-way possible. But what they lack is the ability to complement their strengths with the means to connect with their students anywhere, anytime. Doing so will help unleash tremendous impact by delivering benefits to students and instructors alike.
Since its inception in mid-2012, the first year has been extremely difficult and challenging. But they have received great response from their clients – both content owners and students. From their first client in 2012, CourseKart is now being used by over 10,000 students across 50 cities and multiple test-prep verticals including GATE, CA, LSAT and Commerce Entrance exams.
“The trademark high and low startup moments tinged with the excitement of winning our first client and building up our team of “can do” believers has been a super experience!” says Mr. Vishal Chopra from CourseKart
They have a geographically distributed team with 2 members in the US, 1 in Delhi and the rest in Ahmedabad. Energy, team-play and caliber to deliver the goods when it matters most, has been their defining criteria in building the team. Technology has made it easy for them to coordinate and deliver a world-class product.
To nurture an idea to fulfilment, you need a great team, clear vision and courage to pivot or persevere when the situation demands. Fortunately CourseKart has a solid core team with the right set of skill-set to take the ship forward. Using a lean development approach based on market and client feedback, they are looking to lessen their chances of failure, and keep hoping for the best J
“Welcome to the world of CourseKart. Give us a shot! We are the best-kept and fastest growing “secret” in town.” signs off Vishal.
