Seeders Venture Capital invests in Bangalore based startup company Eduora.com, an online social learning platform that’s aims at changing the online education paradigm. The financial terms of the funding have not been disclosed.Founded in March 2011, the company, led by it’s founder Nagarjun Palavalli has been building an online, cloud based platform that combines the social elements of the Internet with the tools offered by a Learning Management System (LMS). Currently in private alpha, the network is expected to be launched in late 2011.
“The idea is that traditional Learning Management Systems are dull and un-engaging for students to use” says the founder, Nagarjun Palavalli who draws from his experience as a student at an institution that used such systems. “We plan to fix all the broken elements of such systems together and package it in a social network like structure. A central system similar to Facebook or Linkedin that’s void of private installations.”, he continued. The social network like structure of the network would mean that students and colleges all hold the same hierarchy on the network. The company believes that all stake holders can gain immense value from such a structure.
The beta version of the product will be available in late 2011 at eduora.com
