Byju’s, India’s largest e-learning platform, and US-based conglomerate The Walt Disney Co are planning to launch a co-branded learning app, named Early Learn. This app will be targeting students from kindergarten to third grade.
A standalone app will feature characters from Disney brands such as Toy Story, Cars and Frozen among others for a blended learning experience. It will further be engaging younger children with the video-based tutorial.
The partnership with Disney is in line with Byju’s aspirations for expanding beyond India into other large English-speaking markets like the US, UK and Australia.
Since October 2018, Byju’s was reportedly in talks with Disney to create educational content for primary schools.
