Offline digital learning centres: In February this year, Meritnation announced plans of launching six new offline digital learning centres, starting with Chandigarh and Lucknow. The model behind these centres was piloted by the company 2 years back by launching a centre in Gurgaon in 2012, and subsequently launching four more centres in Jaipur in 2014. The company was also looking to launch franchisee deals in cities in Punjab and Rajasthan.

At the time, Meritnation had told MediaNama that its centres will run a highly modified version of the online course, which is regimented differently. Students will first be tested to check their understanding, followed by topical study through animated videos & other content. They are also provided with interactive exercises to help develop interest in the subject and are given worksheets to practice at home. Every class ends with a test.

Previously, Meritnation had launched its online lecture program Meritnation LIVE targeted at CBSE students between standards 6-10, in November 2014. The program offers online live classes for Science & Maths from MeritNation’s chosen faculty. In April 2013, the company had launched complete study material from class 6 to 10 for Maharashtra board. Prior to this, it had also completely redesigned its website making it easier for users to navigate quickly and connect with friends.
