Online education gaining pace for easy and flexible learning in India

By NewsGram Staff Writer

With better Internet bandwidths, the distribution of education would ease out and would change traditional modes of education by providing virtual academia well within the reach of isolated students.

Remotely situated students will not be obstructed by their geographical inaccessibility. There are no restrictions on options for the academic courses and an online educational service would help provide new interactive courses wherever the student is.

WizIQ, a provider of this facility, in a recent gathering at Delhi, discussed the opportunities of online education service providers and the challenges faced by them.

“The whole purpose of creating a premier conclave in the form of EdTech, was to bring together thinkers, innovators, industry experts, educators and content providers on a common platform. We are providing ‘do-it-yourself’ platforms to online education service providers across the globe,” said Harman Singh, Founder and CEO, WizIQ.

According to Aakash Chaudhary, Director, Aakash Education, “technology can enhance the abilities of teachers and make them more accountable. He said that technology can help teachers become better teachers.”

Focusing on some limitations of the technology, Vikalp Jain from Acadgild, an online-service provider, said, “Online courses don’t solve problems for majority of people. We have to bring a human element in online courses. Along with this, the duration of the online course plays an important role in retention of the student.”

These discussions took place to deliberate upon the view that “interaction is the way-forward” for enhancing the teaching culture in India.

Online courses are cheaper and more flexible as compared to offline courses, and are thus gradually gaining ground. The feature providers online are allowing students to access courses without the aid of any teachers. Though their doubts will be cleared once they submit their queries. Several start-ups are joining in and focusing on specific subject tutorials. Students are preparing for engineering and medical exams, completely on online mode.

“We try to provide private virtual teachers to every student through data sense driven engine. Our goal is to help students learn and score higher by identifying their weaknesses which could be related to time management, while appearing for exams, overcoming careless mistakes or gaining better clarity over concepts,” said Aditi Avasthi, CEO, Embibe.

Students are expected to be vastly benefited from this flexible and easily available mode of education.
