OLL’s global plans
  • Daga: live learning for instructors and learners

By Lancelot Joseph. Executive Editor, Business India

“I was never keen on learning the same thing as everyone else, thus I was never good at academics in school,” explains the 15-year-old Shreyaan Daga, who now has a start-up Online Live Learning (OLL) in his name. “My dad’s offline training institute was shut down due to the pandemic and I had to stay home 24x7 like everyone else. School was either shut or virtual. I saw millions of teachers lose their jobs and was unable to share their expert knowledge or solve doubts of learners through their pre-recorded videos. This gave me an idea to build a platform, which connects a learner or a teacher from one level in their lives to the next level, a marketplace for live learning for both instructors and learners”. His mission is to connect tomorrow’s leaders with the best of today’s instructors globally.

Daga’s team has built this entirely automated system marketplace, which has 26,000 active users since April 2020, And, it has generated a revenue of Rs1.27 crore in just six months. It’s like a live marketplace, where there are trainers who teach live for any course that students are looking for throughout any age.

“Being born and raised in a stable family, I had financial support from my parents, with my dad helping me out with funding the company and building up the pillars,” Daga informs. “Now, I am looking forward to utilising the revenue we are generating to the betterment of the resources we have and to expand, as we will be seeking for investors”.

Courses for all 

Daga believes in connections – “connecting tomorrow’s leaders with the best of today’s instructors”. OLL is, as the name suggests, online-live-learning, which has a marketplace that provides courses in every category. The business model can be divided into three segments: one, being the best selling certification workshops for standard 1st to 12th; two, the OLL market, where anyone can learn anything or teach anything live online; and the third, our organisational training unit, where they train entire or segments of the organisations upon particular skills. So, OLL’s target audience includes students between ages of six and 20 years; however, anyone can come and learn anything, a marketplace is never just for one audience.

“We see ourselves competing with YouTube, Udemy and WhiteHatJr. Our USP is our belief in connection, our core values and what we stand for. Also we provide that we are a live marketplace, where you can learn and teach anything live,” says Daga, who feels that, being a marketplace, “we are the benefactor of providing the most in-demand workshops to students. Online learning has gained lots of popularity, although we find their gap in being not enough effective due to lack of connection, we happen to be someone to solve this problem, we found six workshops that were unique high in demand and got steady growth within the students of 1-12 standard, which not only focusses on coding, but also on essential fields like animation, designing & ethical hacking, which we provided for inexpensive prices”. 

OLL aspires to become the largest institute in the world, which will be a go-to for learning anything. “We plan to make teaching and learning simple and effective. We are seeking out investors and starting a campaign to promote teaching”, informs Daga, who has started to pay his own school fees.
