Lecturio's platform and learning content complement the learning needs of every medical student and combines modules from some of the best faculty around the world. This allows the institutions to make assignments matching their curricula and learning paths. Medvarsity's established leadership in medical in the region and access to a large pool of healthcare focused educational institutions can help drive considerable traction in the region.

Talking about the partnership, Mr. Gerald Jaideep, CEO, Medvarsity Online Ltd. said, "The Medical Council of India had mandated all medical to leverage at least 30% digital learning methodologies. Partnering with Lecturio allows us to introduce an exceptionally innovative platform, combined with extensive content across pre-clinical, para-clinical and clinical subjects that can supplement the existing teaching tools used by colleges in India."

To come across as credible and reliable professionals, the doctors need to remember numerous medical facts. Therefore, Lecturio's learning methodology ensures the use of increasing time intervals between subsequent reviews (spaced repetition) of previously learned material in order to achieve long term memorization.

This tie up is done keeping in mind the growing needs of the digital learning and critical healthcare trends & requirements. Digital learning is the new age learning methodology that enables students to grasp concepts quickly, which in turn connects theoretical and practical learning more easily. This also engages in learning more readily, along with enhancing the instructional techniques, leveraging instructor time, and ensuring widespread sharing of knowledge. Digital technologies therefore, permit this through new and better ways, which helps create possibilities beyond the limits of one's imagination.

Commenting on the partnership, Stefan Wisbauer, CEO, Lecturio Gmbh said, "We are pleased to be working with such an established player in the Indian market where student predisposition to mobile and online learning as well as the needs of institutions to stay connected to their student's learning provide fertile ground. Faculty will gain great efficiency in their teaching to help them juggle the mix of teaching, care delivery, research and administration many of them have to handle."

Medvarsity currently offers online courses for a range of healthcare related subjects, which are designed for medical professionals who are looking to enhance their knowledge and expertise in a chosen field. By partnering with Lecturio, Medvarsity hopes to bring the e-learning content and platform by offering it to MBBS students in India.
