Students accessing the online platform, made possible with years of tireless efforts put in by public-spirited young engineer-entrepreneur from a well-to-do business family Amrinder ‘Gold’ Sandhu and his team, do not even require a regular internet connection. They can just download and copy the lessons to a pen drive or a CD.
The project was huge, both financially and in scope of work. It was the sense of commitment towards the national goal of ‘Education for All’, and the passionate entrepreneur and innovator in Amrinder, which saw him and his team of dedicated professionals overcoming all hurdles in the way and taking his dream to its logical conclusion.
“Lots and lots of research work went into the project, current drawbacks and reach of our teaching system was studied in depth and analyzed. Based on the data collected several rounds of discussions took place within our core team and a broad roadmap was chalked out to provide a highly professional and forward-looking online learning programme which should be simple and accessible to teachers and students even in the remotest corners of the country.
“We involved experienced PhD teachers in preparing and presenting these lesson-by-lesson series in different subjects and for different classes as per prescribed syllabi of CBSE and ICSE. The video lecturers were again analysed from time to time and further refined from the standpoint of presentation and absorption by the target audience.’
Various visual aids have been used to explain concepts, wherever necessary. Experiments, especially in chemistry, have also been performed and recorded for better understanding of students and teachers alike.
