About ipassio

At ipassio, we endeavor to be world’s most technologically advanced and credible platform for e-learning. We work towards creating a user friendly, live learning platform for hobbies.

We intend to fill the gap that exists for students in finding experienced and knowledgeable teachers, to learn a hobby. The ipassio platform enables teachers with proficient technology support for course and student management that ensures a hassle free teaching experience. Be it enrolment of a student, course structure, class strength, scheduling, rescheduling or collection and disbursal of course fee, every aspect of a teacher’s journey to provide students with top class training is taken care of. ipassio’s technology also provides teachers with a robust repository for all their course material,The repository makes the course material accessible, as and when required.

Students have the advantage of learning exactly, what they desire, from the best in the field. They are at liberty to choose from a wide selection of distinctly designed courses. The maximum strength of a class is maintained to a minimal number. This safeguards students from attention deficit, meaning each student gets individual attention from the teacher, at all times.

Sustained guidance from teachers after classes ensures students are not consumed by their questions, instead they find a solution or an answer to their queries within hours. Students through discussion forums, establish beneficial peer to peer relationships. Guided and monitored by the teacher, the discussion forums, find no room for deviation. Regular assessment and feedback by the teacher guarantees that every effort of students is accounted for.
