Predictions are that by 2016 ‘knowledge hungry’ Asia will outspend Europe on E-Learning products and services, fuelled by China and India. This is a trend Sri Lanka needs to adopt in building a ‘knowledge Society’. However as a country Sri Lanka has not focused enough on developing content for computers or digital content. Despite Sri Lanka producing many intellectuals well known trainers, marriage of technology with knowledge has not happened to a satisfactory level. Guru.lk intends to bridge this gap by using the knowledge of intellectuals and converting it to digital format, commonly known as E Learning. This allows knowledge to be used any time anywhere with ease. Guru.lk has also tied with Dialog and Mobitel add to bill facility where the relevant fee can be paid via a mobile. The daily fee would vary from a Rs. 3 for a day to Rs. 10 depending on the course followed, hence making access to top trainers knowledge affordable.
