One of the most emerging businesses worldwide during Covid-19 times is e-learning. Historically, learning has always been boring and outdated, and given the long-distance, it proved to waste the valuable time of learners.
In order to leverage this opportunity, Perculus have built e-learning from the ground up, using Ant Media Server. Perculus, the spinoff from Advancity, aims to remedy this issue, by improving e-learning and set out to change the way that employers learn by doing in live environments and practicing their soft skills.
Perculus: designed for trainers, refined with users
Advancity’s 20+ years of experience has enabled them to prioritize learning management systems (LMS) and virtual classrooms, helping universities and educational institutions. Having 2 remote offices also a hybrid working methodology, Advancity has become a leader in training solutions for the educational sector, and Perculus was built on this experience to move online training one step ahead of video conferencing.
