“Online learning shapes future generations”
Bengaluru: Online learning was previously seen as an alternative for students, especially those unable to attend their authorized schools, the pandemic essentially necessitated online learning as a convenient and safe way to continue education during lockdown or the quarantine. Many urban areas are rapidly adopting such techniques, many students may find it difficult to switch to online learning due to two key factors: lack of network and teachers unable to keep up with rapidly changing technology .
Even before the coronavirus pandemic, the eLearning industry was growing rapidly. Although the students have the required skills, many of them face problems related to placement assistance. “Not only do students learn skills, but they are also placed. Through training in new-age technology and preparing students for IT careers, students get relatively well-paying jobs in leading IT companies compared to what was available to them before,” says Sricharan. Tadepalli, COO and co-founder of byteXL.
“Employers no longer have to spend huge sums of up to $20,000 to train freshmen and can expect lower attrition rates. industry-level challenges from day one of employment.Plus, unlike other EdTech platforms, byteXL’s B-2-B model reduces the financial burden on students and helps them focus on their education “, he adds.
It’s not just Tier 1 cities, as they can handle learning quickly. “The hybrid education model caters to students in any city preparing and preparing them for an IT career. Even reaching out to Tier 3 colleges in predominantly rural areas with little or no internet connectivity” , he said.
Teaching has certainly embraced technology, but it cannot replace instructor-based teaching. “In a way, it would complement instructor-led instruction. Technology has allowed students to learn on their own, but it’s not the way to go in the long run because it will be devoid of student-teacher interaction and analytical skills development. Hybrid learning will be complemented by upcoming technologies including AI, virtual reality and others,” he explains.
“We are aiming for expansion plans i.e. reaching 150 colleges with 240,000 students from the current 70 institutes covering 72,000 students. At present, we have a dominant presence in Telangana, Andhra and expansion fast in Maharashtra. We have also signed institutes in Punjab and Rajasthan as well and are currently expanding to other states,” he says.
It is vital for academics and companies to train students in such a way that they become self-sufficient. “The future can be bright as long as universities and corporations train students in ways that reduce attrition rates, reduce the need for on-the-job training, empower students – and all while making affordable EdTech. There is no shortage of talent in India, but we just have to play a role in nurturing it in the right direction,” he concludes.
