BasicFirst, an e-learning platform, announced the launch of its ‘LIVE Online Classes’, on Monday. The platform further revealed that the new service will be available on their platform in nine Indian languages within the next three months.
The ‘LIVE Online Classes’ program will allow students to choose from their preferred language, which include English, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, Telegu, Oriya, Bangla and Marathi, as a medium of learning. The regional language feature is aimed for students of non-metropolitan cities, whose preferred language might not be English, and the levels of comfort for students lie in learning in their regional language.
Since its inception in February this year, BasicFirst has had two products namely the ‘Doubt Clearing Programme’ and ‘Rent-a-Tab’. While the first product enables a student preparing for any examination from classes six to 12 across India, to get their doubts clarified through chat/phone/video, ‘Rent-a-Tab’ allows students access to the country’s most affordable education Tablet at Rs 750 a month.
Other than the multi-language support, the other unique feature of the Live Online Classes program will be that it will allow students to choose a specific subject(s) instead of group of subjects, according to their need. According to a statement by the company, the online classes also provide the students the option of a ‘one-to-one class’, where a teacher is available for a single student, or a ‘one-to-many class’, where a batch of students with similar subjects are clubbed together for co-learning experience.
