Abhinav Dhar, Director- K12, Educomp Solutions Ltd says the Indian education sectors  as travelled a long way from chalk and talk to smart classes

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

Indian education sector is today among the fastest growing in the world. There are close to 15 lakhs government schools and 1 lakh private schools in the country. Out of this, only 7-10 percent of the private schools have tapped the potential of multimedia classroom teaching whereas in government schools, it has barely made any inroads.

Kind of solution you provide to schools.

Educomp Smartclass is today the largest player in the digital content solutions space. We provide complete solution to the school- from hardware to India’s largest repository of high quality digital content. A knowledge centre manned by Educomp resource coordinator is set up in each school to help teachers on a daily basis. Total support is provided in upkeep and maintenance.

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

When we launched Smartcalss back in 2004, it was the first of its kind digital content solutions for schools and as with most pioneering initiatives, did meet with some reservations. Schools needed to be convinced about its effectiveness and teacher community too was hesitant to adopt technology alongside the tried and tested chalk and talk method.

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

Smartclass CTS, the new avatar of the popular Smartclass program is an amazingly versatile, rich-on-technology innovation, which will make every teaching-learning session much the more stimulating, interactive, enlightening Educomp will continue to innovate and create new products that will enhance a student’s educational experience.
