Vedantu unveils Augmented Interactive Live for affordable online Ed

  • Ai Live will cut down Vedantu’s course price point from $327 to $65
  • The technology is expected to expand Vedantu’s student count to 1 million in 2022

Indian online tutoring platform, Vedantu has reportedly introduced Augmented Interactive (Ai) Live technology, which is expected to enhance accessibility and affordability of quality education.

With Ai Live, Vedantu plans on reducing its course price point – previously $327 – to $65, which will provide the company a competitive edge against its peers like UpGrad, Byju’s, Simplilearn, Amazon Academy, and Unacademy.

Vamsi Krishna, CEO and Co-founder of Vedantu, states that though reducing price points via discounts is simpler, it affects margins and so the platform has designed an innovative technology that allows the company to offer courses at rates 1/3rd and 1/5th of what its rivals offer.

Krishna quoted that the idea is to boost accessibility and affordability of quality education for all in India by leveraging all of its learnings derived from the concept teaching applied in millions of Live classes and channelling it into the core concept of teaching.

He added that such amalgamation has allowed Vedantu to reduce prices considerably to as low as $0.13 per hour. For instance, if one pays $1,308 for an offline coaching class of a JEE Course per year, through Ai Live, it will only cost them $65.29 a year.

As per Krishna, the latest innovation will amplify Vedantu’s 250,000 unique paying students reported last year to approximately 1 million this year.

Essentially, the interactive classes provided by Ai Live will be for Classes 6 to 12, with a curriculum based on ICSE, Maharashtra Boards, CBSE, and even for competitive exams like NTSE, JEE, and NEET.

Interactive features of Ai Live

Vedantu’s Augmented Interactive Live features unique offerings such as leader-boards, real-time doubt solving, and quizzes.

With this, Class Teachers – during a live class with students fully immersed in the interactive teaching environment pre-created by the Master Teacher – will unfailingly address each student’s query and solve their doubts in real-time.
