Last year, Benchprep expanded from test prep to offering digital courses that also cover various high school and college subjects. This week, the company added even more materials, in the form of over 2,000 video courses.

“We believe video is a critical mode of delivering instructions/information for two reasons: Students retain more information when they see/listen to the concepts than just read them [and] it is easier to consume on mobile devices,” says Ashish Rangnekar, Benchprep CEO and co-founder. Plus, the video content supplements the other digital learning materials Benchprep offers.

Rangnekar says the courses are aimed at high school and college students, and that some cover math and science while others provide software training for programs such as Excel, Word and Access.

The content comes from publisher partners such as NROC and Compuworks as well as independent educators like PatrickKMT and IntegralCalc. The more than 400 hours of video content are available to students for about $150 apiece, or as part of the $30 per month subscription fee.

“These courses are available on all devices including web, iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle,” Rangnekar says. “Students can personalize the entire course content and study anytime, anywhere at their own pace.”
