The platform offers interactivity similar to a live classroom session, where a student sitting in any part of the country, at any given point in time, can interact freely with the professor, raise questions, queries, etc. making the interaction as spontaneous and natural as in a regular classroom. There is extensive use of two video, voice and data. The pedagogy is highly interactive. It consists of a judicious blend of lectures, real life case studies, quizzes, assignments, etc.

Additionally, since the course curriculum is designed keeping in mind the needs, expertise and skills of the professionals there is focused and optimal learning from premier institutes and its faculty, giving students a career edge.
