ACUMEN FOR E-LEARNING

Empowering learning globally.

Acumen is a software that helps bridge the gap between distance learners and educators. Learners can view lectures in real time, ask doubts, answer questions in the class, and reach out to professors at any point during the course. Learners can also share research with peers, discuss ideas and collaborate on projects in virtual workspaces through interactive tools.

SYNCHRONOUS
LEARNING.

Acumen as an application facilitates scheduled courses where learners attend real time video enabled lectures at specified timings.

The entire course follows a structured format, meaning lectures, discussions and submissions happen at a specified time.

ASYNCHRONOUS
LEARNING.

Learners also have the option of taking up courses which allow them to learn at their own pace.

They are provided the content beforehand, and given a deadline before which they need to complete course readings and assignment submissions.
