LIVE online tutoring platform, Vedantu, has also gone physical and just opened its first hybrid centre In Bihar’s Muzaffarpur. The company is proposing more such centres in future in other tier 2-tier 3 cities and is likely to enter into direct competition with coaching centre brands. There is, however, one difference, While the Master Teachers will be LIVE and teaching remotely, the classes will be supervised by a class teacher present physically to coordinate and monitor student’s progress.
Vedantu Learning Center will offer courses to cover preparation for IIT JEE and NEET, a two-year course for students of Grade 11th and a one-year course for dropper batch. As per a release by the company students will be divided into a batch of twenty-five per class to ensure every child gets personalized attention by India’s Top Master teachers, to unleash their full potential. Every student will be provided their personal Wi-Fi and 4G enabled tablet, to interact in class and study at home. Students will also have access to more than 1500 Tatva Smart books to offer round the clock support to students.
Speaking about the launch, Vamsi Krishna, CEO & Co-Founder, Vedantu said “Exams such as JEE and NEET are high-stakes exams and after speaking with so many parents over the years, we understand that these competitive exams require dedicated supervision & personalized attention, and our current hybrid model facilitates this for students in tier 3 and tier 4 cities. Keeping this in mind and our mission to create “Impact at Scale,” we are proud to launch our first of many hybrid Vedantu Learning Centers.
