iUniv is a service and platform that formulates social learning by using visual and auditory content provided online by institutions such as universities and other organizations. Self-learners can enjoy these contents (video and audio) and use the Fusen (foo-sen) to study and share with their fellow users.
- Application of over 60 thousand lecture contents mainly composed by renown overseas universities
- Emphatic learning generated by the Fusen
