Tata ClassEdge, a leading provider of innovative technology-based learning solutions for schools, announced a partnership with Knewton, the world’s leading adaptive learning company, and the launch of Cosmos, an integrated suite of products. Pioneering the introduction of personalised learning in India, Tata ClassEdge’s Cosmos and Knewton’s adaptive learning platform, will help schools across India provide individualised learning paths for each student.
Cosmos includes a mobile-based parent app, home access to students via tablets/web and a value education curriculum, in addition to the existing classroom, planning and assessment solutions. Through the use of Knewton’s adaptive learning platform, students will receive specific, real-time recommendations based on how they learn, what they mastered, goals they have set with their teacher, and what works best for similar students. Parents will get a detailed analysis of their child’s academic performance with actionable feedback, instead of just knowing their child’s scores.
At the occasion, Nirav Khambhati, CEO, Tata ClassEdge, said, “The introduction of Tata ClassEdge Cosmos is a turning point in our initiative to improve the effectiveness of education systems in India and to empower teachers, students and parents as well. Our partnership with Knewton, a renowned name in adaptive learning, helps bring global expertise in the personalisation of education for Indian students and will further strengthen their learning experience.”
“It is a comprehensive digital framework with multiple tools for the students, teachers and parents to bridge communications and act as a seamless learning platform between school and after school hours that will benefit all the stakeholders. The intelligent content platform of Cosmos recognises the learning curve of the student and gives them the opportunity to learn at his/her pace and explore new areas of interest,” he added.
Tata ClassEdge Cosmos will extend teaching and learning from school to home and augment the current classroom solution with individualised learning experiences. The technology is currently being run in pilot batches across India and will be made available to schools, enabled with Tata ClassEdge technologies by April 2016.
