Focus EduSolutions is a strategic venture of Focus EduVation, Inc., which is a part of the US $20 Billion online education market. Over the past decade, and after having built over 95,000 hours of online content, Focus EduVation continues to harness emerging designing tools along with a team of superior content creators to enable a new era of teaching and learning.
