How is this online learning platform different from Udemy, Coursera, other MOOCs and Lynda?
This site is managed by Abhisam, the leaders in ecourses for engineers and technicians. It is not an online learning platform where anybody can start his or her own course instantly by opening an account. All subject matter experts (who are industry veterans with minimum of 20 years of actual technical experience, not just teaching or training) are carefully vetted by Abhisam, they give their inputs and then Abhisam creates the course with the help of Learning Designers, animators and programmers to create every ecourse.
Note that or courses that are on recently developed technology such as IoT or Blockchain, subject matter experts are people who have demonstrated competency in the subject for a few years, not necessarily 20 years (since for a new technology such as blockchain, one cannot have somebody with two decades of experience as blockchain did not exist 20 year ago!)
Every ecourse is of high quality, highly tuned to industry requirements, has actual use cases from the relevant industrial or technical sectors and ultimately condenses several decades of experience into a course that you can complete in just a few hours!
If you are a subject matter expert and you think you can contribute to an online learning program, then please get in touch with us via email.
Every e-learning course is a mix of text, voice, videos, animations, simulations, exercises, real life examples, photos and so on structured in a very logical and interesting manner, so that we start from Basic Concepts and then work our way up to the complex subjects.
It is not simply a Video or a series of videos with a guy or girl standing next to a whiteboard and speaking.
So our model is different from them.
