RALEIGH, North Carolina, September 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Mashable has recently listed WizIQ as one of the most dependable online tutoring destination in a feature story published on August 20, 2013. With a user base of more than 3 million learners and 250,000 teachers, they called WizIQ a 'leader in the online education space.'

WizIQ has a largest collection of paid courses created by educators on the Internet and hosts more than 2300 live classes daily in the WizIQ Virtual Classroom.

Earlier this year WizIQ closed a Series B investment.

In this report, Mashable rounded up nine dependable online tutoring sites, which are offering students some extra help outside of class. The other platforms listed were InstaEDU, Kaplan Kids, LivePerson, Sophia, e-Tutor,, Growing Stars and eAge.

Unlike other online education platforms, WizIQ believes in teacher driven online education as opposed to just content driven online education.

Harman Singh, the CEO of WizIQ, in his comment says, "WizIQ has a distinctive style. We believe that the teacher, like in a classroom setting, should be at the center of online education. Getting students through to the process of learning should still be the teacher's responsibility. WizIQ is on a mission to help teachers use technology to teach online and further help their students to achieve their learning goals. Once everyone sees this picture like we do, millions of students can truly benefit from online education."

Colleges using WizIQ include Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) in India, Atlantic University in Virginia Beach and Des Moines Area Community Colleges in Iowa, Macmillan Publishers Limited in US, Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Canada, Universidad De Puerto Rico and K-12 Westmoreland Intermediate Unit #7 in Philadelphia. Other WizIQ customers include tutoring companies, and educators in the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) space.

Teachers can use WizIQ to teach courses, flip their classroom, hold virtual office hours, or collaborate with students online for regular discussions and homework help. Students can enroll for programming and exam prep courses, or enroll directly with a tutor for live, online sessions.

WizIQ also provides Apps for iPads and Android devices for students to attend online classes, giving them anytime, anywhere access to the WizIQ Virtual Classroom. WizIQ Virtual Classroom can also be integrated with learning management systems like Moodle and Blackboard or own website through WizIQ APIs.
