Stepping outside your role as a CEO or as a lead person in the company, speaking strictly as a user, why do you like your initiative in education? When using it, what strikes you as the cool feature(s)?
Today the world is a local place and if I need an expertise from the other side of the globe, I can get it right at my fingertips. I believe that online education solutions addresses this more effectively than anything else. Also, the first beneficial aspect that comes up is cost-saving with respect to time/travel costs. I can learn at my own pace and in the comforts of my own place and in much more detail.
Would you like to describe your partners, the who, why, and how factors of your company or the educational undertakings?
In India, we have universities with more than 400-500 colleges under their umbrella. In case there is a special visiting faculty, the students who are in immediate proximity can derive the benefits of the lecture. But with the distance learning software, you can accommodate each and every student, irrespective of his/her geographic locations, by broadcasting the lecture live over the Internet and also by archiving the same simultaneously so that it can be made available in the future.
