BYJU’S, the world’s most valuable EdTech company and India’s most popular school-learning app, is the only Indian company that has ranked among the world’s top 10 most downloaded education apps on Google Play store during the lockdown. The findings from the April 2020 report by Sensor Tower also make BYJU’S the only ‘school-learning’ app to feature in this global report.
The only Indian entry in the list, BYJU’S announced free access to its learning program for students since the temporary closure of schools and institutions in India in March 2020. Since then BYJU’S has seen over 6 million new students join the platform in the month of March and 7.5 million in the month of April. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to persist, online learning platforms have come to the rescue by helping students continue learning from the comfort of their homes.
Commenting on this, Mrinal Mohit, Chief Operating Officer, BYJU’S said, “We are really fortunate to be in a segment of positive relevance in times of crisis like these. We have received an overwhelming response from our students with a 3X increase in the number of new students joining our learning program. The awareness of the benefits of online learning is at an all time high among both parents and students. In fact, we accelerated the launch of several features on our app to help students continue learning from their homes. Our “LIVE classes” launched in the month of April have become extremely popular among students as they bring in the much-needed scheduled learning into a student’s life from some of BYJU’S top teachers. We will continue to keep innovating to ensure our students have an uninterrupted learning experience.”
