Technopark-based educational technology research and development company Oztern on Tuesday launched a unique formula for effective e-learning.
The e-learning formula, developed by Oztern, has the right mix of study content, adaptive learning technology and user engagement with game play mechanics.
Oztern is introducing study packages for entrance test preparation for medical, engineering and chartered accountancy courses.
Other courses include foundation programmes for students in Classes 6-10, interactive learning programmes for students in Classes 1-5, English language programmes and employment coaching for competitive exams in government and banks.
The formula is designed to impart personalised learning by which it can assess and understand the individual student strength and weakness and with its innovative adaptive learning technology can deliver high quality content customised to meet a student’s specific needs.
Students do not need the Internet to study the content available in the gadget. These educational gadgets are powered by ‘Cloud Computing’ using normal USBs/tablets and computers.
The technology developed by Oztern continuously optimises learning for each individual student and instructs the content parts which the students are most ready to learn. As the student studies through a course, and regularly reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also understood.
Saiju V. Stella, CEO Oztern Technology said: “The coaching market in the country, worth US$12 billion, is mainly divided into three segments – private tuitions till Class 12, entrance test preparation and employment coaching.
“This market is expected to grow 12 percent every year but is highly fragmented and localised. With our new technology, we bring this fragmented sector under one umbrella and thus bring in a radical change in the existing educational learning experience,” said Stella.
The new technology engages students by incorporating gaming into the study programme. The system rewards the student’s achievements and motivates them to reach their study goals within the available time.
“Our game play mechanics helps them to build competitive spirit and confidence in their learning,” Stella added.
