At the soft launch in spring 2021, the Swiss startup Schlaufux presented various explanatory videos, summaries and exercises for all curriculum-relevant math, German and French topics. 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. This is available with tips and tricks and helps the students to find the right solution.
The learning platform has adapted all of its learning material to Curriculum 21 and is suitable for all pupils from Year 3. 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 pupils in the 3rd and 4th primary classes 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 founders of the company want to ensure greater equality of opportunity in the education sector. Christian Marty, CEO of Schlaufux, stresses that it is important for the tutoring market to offer affordable services: "Otherwise, only wealthy families will be able to 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. "A month of Schlaufux," says Marty, "costs about the same as an hour of tutoring."
The e-learning platform draws attention to its offer 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 in places where students and their parents spend time.
