IIM Calcutta to offer digital classes over TalentSprint’s iPearl.ai

Entire term will be in a direct-to-device mode, says Director

IIM Calcutta will use iPearl.ai, a digital learning delivery platform developed by the Hyderabad-based TalentSprint, to offer its upcoming academic term in online mode.

Beginning next month, the new and the existing students of its MBA programme will take the classes in digital mode.

“The students will attend the entire term in a direct-to-device mode,” Anju Seth, Director of IIM Calcutta, said.

“Covid-19 and social distancing presented us with an unprecedented challenge this year. As we reopen in online mode, it is equally important that we sustain our academic rigour and preserve our unique teaching and learning experience,” the Director said.

“The digital learning platform iPearl.ai offers seamless user experience and real-world like interactions between faculty and students,” Santanu Paul, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TalentSprint, said.
