Hewlett Packard (HP) and Liqvid e-learning services collaborate in a unique model to help students and entrepreneurs in rural India.

Liqvid e-learning services specialises in the area of English language training through a combination of content, technology and services offerings. Both organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to deliver Liqvid’s unique bilingual EnglishEdge software through the HP Lab-in-Box network.

HP Lab-in-Box is a self sustainable and fully operational computer lab created in a shipping container. Liqvid will be responsible for providing the relevant content, conduct train-the-trainer programmes wherever required, and extend its offering to all future HP Lab-in-Box projects.

Liqvid will also promote the cloud based HP LIFE e-learning programme across its customer base that will help students and entrepreneurs learn IT and business skills. This collaboration will increase awareness of this advanced collaboration and training programme to nearly 300,000 additional learners and provide access to HP LIFE e-learning at all of Liqvid’s study centres. Liqvid’s customers include IIT Delhi, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Educomp and British Council among others.

As part of its Vision 2020 plan, the Government is looking to increase the Gross Enrolment Ratio in schools to 30 per cent by 2020. Innovative technology solutions will play a vital role in enabling this increase in a cost-effective and sustainable manner.

“The tie-up with HP is reflective of Liqvid’s conviction that quality learning content and leading-edge technology collectively has the ability to create unique learning experiences to a diverse audience” said Vivek Aggarwal, MD and CEO,Liquid e-learning services.

 “The response to HP‘s Lab-in-Box and HP LIFE e-learning programs over the last two years has been tremendous and encouraging. The partnership with Liqvid helps us in this goal in providing flexible English language and entrepreneurship classes in rural India”, said Dr. Jaijit Bhattacharya, Director, Government Advisory, South Asia, HP.
