Los Angeles-based startup, eduFire.com, delivers an alternative to language learning online with its new real-time, in-browser video platform. eduFire's website allows students to access teachers anywhere in the world, and gives tutors the opportunity to conduct their sessions through video and voice connections on the eduFire site.
"The goal is to empower hundreds of thousands of people to make a living teaching people what they are most passionate about over the web," Jon Bischke, CEO/Founder, said. "We're starting with foreign language training which according to some estimates is a $20 billion market globally."
eduFire.com launched in February and has become one of the fastest growing language learning resources on the web with over 1,500 members and 30 different languages.
eduFire's simplicity is attractive to students and tutors; the site's built-in platform is easy to use and eliminates the need to download any software. The site offers students a plethora of tools for online language learning including videos, flashcards, podcasts and forums. The community plays a vital role by identifying the best teachers through user feedback and ratings.
eduFire's mission is simple; Revolutionize Education. eduFire is dedicated to creating a platform that allows live video learning to take place over the internet anytime from anywhere for anyone. eduFire is the first online language learning site that's completely open and community-driven.
