iBEST Institute is set to launch “Educare Skill,” the pioneering online learning platform, today, coinciding with His Majesty’s 44th Birth Anniversary.

This innovative platform features 180 read-aloud animated stories, nursery rhymes, and interactive gamified learning modules, all presented in Dzongkha and English with captivating 2D and 3D graphics.

Tharchen, CEO of Educare, said that the platform aims to provide quality Bhutanese content for children and enthusiasts of all ages.

“It serves as a supplementary tool for school learning, offering an enjoyable and engaging approach. We believe such a platform will simplify learning and make it more appealing for children,” said Tharchen.

The platform includes three animated series: “Dr. Carrot” encourages healthy eating habits; “Tales of Four Friends” imparts valuable life lessons; and “Adventures of the Monkey King” adaption of the famous tales for young audiences.

Additionally, there are 24 animated nursery rhyme episodes featuring the characters Nono and Daza, embarking on fun adventures.

“CHEY CHEY”, an interactive gamified learning segment, enables children to grasp foundational concepts like alphabets, colors, and shapes through engaging exercises in between.

Created collaboratively by approximately 100 Bhutanese professionals and youths, the platform benefited from the input of teachers and students to ensure it is both fun and educational.

Interested individuals can access select videos on the platform after its launch. Full subscription services are set to commence in March, offering various membership plans ranging from basic (Nu 299), standard (Nu 349) to premium (Nu 399) with monthly, half-yearly, and yearly options.

The platform will be accessible through the Play Store, App Store, and the Educare website, providing convenient learning opportunities for all.
