Co-Founder at TrisLabs

Jan 2017 - Present

TrisLabs is the first collaborative online learning platform that incorporates on the go Virtual labs along with the theoretical concepts required for learning. TrisLabs is an unparalleled project. We are in midst of creating not only a powerful, shareable virtualized lab environment, but also a platform that will change the current approach to higher education. We are making learning more effective and practical. Our story is about making higher education a fascinating process – Transformation from burning a costly Electronic hardware to simulating over the internet, from environment dependent system to platform agnostic simulating environment. We hear complaints that the modern higher education system doesn’t keep up with the practical aspects of learning. We strive to eliminate this gap by providing different solutions catering to needs of Students, Teachers, Universities and Industry Professionals. Currently we provide on the go Virtual labs to Students free of cost where students can come play, practice and share their work with their peers, teachers. Educators, instructors and corporate trainers have an opportunity to expand their technology tools by using our virtual labs. Not only this they can use our course management system where they can use their existing resources to plug into our system. And also, they can test their students using our virtual labs. Universities can save their money by investing in our virtual labs rather than purchasing costly hardware, which comes with a risk of burning out. Various Scholars, Industry professionals can collaborate and share their work through our platform. Our platform at TrisLabs offers a rare fusion of capabilities in the fields of educational technology by transforming pedagogy. “At TrisLabs, our mission is to simplify learning by incorporating advanced technology and creating a collaborative community.”
