Rajeev Karwal, Founder and CEO, Milagrow Business & Knowledge Solutions on education content for tablets
Tablets have a huge potential in digital learning and distance learning. These devices are uniquely capable of fostering diverse kinds of interactions between students, teachers and administrators. However, it is also true that in India internet speeds are not very good also no free roaming is available. It will take some time, before our institutions are able to take maximum advantage of the tablet technology. Tablets, which enable online education, are the ultimate educational solution for a country like India, where there is lack of quality teachers and schools.
What about Content?
We have loaded a lot of digital content, which is available for free on the Internet. We have loaded Autodesk, AutoCad, and lot of dental, medical, and online MBA content is provided with our tablet. Much of our educational content is for primary schools. Lots of people want to profit out of it. I don’t think in the same direction. If content is available online for free, then the same can be placed inside the tablet and offered free to consumers. Completely free schools till grade eight can be done in tablet.
