About NuVeda...

Electronic learning or E-learning is a general term used to refer to computer-enhanced learning. It is commonly associated with the field of advanced learning technology (ALT), which deals with both the technologies and associated methodologies in learning using networked and/or multimedia technologies. The worldwide e-learning industry is estimated to be worth over 38 billion euros according to conservative estimates, although in the European Union only about 20% of e-learning products are produced within the common market


NuVeda’s e-learning services are positioned to provide the best e-learning experience in the industry. Using a unique methodology called “FLFLCL”, transform some of the most mundane content into rich, interactive learning experiences.

FLFLCL stands for “Facilitator Led Fun Learning for Continuous Learning”. FLFLCL stems from a fundamental philosophy at NuVeda that learning must be fun and interesting to be effective. Where there’s fun, there is interest. Where there is interest, there is learning. NuVeda believe that people learn best when there is a facilitator guiding them along their learning journey. NuVeda’s e-learning modules try to recreate the classroom experience as much as possible with fun learning elements generously sprinkled throughout the modules. NuVeda’s facilitators have honed FLFLCL over 2 decades of classroom facilitation and instruction for effectiveness.

NuVeda’s learning methodology uses a combination of audio, visual and kind of esthetic elements to adapt to a wide range of learning types. The Learning environment includes elements such as quizzes, discovery, music, crosswords, simulations, word games and more. The result is a rich learning experience that stays with the learner.
