Introducing the Varsity mobile app

Traders and Investors,

Education and sharing knowledge has always been at the forefront of everything we do at Zerodha. Over the years, we have done this relentlessly via various channels and formats – Varsity, Webinars, TradingQnA, Z-Connect itself, and through partner platforms such as LearnApp.

We are now pushing ourselves to take this effort to a whole new level.

After 14 months of painstaking efforts, we are finally happy to announce the launch of ‘Varsity Mobile App’. Zerodha Varsity, as you may know, is our flagship educational initiative, which provides you with highly structured and detailed notes about literally everything you need to know about trading and investing. This is available online and is free to access for all. We now have a mobile avatar of Zerodha Varsity, which retains the goodness of the rich content of the Varsity web version plus introduces several features which enhances your learning experience.

We are launching the Varsity app with two modules – ‘Introduction to stock markets’ and ‘Technical Analysis’, but over time we will add all the other modules as well. Here is a list of features that we think are really cool –

Content

Click on a module that you like to start reading. The content is broken down into three levels of difficulty namely, Beginner, Intermediate, and Advance.

Choose a difficulty level to start learning. Each difficulty level has several chapters with bite-size cards for the ease of learning.

All the content is neatly organized to ensure continuity in learning.

Goals and Streaks

Set up daily goals to not just accelerate your learning but also stay consistent at it.

Streaks help you figure out the consecutive number of days you’ve managed to hit your daily goals. Your objective should be to maximize your streaks.

Quiz

This is an interesting feature. Test your learning at the end of every level by taking up the quiz. Since every module has three levels of difficulty, there will be three quizzes.

Make sure to give your best attempt at the very first shot. Subsequent quiz attempts will reduce the points scored per question, so it is in your best interest to give your best shot at your first attempt.

Certification

Unlock the certification at the end of every module. However, Varsity Certification won’t come easily to you. You need to score a minimum of 60% in each of the three quizzes plus 60% on the certification exam itself.

Besides, the certification quiz is timed and it is in your advantage to finish the certification quiz in one go. Good luck! 🙂

The Wall

This is a unique feature and we are quite proud of this. The Wall is a place where industry experts (on invite basis) share their views and opinions on events panning out in the markets. Or it could simply be their opinion on an article. The idea here is to link their view to related concepts and transform your learning experience.

Make sure you regularly check for updates on the Wall. Who knows – you may find your next trade or investment idea! 🙂

Themes

Don’t like reading in all white? Switch to dark or sepia mode.

Switch to a theme you like. You can play around with the font size too.

And there are plenty of other features, which we are sure you’d appreciate. For now, the app is available only on the Google play store, but we are working on the iOS version as well. The iOS version should be available over the next 2-3 months.

Download the app on Google Play store, please share your reviews,. Don’t forget to rate the app, hopefully with 5 stars! 🙂

Happy learning!

Karthik Rangappa

I'm of the belief that trading and investing is not a gift that you are born with but rather a skill that you can develop over time with practise and constant learning. At Zerodha, I'm focused on helping not just our clients but the community at large to understand the capital markets better and help them make better choices in the market.

    Karthik & Team,

    You folks rock! – seriously. The passion and zeal with which you have built the community over years – giving baby hand holding lessons to providing computational excel sheets for people to use… trust me – your legacy is now bigger than you all can fathom. I am a living example of how I have benefitted immensely from the forums, the old message boards, meticulously drafted chapters on topics people were not sure where to look for…

    I am firmly of the belief that – you die the day you stop learning – this app will empower a lot of others to seek, to understand , and more importantly to test the waters (hopefully without meeting a shark)

    I can go on… but Kudos to you for the passion with purpose.

    Do what is necessary… Do what is possible – and Soon… You will do the Impossible.

    Cheers!
