Pearson Education Services mapped multimedia-based interactive content for schools. Meena Ganesh, CEO and MD of the company shares her insights with Sharmila Das.

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

The Indian school market has been very receptive to e content learning and has seen many positive changes towards a more progressive system of education. Surveys and reports have suggested that 65 per cent of teachers and school administers believe that printed textbooks will completely be replaced by interactive and e learning tools. The last decade has seen parents and teachers showing a keen interest in this new technology and I believe that this trend will show rapid expansion with many more schools adopting this solution.

Kind of solution you provide to schools.

We equip the schools with DigiClass; an ICT-based solution that combines state-of- the-art hardware with syllabus linked multimedia-based interactive content. DigiClass is a complete classroom solution that comes with a CPU, interactive device, digitally- patented, award winning teaching tool, syllabi specific course content, UPS, server, speakers and white board. A resource coordinator will set up and maintain the set up in school and also train teachers on its usage.

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

At the implementation level, we sensed apprehension from the schools, as they were uncertain of the usage, implementation and hardware upkeep of the solution post installation. We addressed their concern by providing full time resource coordinators in schools, on rolls to ensure assistance and resolve any issues on the day to day usage of the hardware.

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

Digitally is our patented multimedia enabled teaching tool which is a part of all our digital classrooms. This award winning tool has several attributes which makes it a superior e content solution for schools. We are currently in the process of developing a learning aid using the tablets.
