Infosys, India’s second largest IT firm, has launched a learning app called InfyTQ for engineering students of the country, so as to develop skills of students and help them be ready to face the employment scene.
The platform developed by Infosys, InfyTQ, focuses on aiding technical education and development of soft skills of engineering students. The courses offered by the platform have the objective of making students ready for practical challenges of the industry in the scene of employment. They are supposed to be good enough for conceptual and practical technological awareness and comprehension.
Among the millions of engineering students who graduate every year, only 6% get employment, the reasons behind this lack of employment being substandard education and antiquated teaching techniques that result in limited usable skills.
To counter this, InfyTQ has decided to offer free courses for third and fourth year engineering students at the moment, through an Android app as well as in a desktop version, through online assessments and certification.
In the near future, the platform hopes to expand its scope and “offer advance learning materials and enable virtual programming environments,” as per the official statement.
InfyTQ moreover includes a social feed which can be accessed by learners who wish to have knowledge of the latest innovations and various Infosys-related events. Other features include sharing technical expertise, improving communication, etiquettes and even interpersonal relations.
InfyTQ was launched on February 16 and has already amassed 10,000+ downloads in just two days.
Unfortunately, users have complained about the app containing bugs and having an incomplete interface. While some complain about difficulties faced while creating new accounts, others criticize the overall experience of the app as well as of the mobile webpage. The app seems to be shockingly slow and sporadically unresponsive with unreliable login API.
Being developed by a multi-national IT company, this kind of an erroneous app seems to disappoint users, and they hope that the company would take some time to resolve the faults so that the app provides better service to students.
