Plantoost is a digital education platform which is emerging as one of the world’s fastest-growing EdTech startup. It has a growing number of online students and instructors, with courses ranging from business analytics, psychology, raspberry pi, web development to arts and crafts.
Founded in 2015, Plantoost initially started as a school for plant sciences. But a couple years later, the company pivoted to becoming an online marketplace of courses, where anyone can learn and teach a variety of different subjects.
There are many free and paid courses available on Plantoost with access to members-only forums. Their vast number of courses are helping people learn a number of unique skills at affordable prices. One example is a course that teaches anyone how to build a blue apron clone and that course is only available on their platform.
Instructors on Plantoost include everyone from globally acclaimed experts in fields like coding to self-help gurus well- versed in topics like memory improvement and psychology.
Plantoost is a strong competitor in the EdTech space. It looks poised to contend with the likes of Udemy, Masterclass as well as others. It is a platform that has successfully made connecting students with teachers a breeze on its online education platform.
Currently, the platform is offering two services, one for teachers and another for learners.
For anyone with a skill, Plantoost provides teachers or educators tools to create online courses composed of video lessons, organized by sections and class projects. For the teachers who are aspiring to create a smaller sized offering, Plantoost also provides them a workshop option.
As for anyone willing to learn, Plantoost’s motto of implementing “educational seeds to plant and boost knowledge” may sound a little cheesy. It starts along the lines of each student getting a start by learning foundations of a subject matter and having fun during the knowledge boost process.
That said, Plantoost faces steep competition from other online education platforms like Udemy and Masterclass that target makers, artists, self-help gurus and the startup and tech community.
