At the soft launch in spring 2021, the Swiss startup Schlaufux presented various explanatory videos, summaries and exercises for all math, German and French topics relevant to the curriculum. Now, the e-learning platform has expanded its offering with some new features: on the platform, you can track your learning progress through statistics, win points while learning and consult the "Help-Fux" in case of ambiguities. The "Help-Fox" provides tips and tricks and helps students find the right solution.
The learning platform has adapted its entire learning material to Curriculum 21 and is suitable for all students in 3rd grade and above. It functions as a digital supplement to compulsory school lessons.
Greater equality of opportunity in the education sector
What is new about the learning platform is that students in the 3rd and 4th primary grades can already access it. For them, access to the platform is free of charge: Interested parents and curious children can simply register on the website via email and thereby gain access to all those explanatory videos, summaries and exercises that are tailored to the math, German and French lessons of their primary level.
In this way, the company's founders want to ensure greater equality of opportunity in the education sector. Christian Marty, CEO of Schlaufux, emphasizes that it is important to have a reasonably priced offer in the tutoring market: "Otherwise, only wealthy families can afford tutoring." A subscription to Schlaufux costs nothing at all for the little ones, and 49 francs per month for students in 5th grade and above. "So one month of Schlaufux," Marty says, "costs about the same as one hour of tutoring."
The e-learning platform draws attention to its offering in various ways. In addition to online advertising, the offer can also be seen on public transport or on mobile posters on bicycles, which are placed in six different cities at locations where students and their parents spend time.
