OKpanda is an English learning platform that includes instant messaging, live voice, and digital curricula. In the same way Uber allows anybody with a car to be a Limo service, they allow any qualified English teacher to build their own English classroom.
They target the multi-billion dollar English learning space in Asia, the majority of whose revenues still go to brick and mortar language schools. Their first focus is Japan, a huge market with horrible learning outcomes where they can save individual learners thousands of dollars while still providing live online instruction and great digital learning tools.
Despite a growing amount of great (and free) content, a learner’s problem is knowing what to use, how to use it, and not giving up. Their teachers create unique personalized learning paths for students using OKpanda’s live-video classes and cutting edge digital curricula. We solve students’ #1 cause of failure, giving up, while delivering an awesome learning experience.
