An extension of the nationwide lockdown, ordered by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the 14th of April, has resulted in India’s IT aspirants opting for home education. Following the suspension of face-to-face classrooms, Jetking quickly moved at scale towards virtual learning. It has slashed its course fees by 50% and also introduced courses in CCNA, Python, Ethical Hacking, AWS and so on, starting at just Rs. 5000 to facilitate learning for students.
The sessions for these courses will be conducted at a pre-announced fixed time. Video recording of each session will be available for those students who wish to take the lectures at a later time. The sessions will be conducted by experts and will promote collaborative learning through interaction with learners from other locations. Students will also receive e-certificates post course completion.
Commenting on this development, Siddarth Bharwani, VP – Brand & Marketing, Jetking said, “IT aspirants across India are suffering due to the stoppage of the congregation in colleges, schools and coaching centres because of the current pandemic. Hence all classes at Jetking have moved online to mitigate academic loss. We have leveraged technology widely and we are taking more and more programs online. With this move, not only will the students continue learning, but also stay on schedule on the academic activities for the session.”
