Our mission is to create a very low cost and yet highly effective continuous IT learning platform. Our success criteria is to create successful IT career or IT based entrepreneurs in the longer term.
In this post, on behalf of IT Versity – I will explain the training philosophy of IT Versity. Also I will try to respond to questions and suggestions from the well wishers.
- Why training is free or insanely cheap?
- People might perceive that training is of low quality
Issues with current training model
At IT Versity, we believe that there are some limitations with respect to training in emerging technologies.
Issues with respect to trainers
First let us see the issues with respect to trainers or institutes
- Lack of quality in the training
- Cost from qualified vendors is very expensive
- Very tough to catch up with the pace at which technologies are evolving for the trainers
- Real world exposure
- 4 day training is not good enough
- Tough to provide support for long term training
- Different students come from different background and it is very tough to provide 100% value to each individual.
- Combination of quality trainers and online platforms such as Simplilearn or Edureka is not sustainable
- Most of the trainers from Edureka or Simplilearn work part time and lack skill or real world experience or hugely under paid
Issues with respect to trainees
Now let us see the issues from the trainees
- Most of the trainees are different levels
- They come from different past work experience
- Learning curve for each individual is significantly different
- Lack of commitment
- Even working employees, try to exploit online training – I have seen a bunch of people who took pride because 5 people attended a big data training with 1 fee. But in the end they did not learn any thing
- Blame trainers rather than self introspect
IT Versity philosophy
At IT Versity we try to address both issues related to trainers and trainees
Solution with respect to trainers
- We do not focus on hiring trainers
- We will form a small group of highly experienced professionals who have passion towards teaching and technology
- We spend at least 50% of time in coming up quality content by keeping up with the changes in technology
- With rich experience, we bring real world experience on to the table
- We focus on creating high quality self paced content leveraging YouTube. Our channel is itversity
- We are trying to pool talent who believe in our philosophy to provide round the clock support
- Provide platform to perform R&D and create high quality content
Solution with respect to trainees
- They can learn at their own pace for free
- Online live at 1/10th cost of vendors. Our quality of training is at least on par with leading vendors.
- We prefer online live training in business hours, so that there will not be any distraction for trainees as it will be approved by the management.
- Certification oriented training
- No incentive to take us for granted
What is it for IT Versity?
We understand most of my friends and well wishers are curious about why we are doing it at a very low cost.
- We are trying to bring all IT professionals to one platform
- In future we want to get into staffing solutions leveraging the talent pool
- Build a brand to achieve our long term goals – such as create IT driven entrepreneurs
- There is huge potential to generate considerable revenue in the form of ads, corporate training, freelance consulting etc.
- As of today, we started getting direct leads for corporate training eliminating middle layer
- Our clientele include NEC Technologies, Tavant and several leads from other IT companies
I would like to conclude this post, by saying we are committed to provide 100x value to our consumers with our solutions, be it training or any other product we will launch in future. Your time, commitment and loyalty are the investment and foundation for our future together. We welcome constructive feedback to make it better for you.
