This Online Learning App can help Schools, Students, and Teachers in a COVID-19 World
Posted: May 13, 2021
The education system in the country was perturbed when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the Indian land. All schools across the nation have been temporarily closed to contain the spread of the Coronavirus. Over 32 crore students have been affected due to the nationwide lockdown.
Ever since the lockdown was imposed, schools and educational institutes started devising ways to provide education to students at home. Out of all solutions, online and digital learning methods are helping schools in the best way to ensure the continuity of learning amid the current predicament.
Entab Infotech has been assisting schools with its revolutionary products during the pandemic.
Toby Augustine and Jitender Sharma have been an integral part of the team ever since the advent of the company and stand like strong pillars, no matter what the situation.
The Road to Ideation of an Uninterrupted Learning Solution
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in India, educational institutes, especially schools, have to be closed in the very beginning to curb the spread of the virus. Since children are more vulnerable to the virus, the step was crucial. "All this happened in haste, which didn’t give much time for most of the schools to plan anything properly," Jitender says.
He further adds, "ever since the inception of the lockdown, most of our clients from different parts of the country have been sharing their experiences with us." The schools wanted a solution that would provide online learning to the students and help with proper evaluation and assessment. "And so, we decided to customize CampusCare® ERP, the most-preferred school ERP software in India," Jitender states.
How Entab Empowers Schools Amid COVID-19?
The new features of CampusCare® ERP include learning with video sharing, internal communication, online file sharing with students, and online submission of projects and assignments. Most importantly, the software allows students and teachers to communicate via messages. Unlike most of the online and digital learning solutions out there, CampusCare® ERP helps teachers perform evaluation and discern how effective online teaching-learning is coming out to be. Through this, they can make changes in the lecture delivery to enhance the learning outcomes.
"Online learning is not just about conducting live classes. Educators need to assess the performance of the students to ensure the best results. And so, we added the important features such as online project submission and file sharing to make the process of learning more advantageous", adds Jitender.
Founded by Shaji Thomas, and Lawrence Zacharias in 2000, Entab has been empowering schools with its state-of-the-art products and solutions, such as CampusCare® ERP, a trusted school ERP software in the country, and the latest innovation, CampusCare® i-Learn, a comprehensive school LMS powered with modern technologies.
In addition to CampusCare® ERP, Entab has also launched a 3D Interactive Learning Content solution that helps students to learn at home. It gives learners the power to understand abstract and complex topics without any difficulty. Based on the fundamentals of immersive learning, the solution comes equipped with resources such as video, 3D simulations, 3D animations, 3D interactive models, and virtual labs. The 3D Interactive Learning Content solution is an exceptionally designed solution that provides practical learning to students. With a large repository of subject matters and 3000+ on-page interactive exercises and quizzes, students can learn in the comfort of their homes.
Modern technologies are essential in the process of learning these days. "Present-day students respond well to technological advancements in the classroom; hence, we decided to create a solution that helps them acquire education at home. And 3D interactive content is highly eloquent in doing that. Features such as virtual labs and 3D simulations help them perform several experiments while they cannot visit a physical laboratory", adds Toby Augustine.
Because Digital Learning is the New Normal
"Technology may not replace teachers in the school paradigm; however, it can empower teachers to make the process of teaching-learning more constructive and beneficial. At Entab, we’re doing just that!" says Augustine.
While we hope the situation in the country and the world gets better, it’s uncertain when will schools and educational institutes reopen. Also, schools and educationists need to be more prepared and pragmatic in adopting new technologies and solutions. Products such as school management software is strongly required in the modern education system.
Be it online learning or new technologies, students can learn at their own pace and understand things in a better way. Not to mention, technology makes the process more flexible and so, has attracted more learners amidst the ongoing crisis.
