Improve job candidacy through fun and engaging learning games
Is it justified to judge a person by their degree?
The education system of our society has always been in a pool of questions regarding the kind of approach they use for defining a person’s abilities. People often fail to put up their bookish knowledge into practice. All those sacrifices, hard work and time is taken to acquire knowledge is way more than the moment taken to judge a person.
The co-founders Indranil Sarkar and Anant Gupta after completing their MBA degree from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania returned to India and teamed up with Amit Arora and Varun Dutt to develop a free app, nHance that’d provide step-by-step modules for the people who want to brush up their business skills on the go.
Founded last year, the fledgling company was chosen as one of 12 startups in Village Capital’s Education: India 2016 program, sponsored by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation. Based in Singapore and Bangalore, nHance announced US$300,000 in seed funding from education entrepreneur and investor Mohan Lakhamraju, operator of the Great Lakes chain of business schools.
Speed learning made fun
Over 200 learning games are available on the app,games that apply proven retrieval practice learning methods and behavioral science techniques to develop the user’s understanding of core job skills, industry knowledge, and general business awareness. They aim to make it easier for every professional to learn and become more competitive job seekers. The app records the progress of the user on the basis of the short exercises that helps the user to think beyond the pages bound in the books as it is faster to grab a lesson through simple and fascinating activities.
Since its first release this January, nHance has been downloaded over 10,000 times. After downloading the app, it asks about the user’s preferences and it provides them with short and effective lessons accordingly. It includes videos and images as it’s helpful when the user can relate to the surrounding examples making the concept retain accordingly.
The app focuses on deriving management insights from fun games to reveal a very Indian approach to modern business. Now the question that arises is, whether a piece of paper earned in the real world holds more importance or the statistical data calculated by a virtual application that analyzes the practical clarity of a person for the real world does?
