WebEx Communications, a provider of online meeting applications in the world and India, has inked a partnership with Indicom Software and Services (Indiss), a Chennai-based e-Learning company, to provide Indian universities with online technical training courses.
A joint solution, based on the WebEx Training Centre, will provide hands-on experience for students across universities in India, starting with Tamil Nadu. The joint offering will also allow universities to conduct online tests. Indiss will be conducting four pilots with identified universities. With the WebEx-based solution, universities will achieve economies of scale and will be able to tap potential students in remote areas as well, without having a significant bearing on investments. Speaking on this partnership with WebEX, K.B. Sridhar, CEO of Indiss, said, with the WebEx model, major universities in India would now be able to tap students across remote locations while overcoming physical infrastructure barriers.
