Now, hone your skills via web
Staff Reporter
CHENNAI: An online e-learning portal - www.careerstrokes.com - that aims to motivate students and young professionals and provide them with career enhancement skills was launched on Monday.
A business venture of the former Indian cricket captain, Kris Srikkanth, the website has 12 modules that contain pre-loaded lectures on a variety of topics that include leadership skills, stress management, communication skills, decision-making and negotiation. "We have made the website rich in terms of graphics and visual content and all live lectures will be webcast from the studios," he said. There will be five live classes a month, including at least one by Mr. Srikkanth.
He said the teaching approach would be based on translating the concept of cricket for an easy understanding of complex management problems. "In a country like India where cricket is nothing less than a religion, citing real time analogies from the world of cricket to explain the issues of life would go a long way," he said. "What we learn in classes and what we do in real life is different," said Mr. Srikkanth.
Online learning with webinars, online discussions with experts, interviews with successful managers, theme-based learning and customised audio-visual interactions will be part of the programme, Mr. Srikkanth said. A 24-hour help line to assist people with their problems, archives to webcast the missed sessions and a help desk have also been facilitated in the site for the registered members, he added.
Mr. Srikkanth said that tie-ups with job portals and universities to cater to the problems faced by students and professionals are being looked at. "An online cricket coaching site and an online forum to teach mathematics and science will be launched soon."

"The world is not to be narrowed till it will go into the understanding . . . but the understanding is to be expanded till it can take in the world."
