Coursera, the largest MOOC provider by far has over 7 Lac Indian learners pursuing education on the platform.
Through its patent-pending Avagmah Technology Platform (ATP), Avagmah helps universities extend the reach of their traditional distance education to millions of deserving working professionals without diluting the quality.
A great amount of focus is laid on student success & course completion. Avagmah’s technology platform which is collaborative, intuitive and predictive; provides faculty with valuable analytics on how and at what pace each student is learning, enabling them to provide personalized support to aid student learning outcomes.
Such revolutions in education technology has the potential to change the way education is delivered in the country. Working professionals can now fulfill their dreams of getting high quality higher degree from a prestigious university sitting at the comfort of their homes.
