Aakash, India’s leading institute for medical and engineering entrance besides regular coaching, has gone online live with WizIQ technology and launched its AakashLive program.
The partnership would see WizIQ’s ‘Online Academy Builder’ and ‘Virtual Classroom’ technology utilized to simulate a live classroom experience for engineering, medical and foundation courses aspirants. The major player in online segment currently is “Merit Nation”.
“The AakashLive launch marks an important milestone in our ongoing efforts to provide high quality entrance exam coaching to students anywhere in the country,” said Aakash Chaudhry, Director – Aakash Educational Services Pvt. Ltd.
With the launch of AakashLive, students would be able to attend live instructor-led classrooms from the comfort of their homes at a lower fee, saving valuable commute time. The online academy would also include several additional features such course schedules, asynchronous discussion sessions, integrated cloud storage for content and multiple access to class recordings.
A ‘Dial and Learn’ facility is also available for students without an Internet connection to access audio lectures through phone. Doubts can be clarified during the session just like a real classroom, separately in a doubt clearing session or through e-mail queries.
AakashLive is currently running 2-year Medical (AIPMT) for class XI studying students and 1-year Medical (AIPMT) for class XII passed (Repeater) students. The 3rd batch for Medical (AIPMT) for class XII passed students will start from Aug 17. Courses for other streams will be announced shortly.
