Wandida is a platform made ​​for learners who have a time constraint and are seeking a specific explanation, closer to tutoring than to a formal lecture.

The content consists of short lessons (usually 5-6 minutes), combining academic rigor and web-driven brevity, each lesson is made, as much as possible,  self-contained. This is reflected by the retention rate of about 50% for our videos, despite the increase in audience since the launch.

The platform is also hosting presentations of research publications by their authors under the topic research. The only condition to be featured is that the presentation should be based on a published work or a given talk in a conference and that the speaker is one of the co-authors.

The site was created in 2012 by  El Mahdi EL MHAMDI then took its actual dimension in march 2013 thanks to an initiative from Professor Rachid GUERRAOUI with the support of Google and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL).
