LearningShade is an online platform to learn advanced English, syllabus courses, computer knowledge, analytical skills and leadership skills from top-notch corporate trainers. It is pretty evident that people from tier 2 & tier 3 cities have a tough time getting the job. It happens primarily because these either have studied in Hindi medium or have very minimal English touch in their schools and colleges. We have done some research and survey to understand it better and come up with the concept of providing them world-class education online.
We have a program of online classes, live classes and intelligent classes. We would expect people to take the benefit of the superior quality education. We also have a program where the teachers, tutors, and educators can groom themselves and make good opportunities for additional income through knowledge enhancement. We have a plan to venture out with the colleges and schools and get them online education facilities. We will also have a few professional certifications, indulge in a digital world, and focus more on smart Class. We have people who have excellent knowledge in corporate, training, education, and learning & development. We understand the requirements and their challenges, and we strive to provide excellent quality education and help them fulfil their dreams.
For strengthening digital education in India, the government eased regulations on online education and finally allowed universities and colleges to extend >20% of a degree online from 2020 onwards. This initiative has enabled Indian institutes to improve their higher education portfolio further internationally.
Many EdTech businesses (e.g., upGrad, Virohan, BYJU’s, etc.) have also gained traction recently. They are determined to deliver unparalleled learning management resources, such as blended learning, 3D and DIY kits, and AI-based innovative and engaging learning. According to a report published by RedSeer and Omidyar Network India, the EdTech market in India is expected to reach ~ US$ 3.5 billion by 2022 due to the higher uptake of EdTech offerings among students.
Further, increasing digital education in India is also helping the government to improve accessibility in rural areas and impart quality education to students in small towns and villages. Further, this also provides private players with an opportunity to venture into the Indian digital education sector. For example, in January 2021, Esper collaborated with ‘Teach for India’ and ‘ITeach Schools’ to assist in e-learning programmes for rural kids.
The rising adoption of digital education in India also attracts global key players to offer online courses to students and extend opportunities to learn new skills. For example, in January 2021, Amazon India launched ‘Amazon Academy’, an online platform enabling engineering aspirants to prepare for competitive examinations such as the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). Further, Amazon India launched Machine Learning Summer School in June 2021 to help Indian students learn new skills.
The Future of Digital Education…
In the future, the government will focus on getting students industry-ready by evaluating their competencies and helping them get aligned with industry-based skills. The government is promoting Indian institutes and colleges to shift from traditional operations to digital modes to achieve this. In line with this, several educational establishments such as Amity University, Christ University, AIMA (All India Management Association), IIMs (Indian Institute of Management), Ashoka University and ISB (Indian School of Business) have now transferred their examination procedures online.
The government is also focusing on research and innovation to identify sectors that can further support and strengthen digital education initiatives in India. In July 2021, the government stated that space technology (such as satellite communication) is being used for digital education in India. At present, under the Tele-education Programme, 19 states and A&N Islands have been leveraging satellite communication for beaming educational content in digital form. Indian institutes such as Bhaskaracharya National Institute for Space Applications and Geo-informatics (BISAG-N) leverage satellite communication for beaming 51 educational channels. Institutes such as the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing is also leveraging digital platforms to train beneficiaries (such as working professionals, UGs/PGs, doctorate students, academicians, school students and school teachers) on space technology and its applications. In 2020-21, these programmes have benefitted ~ 2.42 lakh members. These initiatives are expected to open the door to more space-based applications and digital education opportunities.
