Giving educators and institutions the flexibility to build their own journeys, being offline, online, or hybrid in a fast-changing world, will help them be relevant and fully equipped to succeed in their digital transformation. On the student side, it is all about impact and access to educators they can relate to and trust, while being mobile and tech relevant. oktopi will now help learners find a dedicated educator who has the right tools to help them in their learning objectives, all in a ‘school in your pocket’ solution.”
Through this acquisition, over 20,000 tutors have joined oktopi’s growing family and were introduced to the company’s cutting-edge workspace for education.
