“The school fraternity is not averse of adopting e-content”, affirms Ninad Vengurleka, Sr. VP & Head-Content Curriculum Group of IL & FS Education and Technology Services Ltd

Your take on the level of e-Content adoption by Indian schools.

Indian urban schools are frequently using e-content based education. Semi urban and rural schools are recently gearing up to this concept. At IETS, we believe close to 25 per cent of schools are actively using e-content. We also believe no school is averse to use e-content based learning systems. The reason for non-use could be either because they cannot afford the high costs or may not be happy with the quality of content available.

Kind of solution you provide to schools.

Our solution is called the K-Class Program. It is a combination of technology, academic interventions and content to enhance teacher and student performance. K-Class stands for Knowledge Class. K-Class is an interactive learning solution for schools. It makes a school teach, learn, understand and perform better through an ingenious combination of technology and curriculum mapped content.

Challenges faced in convincing school management about the benefits of e-content.

Benefits of e-content based learning are already known to schools. The challenges are in convincing the schools to differentiate between good and bad quality content in terms of learning experience. Many schools tend to focus more on jazzy technology features of the hardware and overall pricing and curriculum mapped content. As a result many a times, learning quality may take a backseat.

Your best selling e-Content solution for schools; kind of innovations for future use.

The K-Class Content Bank is a wonderful mix of over 10,000 digital content units stored inside the K-Yan. These include, curriculum mapped multimedia lessons in Science, Math, Social Sciences and English, as well as assessments, mind maps, practice sheets, science experiment videos and interactive exploriments in science and math. In addition to this off-the-rack content, K-Class also provides a bank of teacher resources that can be used by the teacher to make her own lessons and lesson plans.
