According to an official release on July 23, Edugain.com, an online math learning platform conceptualised and founded by Delhi-based educators and tech industry veterans has been officially launched in India. The website offers a comprehensive and effective assessment infrastructure that focuses on helping a child understand the subject of mathematics categorised by classes and topics. Edugain.com has fine-tuned services for 15 countries, including India, US, UK, Canada and Australia for students of classes 4 to 10.
Edugain.com is backed by a group of teachers, technologists and parents who got together to create a system that could help their own children. Once they successfully created a system that they felt satisfied the needs of their children, they decided to share it with others so that everyone can benefit from it.
The speciality of this unique math eLearning platform is that it can create virtually unlimited number of new questions of various types – objective, descriptive, fill in the blanks, matching etc. on any topic in maths, along with step-by-step solutions to each of them. As a result, it enables users to do unlimited practice and assessments in the topics of their choice while learning simultaneously the approaches on how to solve each question. Practice and assessments can be done online or can be printed out and done on paper as per the user’s convenience. Other than the school curriculum, Edugain.com also provides printable worksheets, online practice and online tests to students preparing for competitions such as IMO, Olympiad, or NSTSE and guarantee that the goals are finally achieved.
Online education is becoming very popular for several reasons these days. Comments Om Kanwar, co-founder, Edugain.com who is a Computer Science graduate from IIT Delhi, “The e-learning market in India is estimated to be around $3 billion. The e-learning sector is expected to receive a boost from the government. India’s e-learning sector is expected to grow at a compounded annual rate of 17.4 percent between 2013 and 2018, twice as fast as the global average.” Because of the higher internet and smartphone penetration, the online learning space in India is growing manifold.
He further adds, “Success at so many professions and in so many fields depends on being good at maths, engineering, CA, architecture, music, investment banking, trading, stock markets, and the list goes on. Maths thus can be seen as the most important subject for a child, and still it is this same subject that children fear the most. But, not anymore!”
According to Anamika Sinha, co-founder, Edugain.com, “We want to provide a way for students to hone their mathematical skills, but as we expand, we’ll be adding content that is driven by our philosophy. We’ll also be adding a parallel system targeted to the subject of science”
