In recent years, the integration of digital technologies has been exclusive only to the nation’s entertainment and ICT sectors.
The education sector, however, remains impervious to digitalization owing to a 27% national IT literacy rate.
The inaccessibility of web-based information, particularly in avenues for post-secondary education, has led to an indecisive tech-savvy generation which prompted Comparison Private Limited to unveil Sri Lanka’s first education resource comparison platform, YouCompare.lk (YC) on Tuesday.
YC is an all-in-one tool designed for today’s prospective student; an individual who seeks more from technology, the classroom and the campus. The platform is free and accessible to all.
It provides an immeasurable array of information. And users can filter institutions or course profiles using built-in indicators such as desired career paths, interests, and affordability.
The platform also offers unbiased student counseling, career guidance sessions, articles, and audiovisual resources in English, Sinhala, and Tamil.
YC has also been designed to cater to educational institutions seeking free registration.
Education Institute Portals (EIPs) are built into the platform.
