Your take on the level of e-Content adoption by Indian schools.
Schools are adopting the e-content education system in a big way and most of the schools in urban areas are going for e-learning solutions.
Kind of solution you provide to schools.
We at Educosoft provide online teaching and learning solutions for schools. We provide them turn-key solutions, including setting up infrastructure for implementing our portal. During the time when the programme is being used in the schools we provide back up and support, this includes replacing and repairing of what is under warranty as per the dealer provided terms. We charge only the cost of the item to be replaced or repaired.
Largest adopters of e-content solutions.
Different state governments are adopting e-content solutions. The government aided schools are largest adopters as they have adequate funds to do that. Private schools have to raise such funds from their students or pay it from their own pockets.
Minimum investment needed to be made for setting up an e-content solution in school.
Cost of infrastructure would be around Rs 80,000 per class. The cost would go up for more innovative products. Apart from this, the cost for accessing the content per child works out to be Rs.100 per student per month. Peak season is November to March when schools check out the various options available in the market.
