One of the world’s leading media and entertainment companies, Toonz Media Group has launched a new e-learning platform named Ri8brain in order to expand its Education Services Division. The platform is exclusively focused on creative learning.
“Ri8brain will mark our foray into e-learning. The unique aspect of this platform is that it is dedicated to learning creative arts and technology. We live in an era where conventional jobs are fast being taken over by bots. And the future belongs to techno-creative people, who can smartly use technology and creativity to come up with new products, services, and solutions. Ri8brain envisages to promote creative intelligence and empower creative minds,” said P. Jayakumar, CEO – Toonz Media Group.
The education division will be carrying on the legacy of Toonz Academy, which has been a leader in animation, VFX, and related visual arts training for almost twenty years.

Ri8brain Explore courses will focus on honing and discovering children’s and young learners’ creative talents. The learning categories include Arts & Crafts, Music, Life Skills, Storytelling, etc. Whereas Ri8brain Excel courses are focused on grooming professionals for the techno-creative, media, and entertainment industries.

Imparting quality education & training through industry-endorsed curriculum and innovative training methodologies will be the hallmark of Ri8brain. This initiative is also unique in that it offers employment opportunities to mentors and creative arts teachers to use their skills to train the next generation of creative talent,” Mr. Jayakumar said.
