Chandigarh,  May  06,  2020:-Edtech  major  upGrad,  India'largeshigher  education provider just moved their start dates for all their 40 courses to start every month instead of quarterly, to take on the surge in demand from working professionals. This has more than doubled their course capacity, and each class now has a peak of 1000 learners at a given time.
Ronnie Screwvala, Co-founder and Executive Chairman, upGrad said that the larger the class in online, the more active the peer-to-peer learning and so it's the inverse of offline learning.
He added that last month we reached 5, 00,000 learners for our online programs, which is no mean feat in itself. Now take into consideration that our average ARPU is INR 2.5 lakhs. Yet, we are only at the very start of addressing a market of over 100 million working professionals and graduates.
