April 8, 2021

Wizenoze has opened its new office at New Delhi in India, enabling Wizenoze to develop a complete, India specific learning ecosystem with local content, curators and curriculum developers. Wizenoze technology provides learners access to the best educational information on the internet that matches their curriculum, age and reading level. Wizenoze claims its vast, searchable digital library curated to be expansive, diverse, reliable, and safe. The products are easily integrated into schools’ learning platforms and are hugely increasing the learning experience and outcomes.

Diane Janknegt, Wizenoze CEO and founder says, “Our vision is to connect a complete generation of learners in India to the best content on the internet and support communities in minimising the learning impact of COVID disruption.”

Wizenoze has onboarded Suchindra Kumar, as the newly appointed Wizenoze country director, India. He will lead and develop the Wizenoze offering for the India region. Prior to his appointment as Country Director, Suchindra Kumar was Executive Director – Business Consulting for EY, leading its education sector consulting business in India. He has a deep understanding of the Indian education space and policy frameworks with an overall industry experience of over 18 years.

Suchindra quotes, “India is a developing country, where resources are limited by competing priorities. We are excited to be able to integrate the best content into the academic experience of every Indian learner, thereby globalising education and outlook in an Indian context”.

India has the highest number of school going children in the world and over the last decade, the focus of the education system has moved from promoting access to education to improving the quality of learning. Many learners are first time internet users, and have limited
guidance on using online content for the purpose of learning. With the disruption caused by the global pandemic, the learning process has been severely impacted. The average student spends over 18 hours of time per week learning on the internet however, a lack of quality
content is impeding the impact of online learning, Wizenoze aims to address this problem.
