An innovative platform for real-time learning

Jain (Deemed-to-be University) is on the cusp of launching an exciting online learning and engagement platform for connecting and sharing of ideas, resources and expertise.

Going by the acronym JUx, the new innovation aims at creating a virtual learning and social engagement experience that will be easily accessible any time, anywhere and through convenient learning formats for its users even as it acts as an incubator for novel initiatives that address critical leaners’ issues.

While the primary aim of the platform is to help the students, faculty and researches at the University, it has the substantial added value in technology transfer and commercialisation. As the platform is set to go online this July, it will offer a host of learning options for learners including certification courses that are predominantly self-paced and instructor-led, joint certifications with industry and reputed professional bodies, certifications through partners identified from Connect to Careers, Global Immersion Courses that are blended learning as well as post graduate diploma and other diploma courses approved by the University and aimed at creating and enhancing a seamless learning experience.

An integral component of the arrangement is the unique collaboration of Jain (Deemed-to-be University) and industry partners, aggregators as well as global industrial giants. At the forefront will be Gartner, Inc., the world’s leading research and advisory company. The partnership will give learners access to the Gartner Research repository.

“This unique offering that no other platforms offer will be a great advantage for students working on their research projects,” explains Mr. Jayaprakash Reddy, Senior Manager – Corporate Relations, Jain (Deemed-to-be University). The initiative will also have Internshala and Firstnaukri onboard showcasing employment and internship opportunities. Resume Highlighter, a feature of Firstnaukri will highlight the profile of a learner to prospective employers upon completion of their courses.

Mentorship programme has also been added to the platform that will give the learner an opportunity to connect with industry experts, innovators and leaders. It will showcase reputed mentors one can choose from, based on the industry, expertise and interest group.

A learner who wishes to take up mentorship under an expert will have the provision to directly interact with them first by sending
a message and thereafter connect and interact with the experts on board.The learners will be able to access the content in various formats like documents, presentations, videos, caselets, etc.

“The mode of content delivery would be Self-Paced Learning, Instructor Led Learning (Webinar), Classroom Learning and Blended Learning,” adds Mr. Jayaprakash Reddy.

Thus stated, JUx stands to benefit users to learn and scale best practices as the quest to develop services that keep Jain (Deemed -to-be University) at the forefront of innovations continues to unfurl.
