Edyounet TeleClassrooms, an innovative way of learning

The lacunae that a Digital Distance Learning Platform is addressing… Students who live far away from cities often lag behind, though they are not intellectually poor. What they lack is the kind of education available in cities. As majority of them, especially girls, could not afford to be in cities to support themselves with quality education, they were subject to natural, yet, unwarranted discrimination in their rights of getting quality learning facilities. Eminent teachers are there in prominent institutions in cities. But only city brats have access to them.Fundamentally, this lacunae is the reason for India (and countries like India) remained under developed. ‘Intellectual malnutrition’ of their precious Human Capital!But the situation is changing! The advent of technology started bridging this gap. Reaching out to Students in villages and remote places is no longer a dream. It is happening. The hindrance of distance is getting shorter day by day.

Edyounet TeleClassrooms Limited, a Kochi (Kerala, India) based technology company developed and deployed a concept called ‘TeleClassroom’ Network. TeleClassrooms are making in-roads to villages and remote places carrying world class education to discerning students.The human capital of India will no longer be intellectually under nourished. So will be the world’s.

What is Edyounet?

Edyounet developed the First ‘TeleClassrooms Network in India. TeleClassroom is a normal, traditional Classroom equipped with Large LCD Screen and allied Computer and other Gadgets. Lecture sessions of teachers from TeleStudios set up in Prominent Educational Institutions will be LIVE transmitted on to Large LCD Screens of TeleClassrooms. Students come over to attend such classroom sessions and do interactive learning there. Teachers teach from TeleStudios. TeleStudios are digital lecture presentation rooms equipped with Digital writing boards, Slide presentation and Video playing capabilities. Teachers can teach in many TeleClassrooms simultaneously. They can do full screen lecture sessions, run slide shows and play education videos, thus making digital distance learning highly engaging and enjoyable for students.

Enterprises. Its a joint venture of Govt. of Kerala and SIDBI. KITCO, has a vast pool of technical and managerial experts with them. KITCO will be responsible for the overall administration, setting quality standards, day to day
monitoring of the Franchise business etc. KITCO will also bring about managerial and quality suggestions and instruct routine business methodology. KITCO’s guidance will be there on both TeleClassroom Franchisees as well as Course Providers.Quality systems suggested by KITCO will be implemented by Franchisees, Course Providers and Edyounet.

Small entrepreneurs including women folks who take up TeleClassroom Franchisees need not necessarily have the managerial skill to run a business efficiently. KITCO’s management expertize will come handy for the entrepreneurs to run Edyounet Franchise Business effectively
The Social side of Village Education As the saying goes, not all students are BAD and not all teachers are GOOD! And those GOOD teachers are very few in numbers. The whole effort is to bring them to all those who need them. Irrespective of students’ place of living, they should be getting good quality education. Edyounet is committed to that idea. Working on it relentlessly.
We are dreaming of those days when no student will have to travel to the city of a well known Educational Institution. He should be getting them to his place of stay. Technology is good enough to realize that dream, may be in the very near future.The pathway is done, inroads are being laid, and we are fast approaching the critical mass. Educational Institutions are taking note of it, Colleges are accepting it with both hands and student community is allfor it. The delay is only in time, awareness and deployment.Small entrepreneurs are coming up to join the movement, so do NRIs and employees. What started as a saunter is gaining momentum. It spreads around through minds and mights.
Reputed organizations come to take part in it. News media sense a beacon of hope and their encouraging comments roll on reams of paper and air time.
Governments started listening keenly. Enthusiasm is brewing.
A peculiar scenario of combined possibility; Education and Entrepreneurial growth. Thousands of entrepreneurs will bloom giving life changing learning facilities for lakhs of discerning students.Tomorrow, world will be a better place to live.The world is moving, so should you. Catch up. Either as a Course Provider, or as a TeleClassroom Franchisee. Or as a College or a School to provide the infrastructure to set up a TeleClassroom or as a Banker to facilitate the finance to the one who wants to jump into the bandwagon. Catch up with it as a Student or even as a Counsellor or the one to guide the students to the classrooms. If not any of these,be there as a supporter, to tell the generation next, that we lived our life for you; and for your better learning and better living…
But; Do Catch up with this noble cause…
