The site, among other things, hosts communities to help students prepare for SAT and GMAT exams and will now include thousands of original practice questions. The question banks grow daily as members and staff add new questions. Over 1500 members are already using this innovative social interface to practice for exams, which includes tools to allow members to time themselves, debate solutions and strategy with each other, and to track their improvement over time.
"As one of the only alternatives to expensive books and courses, LearnHub’s free SAT and GMAT communities are catching on quickly, averaging 50 new members every day since their launch," said chief executive officer (CEO) Malgosia Green, Savicca Inc, founder and CEO.
With the launch and rapid growth of the SAT and GMAT communities, many top higher education institutions in America and Canada are turning to LearnHub for access to international student candidates. LearnHub is building on this success by fostering a similar community for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and International English Language Testing System (IELTS) English proficiency tests and other similar topics.
In addition to helping with these standardised tests, these communities are also a hub of activity for domestic and international students to connect with academic recruiters. "There is nothing else like SAT. LearnHub.com, especially for Indian and international students who want to prepare to study in America," stated Koustabh Dolui, a SAT community member from Kolkata, "It’s where you find opportunities to study abroad."
LearnHub.com is an online social learning network. It is a free resource for teachers and students that include communities on hundreds of topics, and dozens of pedagogically-sound educational features. LearnHub.com is run by Savvica Inc, a Canadian company. Educomp Solutiona Ltd, India’s largest education company has acquired a majority stake in Savvica Inc last September.
