Bangalore-based education startup Learnof.com has launched its aggregator for online and offline courses from both domestic and foreign institutions.
Though currently still in beta, the course catalogue already comprises around 2500 courses in various different fields including IT, banking and finance, engineering but also certificate courses.
Learnof.com aggregtes both free and paid courses and let’s learners refine their search through filters such as online or offline classes, university degree or certificate course.
Courses from prominent or highly popular platforms such as MOOC provider Coursera or course marketplace Udemy also get prime exposure on the site.
The startup targets working executives and lifelong learners as qualifications and skills are becoming increasingly important, and as Joby Joseph, founder and CEO of Learnof.com states in the press release
“The most prevalent method of training executives is through Executive Education Programs (EEP) with global universities. There has been a huge demand for executive education in the last one year and candidates are looking for a platform to discover the most relevant courses based on function, fees, location, difficulty level, course features and most importantly the ‘rating & reviews’ for the institute along with a host of other filters.”
The popularity of course aggregation platforms seems to be unbroken, and just last week EDUKWEST reported on Boston-based Allclasses. We also see MOOCs being highly popular in India, and interest in online education in general accelerates as well.
The Indian edtech market is currently estimated at $20 billion and expected to grow to $ 40 billion by 2017.
