New Delhi: Worldfloat, India's homegrown social networking site with nearly 45 million users, has introduced free video tutorials for schools and university students.

"We have introduced a new feature. We are now offering over 5,000 video courses and tutorials for schools as well as higher education," Worldfloat founder Pushkar Mahatta said.

He said initially the focus is on the courses related to computer science, and that other areas like accounting and law, would gradually be covered.

"This is the first such initiative in India. Nobody else offers such a wide range of video tutorials, and that too free of charge," he said.

Through the tutorials, students can now learn basics of computers as well as advanced languages like Java and PHP.

"Normally these computer languages are very expensive to learn from institutes like NIIT. Some of these courses can cost up to Rs.1 lakh a year. Worldfloat is offering these video tutorials for free," he said.
