LEARN THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES FROM THE EXPERTS
WITH 24X7 CODING SUPPORT
THE ACADGILD ADVANTAGE
AcadGild, which is launching in the U.S, takes a somewhat different approach from some of its competitors. Its programs combine small classes (with no more than 10 students) and a focus on mentorship from experienced teachers and 24/7 support with a project-based approach. All of this happens online, but classes still (virtually) meet on set days and times to go over the material.
Two Bangalore-based school students have used their summer holidays to not only learn the nuances of building apps, but even created one that helps users make pledges around social causes.
AcadGild, which only offers online courses, was founded by a group of IT professionals based out of India and California. One of the unique aspects of AcadGild is that the classes are small, with only 3 to 5 students per course.
Technology education startup AcadGild on Saturday launched social app vPledge developed by its teenage students, 12-year- old Prateek Mahesh and 13-year- old Priyal Jain. vPledge stimulates the general public to pick up and fulfil social causes like plant 10 trees, donate food to 10 people, using public transport only and others.
