The Edtech platforms have become an app for bank exams, and also for various other competitive exams like UPSC (Union Public Service Commission), HTET (Haryana Teacher Eligibility Test), DSSSB (Delhi Subordinate Service Selection Board)
There are apps like Byju’s & gradeup that provide E-books and study materials which makes it easy for students to learn and also to access these study materials. There are a lot of E-learning apps that also help students to prepare quantitative aptitude tests with the help of various mock tests and also share journals and articles that help students with their knowledge of the relevant subjects & exams.
Unlike the conventional way of learning, mobile applications are available 24*7 so students can learn and solve their queries and questions whenever they want. The app is specially designed for young students, it is much more user friendly and they can operate it without much effort.
Most of these E-learning apps have features that parents can use to keep a track of their child’s progress and figure out a way to improve their performance if there is any room for improvement. It is not just about the children, but other stakeholders like the parents and teachers who might not be familiar with technology and such user-friendly platforms can help all the stakeholders to take advantage of the apps.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, online learning has become the new normal and it has helped everyone to explore a completely new option of learning, that is virtual learning. It has given us a chance to figure out the advantages and challenges of virtual learning.
The pandemic has been a driving force in the rise of these ed-tech platforms.
