Why did you choose this particular idea and concept to build your start-up on?:
Most of the competitors provide an online platform that offer features such as the ability for the instructor to upload some files, create a course, and sell it using their e-commerce tools. BrainCert goes beyond just selling online courses by offering a comprehensive set of synchronous and asynchronous educational tools built in both E-Learning Platform and Enterprise LMS product offerings. The result – significant cost savings, increasing productivity, and secure, seamless and enhanced user experience across all platforms.
Testing is an integral part of training. It is paramount for recognizing skills decay. Assessment should be done on a continuous basis, and BrainCert’s Online Testing Platform is the perfect choice to measure, analyze, and view results of the test takers online easily.
U.S. firms spent about $156 billion on employee learning in 2011, the most recent data available, according to the American Society for Training and Development. But with little practical follow-up or meaningful assessments, some 90% of new skills are lost within a year, some research suggests.
Most of the training platforms out there do not offer a built-in collaboration layer that is imperative for seamless synchronous and asynchronous collaboration capabilities between presenter (teacher) and attendees (students). BrainCert’s Virtual Classroom can help bridge the gap and functions in nearly the same way as a traditional physical classroom.
Although, face to face component may not be feasible solution to offer synchronicity in online courses, virtual classrooms have a far greater potential to reach out to individual students across the geographies.
A soup-to-nuts solution for students and instructors, BrainCert offer tools to deliver interactive and blended courses online using the Courses Platform. With BrainCert’s powerful course creation tools, you can easily create, manage and publish the course in just a few clicks. Finally, BrainCert integrates seamlessly with PayPal and Stripe to sell your tests, courses, and live classes for faster revenue.
