“Think out of the box and create a learning experience where the learner can interact with the content and their brains,” well said by Rosalie Ledda Valdez, one of the profound learning experts.

Online learning platforms are increasingly doing big business across the world.  They are bringing excellent ways of learning for individuals in every part of this planet.

If you consider yourself an oldie to attend a classroom session, online learning is the perfect for you. These startups have been successful in raising ample funds from investors and incubators all across the globe. For instance, a Tanzanian edutainment startup, Ubongo, teaching mathematics to kids in a fun way, has gained a seed funding of US$75,000 and has secured a position in the list of the world’s top 10 most innovative companies of 2015 in Africa.

e-learning startups from India are not far behind in the race. The strengthening economy is helping such startups to register an impressive growth year over year. Bangalore-based Simplilearn is a clear winner in the segment, while Intellipaat, another Jaipur based e-learning startup, is also marking its presence. All such startups offer training courses on niche technologies like Big data, Data Science, Business Intelligence, Database, Digital Marketing and many others.

Thailand’s SkillLane is a popular startup in self-paced learning on young-professional segments of the market covering Computer, Soft Skills, Test Preparation, Entrepreneurship and Investment.

We all now understand that learning online is much more convenient and easier, which is why most individuals are gravitating towards learning on their laptops and mobile phones. A major reason contributing to the progress of these online training providers is that they have reached to your mobile phones. No wonder, we spend much of our time with our smartphone- it is our companion for necessity, luxury, education, entertainment and everything else. You can learn a core technology course like Tableau or Hadoop, anywhere on your device.

Most Industry-experts prefer associating with such learning startups as they find it meaningful to educate people around and thus, earning dollars just by sitting at their place. Since the competition is tough with an increasing number of online education platforms, each startup is focusing on providing an incredibly brilliant trainer who let learners apply what they have learnt in real-time projects in their organization. Similarly, they are making huge efforts in delivering quality content on their website, tutorials, blogs, interview questions, assignments and videos.
