What are the advantages of Lectera when compared to other similar edtech solutions?

Perhaps the most important advantage we have to this day remains the fast education methodology, developed by the founder of the platform, Mila Smart Semeshkina, which is the basis of all our educational products.

An international team of highly professional individuals, including very strong methodologists and IT engineers, works on their creation. In addition, we invest significant resources in the localization of educational products, as we have 3.5 million learners from 65 countries around the world. Machine translation with neural networks is improving every year but is still not good enough for those who want to learn and master professional skills in their native language. Moreover, our users have the opportunity at any time to take a test and receive optimal recommendations for their further education and development, and we see how this testing truly helps people make accurate decisions.

What makes Lectera's offering so appealing to users?

We offer a quality product to each user, they receive it and give their feedback— most often distinctly positive, as evidenced by reviews on, for example. This tells us that our continuous work on the quality of our educational products is yielding results. Our users regularly receive up-to-date information about our new products and market trends, participate in webinars, and joint partnership programs that we launch. We focus on high-quality educational products and a thoughtful methodology, continuously updating our course catalog, and working with new educational formats that meet the challenges of the times. We aim to satisfy the needs of each individual user, considering their unique requirements, and to anticipate the type of education they need for a successful future.
