Utilizing the power of internet technology, GlobalScholar.com is an online platform for teachers, students, administrators and other education professionals to develop, disseminate and review curriculum. The company goes one step beyond that to figure out ways to implement such curriculum into schools. Focused on K-12 education, the venture is currently searching for a CEO to head is India division.
Their platform for schools helps them create, manage and align content within schools so each students has a personalized monitor with special recommendations for each student. … [T]hey also try and get parents in the loop by sending them updates of what children are learning constantly and also supplementing those updates with material that might be useful – so its sort of a home education eco system of you might.
The platform also is able to provide online tutoring — a feature that I personally would have loved in college and even now in law school. Here is a video of the software.
The founder, Kal Raman, has now turned to India as the company’s next major market.
India has 250 Million children currently under the age of 18, so Kal believes that there is a huge market to be explored. According to research by GlobalScholar.com, other competitors such as Educomp and Everon have only been able to penetrate about 1% of the market and thus there are opportunities for many players to co exist in this industry.
