Progate started to provide the programming learning service “Progate” to 10,000 students at the Bombay campus beginning in June 2021. The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) is one of the top national universities in the Republic of India, specializing in engineering and technology. It is reputed to be one of the most difficult universities in India to gain admission to, with more than 100 applicants competing for one spot with a total of 10,000 seats available each year.

Progate, an online programming learning service you can learn immediately Progate is an online learning service that allows users to start learning to program whenever they are ready to take their first steps into programming. Since July 2021, Progate has broken 2.2 million learners worldwide. While the general study of programming requires preparation like “environmental building” to begin development, Progate uses proprietary technology to remove all the obstacles at the entrance to learning, allowing you to learn right away with just a browser or an app. On top of that, by utilizing meticulously planned content using designed slides instead of videos, users can learn without worrying too much about video buffering due to a bad internet connection. Progate will continue to develop its programming learning service with the aim of delivering the world’s most easy-to-understand programming materials to the world. The Indian government’s National Education Policy 2020 In India, the effects of the COVID-19 forced the closure of schools and prevented approximately 200 million school-age children from receiving a traditional education, leading to the increased use of online learning. In July 2020, India’s Ministry of Education released the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP2020), (*2), the first revision of its overall education system policy in 34 years. Among other things, the policy calls for promoting the use of EdTech such as online learning. Progate India was established in India in August 2018 and has been providing online programming learning services via web and smartphone apps. As of August 2021, the number of registered users in India has exceeded 230,000. Having been recognized by the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, which is attracting attention from around the world, we will strive to further expand our value in India and help promote EdTech. 2.
