Providing an opportunity to every Indian student to receive personalised education through AI
Conception & development of a digital education product to enable every Indian student to afford personalised education.
With the rise of digitisation, the number of Internet users in India is expected to reach 465 million by mid-2017. As tablets, phablets, phones and laptops become an item of daily use, there is an opportunity to reach more people than ever before.
India is trying to provide basic education to its large population, but with the teacher versus student ratio and the financial capacity to spend personally on education, both being too low, a large bunch of students are unable to receive personalised coaching.
Being an Indian, we are well aware of the scenario and the need for personalised coaching. Our challenge was not only to build an educational product that empowered any student having the desire to excel but also keep in mind the economic reality and internet speeds and device usage across urban and rural India.
The project being self-initiated and self-funded, we had our entire team of Marketers, Strategists, Coders and Designers to develop a strategy that would enable our vision to the most logical output. All our research unanimously directed us to the need to develop a digital product that was driven by ML & AI and extremely affordable. With self-learning, the product would be able to resolve the personalisation issue and assist in gauging every individual student on their individual capacity and speed to learn desired courses.
We Indians, as a vast majority of people, have always felt the pinch of inadequate funds at various stages of our lives. Since we wanted to build a product that could reach every student with an internet plan in India, we decided to give people the power of Education by making free of cost and only charge a minimum amount for enhanced features.
Secondly, psychologically we all feel pressurised when it comes to studies and appearing for exams. We all have our favourite teachers who interpret us and leads us in a relevant manner. Understanding this basic human need to have someone who understands us, learns our needs, our drawbacks and assists us accordingly at a convenient time and speed, we developed our AI, The Coach.
