Mumbai, March 3: Mumbai-based Ed tech startup Caymus Tech Ventures has announced inclusion of courses and programs from Harvard Business School, Chicago Booth, Harvard Kennedy School, Harappa Education, The Wharton School, and Stanford Online.

Lore.online users can now discover, compare, and enroll in both online and offline courses and programs including the following:

Emerging leaders can tap these offerings to build skills to complement their formal education and experienced professionals can leverage them to hone new age skills required to manage a younger, more globally aware workforce.

Kavita Mehta, Founder CEO, Caymus Tech, says, “Giving our learners the best-fit options has always been our driving factor, which is why we are excited to announce that learners can now access Harvard Business School's highly coveted online programs on Lore and avail quality learning options from anywhere in the world.”

“We are continuously adding quality course providers like INSEAD and Stanford, whose select courses are also live on the platform”, she adds.

Lore.online has also integrated an assessment system in their Learning Pathways, where after undertaking each course, a report is generated which outlines learners technical and non-technical strengths and weaknesses. The platform now also shows open jobs for which a learner can also apply.

Caymus’ enterprise platform LoreForTeams, which was rolled out in Nov 2019, has been updated with additional features.

The new look now comes with a dashboard, new UI for Lore-curated learning lists, discussion features and a personalised learning feed. LoreForTeams, a learning experience platform (LXP), is aimed at working professionals in mid size companies. By adding the LoreForTeams functionality layer, Caymus aims to offer a revolutionary platform for skilling. This segment is seeing tremendous growth as more working professionals look for learning options to upskill themselves and stay relevant in shifting employment and business environments. The global demand for such platforms is north of $200 billion and in India, demand is nascent yet growing and expected to reach $10 billion by 2025.

Kavita Mehta, Founder CEO, Caymus Tech, says, “We heard what our customers and users were telling us. They want a real time view of what their teams are learning, a two way feedback system, and a more focused curation of learning options. Thus, we decided to add these features in LoreForTeams platform so that learning never stops and working professionals continuously find relevant courses to upskill themselves. Our vision is to democratize learning so that everyone has equal access to the best options out there.”

CBSE: Core objective of NEP will be translated into action through NCF

The core objective of the new National Education Policy (NEP), which has given freedom for amalgamation of different concepts, will be translated into action through the National Curriculum Framework, CBSE director said on Friday.

CBSE Director Biswajit Saha made the comments during an e-conclave on the new NEP organised by the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

“The core objective of the policy will be translated into action through the National Curriculum Framework (NCF), which needs more participatory approach. The policy has given freedom for amalgamation of different concepts and multidisciplinary approach. The NCF will give a roadmap for implementation of reforms laid down in the policy,” he said.

Saha said the training required for competency-based education and learning outcomes can be achieved with progressive participation of stakeholders.

“There could be a debate about the training required for competency-based education and learning outcomes but once we have decided we want to do it, it can be achieved with progressive participation of stakeholders. It is a forward-looking policy,” the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) director said.

The NEP approved by the Union Cabinet replaces the 34-year-old National Policy on Education framed in 1986 and is aimed at paving the way for transformational reforms in school and higher education systems to make India a global knowledge superpower.

Choice between 3 or 4 year undergraduate courses, multiple entry and exit options in degree courses, adding 3.5 crore seats in higher education institutions, which will now have a single regulator, discontinuation of M.Phil programmes and fixation of fees are among the higher education reforms outlined in the new NEP.
