‘Self-learning models are bridging the gap’

|

Sameer Buti says that traditional classroom teaching is giving way to an eduprenuerial platform making India one of the biggest education markets in the world

Access to information — anytime and anywhere — is becoming the mantra for educational digital learning solution providers in the country. Traditional classroom teaching model has slowly metamorphosed into digital education learning platform, which is self-driven, eduprenuerial and fast making India one of the biggest education markets in the world. Students well-versed with the likes of PlayStations and iPads, via digital learning, are making classroom environment more inclusive and participatory. India’s online education market is poised to grow to a $40 billion market by end of 2015. With a robust Internet ecosystem, number of schools and teachers are embracing the self-learning teaching models serving as a significant bridge between students and teachers. 
Today, teachers are not just giving lectures; they are facilitating an e-learning culture via embracing newage digital media technologies serving the education industry. The scope of instant interactivity given that students are mobility-driven and want information fast at the press of the button is generating demand of tablets and offline pen drives, which serves meticulously as a repository of online course (chapter-wise), for entrepreneurs to come up with their brainchild of learning systems to best serve the effervescent and fast-growing education industry.
 
With a vision to make education more contextualised, relevant, edgy, and agile, there are quite a few companies that have carved their business imperatives on one common theme: To make education spreadable, reachable, offline and online, affordable, and relevant for today’s quick-witted students. The  digital platforms, by a huge margin, strategically deal with the less innovative pedagogy styles and lack of teachers for specialised subjects — giving students the best e-learning experience and seeding an element of independency in their learning style.
 
To cater to this demanding and immensely high potential market, Classteacher Learning Systems has been a pioneer in changing the dynamics of Indian education for the past 15 years. With its innovative suite of e-learning platforms, more than 1,500 schools, two million students, and over 25,000 educators across the globe have immensely benefitted from its educational products — classroom solutions, self-learning, and home solutions. Via its latest innovation, ClassKonnect, a revolutionary classroom management system allows the teachers to connect with their students in a tablet classroom whilst humanising technology, seamlessly. Alongside a promising user experience, this learning system offers training programmes to the schools to stay abreast with the latest technology in the industry.
 
On a more social front, the digital alternatives like Integrated Digital Interactive Classroom, Content Management System and Classpad can bring an element of reliability in students — making them more competitive in their respective courses. With the Prime Minister’s Office going digital and mobile friendly, India is embracing technological advancements especially how information is communicated. Against this backdrop, there is a huge potential for educators in India to leverage the missing link between teachers and their students.
