MOOCs will also provide teachers with an opportunity to communicate and collaborate with their peers all over India and the Middle East for a deeper understanding of the topics. An online certificate will also be given to all the teachers on the successful completion of each course.
Commenting on the launch, Beas Dev Ralhan, Co-founder and CEO, NextEducation India Pvt.

The newly launched online courses on our Next Gurukul accelerate a learner-centric environment for the teachers to interact with their peers across the country and stay abreast with innovative ways of teaching-learning aspects. Our ultimate intention is to offer teachers the right training so that they can explore the latest trends in the K-12 learning ecosystem and initiate a journey towards imparting transformative education to the students.”
