NEW DELHI — Singapore-based education technology company Teachee has announced its launch in India. A subsidiary of Vlight Technology Pte, the brand enters the Indian market due to massive success in South Korea.
Teachee already boasts of more than 35,000 educators on the platform since the launch of its beta in October of last year. The company’s vision is to become the most widely used SaaS platform for educators in the region.
Aakash Kasaundhan, an Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) Varanasi alumnus with more than ten years of startup experience and co-founder of two EdTech ventures, will lead the operations for Teachee in India.
“Teachee was created to help educators start up their own institute and have the ability to expand their business in a cost-effective manner,” said Kasaundhan.
“During the pandemic, the ability to teach and learn were pushed to the limits with people forced to turn to online platforms for learning.”
He said that it has also created a specialized learning platform that benefits both the educator and the student.
Before the India launch, our team of experts spent a lot of time in understanding the expectations, needs, and hurdles being faced by students and educators,” said Kasaundhan.
“These insights helped us to create a product that we feel will be a perfect fit for them.”
With online education gaining momentum in the country, Teachee is uniquely placed to help educators build a successful practice. Its revolutionary platform lets educators design a fully branded website without requiring any prior technical background.
The unique patented and secured platform allows instructors to build and curate their own curriculum with ease. Teachers and educators can now sell online courses, take tests & assignments, conduct live classes, share recorded videos and do much more.
Teachee’s user-friendly platform is engaging for teachers and students alike.
Teachers can chat with students and check their performance reports with just a couple of clicks.
The effective marketing solutions embedded in the platform helps institutes acquire students online with tools including Promo Codes, Affiliate Marketing, Blogs, Open Courses, etc.
Teachee also helps educators manage and analyze their revenue on their dashboards.
It plans to disrupt the EdTech SaaS market in the Asia Pacific region. Following the India launch, the platform will be launched in ten countries by the end of 2022.
India is becoming one of the top locations for building a startup.
A report said that in 2020, enterprise technology had the highest share of startups, with 15 percent.
