Courseplay can help you bring down the cost of training and multiply your training capacity with a few clicks of a button. Detailed reports will provide useful insights about your organization.
Courseplay is more than simply an ed tech or e-learning solution for organizations. If you have a small, medium or large company or organization, Courseplay can help you bring down the cost of training and multiply your training capacity with a few clicks of a button. Detailed reports will provide useful insights about your organization. Courseplay is the property of Firstventure Corporation Private Limited, an up-and-coming privately-funded education-technology company.
Arjun Gupta graduated in 2011 with a Bachelors Degree in International Relations and Economics from Boston University. After returning home he saw a huge potential in the Indian workforce, but a critical shortage of affordable and scalable training programs.
Since 2011, Arjun has been focusing on cutting-edge concepts like flipped learning, gamification, education technology (edtech), lean entrepreneurship, design thinking, the customer development process and the business model canvas to understand the fabric of business, education and entrepreneurship in today’s day and age.
He handles the day-to-day business and decision-making at Firstventure Corporation, and is currently working on developing Courseplay, an e-learning solution for educators, companies and individuals.

Our four main pillars are Engagement, Impact Measurement, Accessibility, and Scalability
Management: When it comes to learning online it is very important that learners feel engaged so that they keep coming back. In this day and age, keeping the user’s attention is the hardest thing to do, and the challenge is compounded when it’s for something the user is required to do. By using game-like elements, for example, leaderboards, trophies, rewards, and also interactive elements like quizzes, surveys, voting, discussions and announcements, we want users to feel like they are making a contribution to their organization and getting rewarded for it.
Impact Measurement: A big challenge with any sort of learning is to measure the success of the training program and calculate the real-world impact. Courseplay allows you to understand the ROI of any training program over the workforce and also understand how it affects the bottom line of the company or organization over time. This is one of the many things that we are trying to do differently from the other players in the industry.
Accessibility: We’re living in an age where most content is consumed over mobile devices from any location, be it the commute home, the office desk or from home. A robust training solution must allow for this kind of access to make it as easy as possible for users to learn. Courseplay can be accessed from any device, any browser, and any location to allow for exactly this level of flexibility.
Scalability: This fourth but equally important pillar dictates that the size of the client should not be a factor. By this I mean that our cloud infrastructure scales seamlessly during heavy load and scales down during periods of low load, allowing us to minimize our server costs and pass the savings on to our clients. This is something that has to be planned and designed from day 1 as it affects the architecture of not just the software but also the infrastructure and business model as a whole, and for this reason, not a lot of other players in the market have this ability.
I wanted to make an impact where skill development and learning was so scalable that it could be affordable everywhere in India. That’s how Courseplay was born. These principles were designed with the Indian workforce in mind, but they apply to learners all over the world.
One challenge we have been consistently facing since we started operations is in changing the mindset that our platform takes away jobs from instructors and trainers. They think that all the training will happen online and they will become redundant, and because of this there is sometimes a feeling of resistance when we meet clients. The challenge has been in letting these people know that we’re not taking away their jobs but rather transforming it to be more focused on training and innovation.
We made it very clear that our platform works really well with the ‘blended learning’ approach, where some of the training is conducted online and a lot of the problem solving happens in face-to-face interactions. In addition we showcased case studies where the training team shifted focus from administrative activities to creating engaging content which was to be delivered both online and offline. All of the clients we have worked with have actually increased the size of their training team after signing up with us. We get much better responses now.
Well, our mission is to "democratize education using lean technology" which is a fancy way of saying we want to change the way people learn by making it a cheaper, faster and more accessible process.
Grow the business in terms of industry and geography. We’re working on some exciting features and very innovative technology and I’d like to see our clients delighted by what we come up with.
