Get Me A Course wants to make Indian online education market ‘efficient’
Edtech startup Get Me A Course is hoping to become a leading player in India’s $2 billion online education market by bringing ‘efficiency’ to consumers.
Having grown by a multiple of eight since 2016, the online education market in India is expected to reach the $1.96 billion mark in the next two years.
A total of 9.6 million users are expected to be paying for online courses in India alone by 2021.
The current data from a joint report by KPMG and Google indicate that “reskilling and online certification courses” command the major chunks of this market, this is expected to change in the near future.
India has an estimated 280 million students enrolled in schools, and the demand is therefore expected to shift towards the online primary and secondary supplemental education.
Get Me A Course aggregates online courses to a single platform
Get Me A Course is a breakthrough platform that aggregates worldwide online courses onto a single platform. This helps global learners find their courses of interest seamlessly and guide them with content based on their interests and industry trends.
Speaking to YourStory, Rohan Krishna, CEO and Co-Founder of the Bengaluru-based start-up, said: “The model is very similar to travel aggregation sites and apps that list all the different airlines, hotels, and travel service providers. GMAC is bringing the same efficiency to education and skilling.”
The company’s founding team had all personally faced the dilemma of finding the right skills and upskilling as they navigated their careers.
GMAC hopes to help both senior professionals and the unemployed youth on the path for career advancement by guiding them towards the skills which are crucial to rise up within their industries.
GMAC’s online course aggregator’s skill-based career recommendation engine, called “Gravity”, helps individuals identify their current standing with respect to skills and pay scales.
Hence, it outlines the succeeding levels in the career ladder a learner can upgrade to, along with the expected pay range and required skills set along the given trajectory.
