Codemi brings online learning to Indonesia


Online learning has grown exponentially over the past few years, with western organizations like Codeacademy and ranking among some of the better known providers of skill-development classes.

Codemi, or Collaboration Academy Indonesia, is a website that aims to bring online education to Indonesians through video, audio and presentations. It started when the three co-founders were irked by obstacles and barriers to attending seminars that were scattered across continents, and wanted an easier way to acquire new skill sets.

Codemi currently offers a just a few business related courses. The team hopes to keep its focus narrow for the time being, stating that it will venture into other subject categories in the second quarter of 2014. At the moment the service is available for free and according to CEO and co-founder Zaki Falimbany, monetization is not the team’s current priority. They are, however, looking for investors.

This concept is not new in Indonesia, similar sites exist such as Medidu and Wikasa but Codemi hopes to set itself apart from the competition through exclusive content and partnerships.
