Experiential learning with exercises, reflection and social sharing ensures you have an engaging learner experience. We strive to combine deep learning principles with simple storytelling.
Not at all! Remember Aesop’s Fables, Panchatantra and the likes? And all the lessons you learnt as a kid? The human mind is naturally hooked to stories. Learning about different concepts through stories can improve your retention seven-fold.
Our course is structured into 6 modules. Each of these comprises animated video lessons, flashcards, application and reflection exercises which will make it engaging for you.
The total duration of the course is 6 hours. You have the choice to either take it up in one burst or to engage with it in bite sized sessions. You can access the course on your mobile or the web browser, anytime, anywhere. This course will be accessible to you for a period of 90 days from the time of enrolment.
While learning can be done alone, it can sometimes be a boring experience. When the experience is boring, we tend to remember very little of it, let alone applying it. Our courses are designed such that you get the opportunity to learn from reading the views and responses of other learners like yourself. You will also have the choice of sharing your thoughts and views with your fellow explorers.
