Unacademy has announced the launch of ‘Legends on Unacademy’, an initiative that brings legends from different industries to teach life lessons through ‘Live Classes’ on the platform. The programme begins this month with the first edition featuring legendary cricketers Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Bret Lee, Jonty Rhodes and Muttiah Muralidharan, through the association with Unacademy Road Safety World Series.

Each class will be 30-45 minutes long and will bring out a lesser-known aspect of the legends’ lives and career. The cricketers will share life lessons and experiences with students on topics such as mental fitness, working under pressure, leading the attack and passion, to motivate them to move closer to their dreams. Through this initiative, the learners will receive once-in-a-lifetime chance to get their questions answered by these legends during the Live Classes. Unacademy aims at providing quality and affordable education to all, and support them in their journey towards achieving their academic goals. 

Commenting on the initiative, Karan Shroff, Vice-President, Marketing at Unacademy, said, “Learners are at the heart of what we do at Unacademy, and with Legends of Unacademy, we are fulfilling our promise of helping them crack it, in ways more than one. Be it the enriching Live Classes that these stalwarts take or the questions they answer, this initiative will help learners prepare better, with the help of the ones who have walked the talk. They get a once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with legends we all look up to and learn about the struggles, experiences and failures behind their success. In a country that almost breathes the sport we are truly excited to kick off this visionary initiative with these illustrious cricketers. This is the first edition of Legends on Unacademy, with the future bringing more such luminaries to teach live on the platform, motivating Learners and propelling them towards achieving their dreams.”
