An e-learning portal – www.careerstrokes.com – that aims to motivate students and young professionals and provide them with career enhancement skills was launched on Monday.

A business venture of former Indian cricket captain Kris Srikkanth, the website has 12 modules that contain pre-loaded lectures on a variety of topics that include leadership skills, stress management, communication skills, decision-making and negotiation.

“We have made the website rich in terms of graphics and visual content and all live lectures will be webcast from the studios,” Mr . Srikkanth said.

He said that the teaching approach would be based on translating the concept of cricket for an easy understanding of complex management problems.

“In a country like India where cricket is nothing less than a religion, citing real time analogies from the world of cricket to explain the issues of life would go a long way,” he said.

Online learning with webinars, online discussions with experts, interviews with successful managers, theme-based learning and customised audio-visual interactions will be part of the programme, Mr. Srikkanth said.

A 24-hour helpline to assist people have also been facilitated for registered members, he added.

He said that tie-ups with job portals and universities are being looked at.

“An online cricket coaching site and an online forum to teach mathematics and science will be launched soon.”
