Foxmula aims at making Re-Skilling a new trend in online Ed-tech Space

Kolkata, Jun 7 (UNI) Online-education these days has become the new trend
with over 3.5 million users and thousands of courses being offered, across India.
This massive demand has a background to it, which lies in the theoretical and
traditional education methods being practiced in our system.
It cannot be said that the education system we have grown up with is completely
faulty, but the requirements of the youth and the competitive business environment
is way larger than the traditional methods cater to.
"Many people complain about the issue of practical knowledge among freshers
and sometimes even people with experience. But, it is only in recent times that
through online education, supplementary courses, Re-Skilling, upscaling practical
knowledge has formed a different aspect in the education system" says Ayush
Bansal, Founder of Foxmula.
The variety of courses that one can take are at par with the technological
upgradation across platforms.
There are massive enrollments for these courses, because they understand the
needs of students and professionals, they provide a platform to bring knowledge
into practice and most importantly they provide knowledge on subjects that
majorly remain untouched in regular courses.
By the end of 2020, there would be at least 6.8 million Indian users for online
courses, which would boost this entire industry by significant levels.
Foxmula an ed-tech startup by two engineering students, alone has attracted
more than 12,000 unique users in just 6 months and there are more to go.
Their courses on Machine Learning, Data Science, Deep Learning, node js,
react js etc., attract the youth more and this is where the future of technology
begins.
This shows how technology has intrigued the youth and their desire to push
their boundaries and get certified with unique learning modules.
"The best part about such courses is that the technology used are being backed
by the companies like Microsoft, IBM, SAP etc., that the world acknowledges in
terms of their technological contribution and upgradation in what we have today"
opined Shubham Sharda, Co-founder Foxmula.
This not only boosts, knowledge of the students and professionals, but it raises
their employability skills by manyfolds, making them eligible for their dream jobs.
