OTTAWA, May 31, 2018 -betterU Education Corp. (the “Company” or “betterU”), is pleased to announce that it continues to expand its global education partnerships, having recently added over 700 more global programs to their platform. These additional partnerships include WIISE Learning Network, Pointsbuild, Internshala, Simple and Real Analytics, TCYonline, CareerCo, Henry Harvin and GlobalExam. These offerings will add additional business and technology programs, vocational training options, exam preparation support, internship placement opportunities and assessments to the betterU platform.
The building of a global education platform required to support millions of people across many industries, domains and levels of learning requires many partnerships from around the world. Through extensive research and development efforts, betterU continues to scope out, map against India requirements, locate and partner with educators and service providers to meet these needs.
The scope of education that is essential to support mass populations like India would need to include millions of content pieces and could easily incorporate thousands of partnerships. betterU’s founder, Brad Loiselle, has been quoted many times saying that in order to provide education to all, it requires education from all. Mass collaboration of educators is the only way a single platform can support access and availability to everyone. The collective collaboration of content from many global partners and providers also enables the opportunity for unique data mining that would support customized solutions.
betterU’s partnerships not only come from within India, but also from Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France and many other European countries. “There is a significant change coming in how people consume education. Through globalization, technology advancements and innovation by groups like betterU, emerging markets now have the ability to learn and compete on a global scale. I am honoured to be a part of the team that is helping advance such important opportunities,” said Kate O’Neil, Director of Partnership Implementation.
betterU continues to expand their partner acquisition teams around the world with offices in Canada, Switzerland and Australia. With the goal of educating global leaders about the opportunity for working together for the collective good, the Company has set its targets on countries with governments focused on supporting India.
betterU, a global education-to-employment platform, aims to provide access to quality education from around the world to foster growth and opportunity to those who want to better their lives. The company plans to bridge the prevailing gap in the education and job industry and enhance the lives of its prospective learners by developing an integrated education-to-employment ecosystem. betterU’s offerings can be categorized into several broad functions: to complement school programs with flexible KG-12 programs preparing children for next stage of education, to provide access to global educational opportunities from leading educators, to foster an exceptional educational environment by providing befitting skills that lead to a better career, to bridge the gap between one’s existing education and prospective job requirement by training them and lastly, to connect the end user to various job opportunities.
