With poor completion rates and high dropout ratio, plaguing the online learning among Corporates, the Rewards based eLearning is a huge win for companies who have been investing in paid courses with no employee support.
Commenting on the development, Bhanu Prasad, COO, EdSanta Education, said, “What we realised from the very start was that we wanted to be different from all other Edtech endeavours. Most Edtech companies concentrate on the volume of content they can host while we at Elite, go beyond the content & focus on each member’s motivation and interest to make this a meaningful learning experience. The idea of ‘Elite Reward points’ is just a step in this direction. While reward points are not new in the shopping, banking and credit card environments, it’s the first time it’s being applied to learning. We’ve already seen a positive response from our membership. We believe this will increase engagement and take learning to a new level”.
Elite works on the new age concept that professionals learn best when knowledge is served in bite sizes, as per user convenience. In last 3 Months, the brand has already partnered with over 200 enterprises, to offer next gen learning solutions.
