India’s ed-tech market that started shaping up just around a decade ago, has come a long way within a short period of time. However, in a country like ours where the contribution of the IT sector in GDP is massive, the immense growth of the ed-tech market is not surprising.
The rapid evolution of this sector has brought dynamic shifts in our education system. The front runners in India’s ed-tech space like Khan Academy, Toppscholars, Simplilearn, etc are changing the education sector while tackling the major challenges many students face today.
Key challenges faced by students in traditional education system include:
- Difficulty in finding qualified and skilled teachers in non metros and tier1 cities.
- Limitation of personalized learning
- Rote learning due to students’ disengagement from studies
How do e-learning apps address these challenges effectively?
The approach adopted by most of the e-learning apps is learner-centric. Smart learning apps like Toppscholars cover all the concepts and curriculum for K-12 students and deliver them through animated video lectures and digital notes. Their learner-focused approach has been beneficial for the students, teachers and parents alike.
In traditional classroom learning, access to quality education and personalization of learning has always been among the major issues. Because of this, many children, due to disinterest in studies, end up learning simply out of the fear of exams. However, the e-learning apps strive to ignite curiosity and interest among the students, enabling them not only to solve questions but ask them as well.
With the use of online tools, technology as well as live online interaction, the educational apps for students widen the scope and reach of information. Rather than compelling the students to remain attentive to studies, the learning apps keep them completely engaged through gamification, quizzes, and interactive tools.
Just like a YouTube video, the animated video lectures available in these learning apps evoke all learning senses of a child. Thus, instead of assimilating information from thick textbooks and by listening to classroom lectures that tend to disconnect the young children from studies, the e-learning apps facilitate an easy learning process while keeping the reading comprehension at the forefront.
Learning through digital media was earlier non-existent even long after the onset of the internet. In fact, the online medium was not viewed as a reliable learning source. However, the student learning apps like Toppscholars have helped change that. Today, they are not only perceived as digital learning apps but also ‘learning at home’ apps.
