Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
Technology experts and learners all over the world in a single web site, Ncore Media’s newest product, LearnersParadise.com, revolutionizes learning in the Internet age.
“Even today, with all our resources, the quickest and easiest way to learn something is to simply ask someone,” says Sam Rao, spokesman for Ncore Media. “That isn’t always possible in person, so LearnersParadise.com hooks up students with mentors and experts all over the planet to achieve just that.”
Using a marketplace model, experts realize the market value of their knowledge on the web site (available at http://www.LearnersParadise.com). LearnersParadise.com functions as a peer-to-peer virtual training institute, targeting consumers who wish to learn specific things on specific subjects.
After the learner selects the mentor, the mentor holds live sessions in online classrooms, using LearnersParadise.com’s state-of-the-art learning platform and tools. Different price models like group pricing, auction-based and fixed pricing allow a market-driven pricing of services. Crucially, the web site holds the fees paid to the mentor until the learner is satisfied with the sessions. This not only facilitates learning for the students, it also helps experts monetize their hard-won knowledge.
Many people who have taken such training online have been very happy with the quality of trainers and appreciate the convenience to learn it from home, avoiding a painful commute to some training institute. “Almost all the customers we get are through word-of-mouth,” says Mr. Rao.
“This was my first distance learning class, and it went way beyond my expectations. Jagan, our online trainer, is an excellent instructor and very knowledgeable about the topic,” says Gordana Mrkailo, a user who signed up for the Informatica and Data Warehousing course. “It is a great learning experience with added convenience and worth the money paid!”
Trainers who have registered on the site are mostly senior professionals in their respective fields. They love the creative aspect of teaching and a steady side income, all from the comfort of their home. “It is quite fun teaching people and getting their thank you note when they get jobs,” says Sam Badri, who registered his Business Objects course four months ago for $650. The course runs for 30 hrs over 3 weeks in the evenings. Ever since then, he has been getting regular inflows of students. He has trained students from the US, the UK and even India over the last few months. The reason people come is because it is quite affordable for individual w/o exorbitant cost associated with on-site classroom training, no taking leave from office and no extra commute. Badri says: “Students love the live learning aspect of it, and the fact they don’t see me during training becomes a complete non-issue.”
