Using IBM SoftLayer cloud, Extramarks aims to significantly improve the delivery of media rich, critical educational content to thousands of K-12 students across 250 locations in India,” IBM said in a statement.

In a three-year engagement, Extramarks has chosen IBM SoftLayer cloud for its Extramarks Live, an e-tutorial platform that offers a wide range of content for different national and state level curricula, it added.

The programme currently has 700,000 students enrolled and enables users to connect with the learning material at their own convenience. The material is customised to facilitate learning as per a student’s capability.
