With a concept called 'TeleClassrooms', made available by Edyounet Technologies, a Kerala-based education software firm, enhanced education can be brought to the remotest places in India.
Edyounet TeleClassroom is a simple concept. State-of-the-art Education Studios are being set up in various cities in India, where advanced education is available. These Education Studios are connected with hi-tech 'TeleClassrooms' through a specially configured network. TeleClassrooms are digital classrooms which are equipped with large LCD television screens and other audio and computer gadgets.
Educational courses, mainly job-oriented and vocational ones, are transmitted from the Education Studios to these TeleClassrooms in real time. The TV and audio equipment creates a real-life classroom feel for the participants.
The USP of these digital classrooms lies in their interactive capability. Students, who attend lectures in any TeleClassroom, can ask their doubts and clarify them instantaneously. "This is like a video conference," said Ram Mohan, CEO of Edyounet Technologies, "but is tweaked more towards education purpose".
"Quality education is a serious concern in India. The world's largest youth population needs to be provided with excellent quality education. But affordable means to reach the millions of students, who live far away from cities, were not available till today. TeleClassrooms are the best possible remedy now," says Mohan.
TeleClassrooms typically work on a special network created on the backbone of the Internet. Edyounet Technologies has already tied up with leading data service operators for such connectivity across the nooks and corners of India.
Many well-known educational institutions have evinced interest in offering their courses through this medium.
