Stuck working from home? Here’s how you can stay productive

How do I manage my time?

In office, I knew I had to get in by a certain time, take a lunch break at 2pm, have tea at 6pm, etc. But, at home, I would end up having lunch at 4pm, working some days till 9pm and other days till 5pm. There was no consistency.

Expert-speak: Making a schedule for yourself can be boring, agrees Amit Kapoor, co-founder of Eupheus Learning, a Delhi-based educational technology start-up. “Everyone thinks it is there, all sorted in their ‘head’, but putting tasks down on paper could be beneficial. In fact, one can use tools like schedulers and reminders in Outlook or Google calendar so that they don’t miss an important deadline,” adds Kapoor.

A manager can definitely make the schedule for the co-worker and give timelines to be followed, as it were, in an office environment. Regular conference calls can let you stay on top of things at work, and in the loop. “According to me, work can be done from anywhere, especially if it does not demand the physical presence of an individual,” says Kapoor.

Technology is transforming both, teaching and learning, with emphasis on changing how teachers and students gather, access, analyse, present and transmit information. Here is a look at some of these novelties. 

Often criticized as ‘theoretical’, ‘exams driven’, or ‘impractical’, the Indian education system has come a long way in terms of adopting the creative approach in the last few years. The change is led by EdTech start-ups which are leveraging cutting edge technology to provide relevant education in simple yet effective ways. As a result, the country’s online education industry is projected to garner about $1.96 billion in revenue by 2021, as per a joint report by Google and KPMG. The report also suggests that the number of paid subscribers will grow about six-fold from 1.6 million now to 9.6 million.

In Greek, ‘Eupheus’ means active seeking of knowledge, a “readiness of will, to learning.” True to its name, edtech startup Eupheus Learning aims to create students who seek knowledge actively, spurred by an excitement and interest in the relevant topic.

“What we are curating as thoughts and solutions in Eupheus Learning are products that enhance both discovery as well as engage learners through various methods and technology,” says Sarvesh Shrivastava, one of the founders of Eupheus Learning.

Why the focus on “discovery” and “engagement”, we ask him. He explains that when there is a discord or variance in the “what and how”of learning at school and at home, students often fail to engage with the topic. As a result, they are compelled to adopt rote-learning for the sake of passing those three-hour-long exams. This, in turn, has long-term implications on the learning imbibed by young people, who go on to join the workforce often ill-equipped to deal with real-life business or academic matters.

Coding is a valuable skill, termed as the 21st-century literacy. Giving your child an introduction to coding skills is like giving them a magic wand to dream up bigger plans

Kids are born digital nowadays! With an early exposure to hi-tech gadgets and internet, it is but natural that kids attune themselves comfortably to the digital mode of learning. But on the other hand, this has also created a new line of duty for parents — equipping kids with relevant future ready skills that may give them an edge in this fast changing competitive world.

Thinking where to start? Well, we may have just the right suggestion for you. A current idea floating supremely in today’s digital society is that all our children must learn to code. Considered to be the ‘new basic’ or ‘second language’, code is increasingly being recognized as a core competency for every little thing that is going to take place in the near future. Trust us when we say, it is the ideal key to the future for both children and adults alike.

For the non-coding or even young parents, we know how difficult it can be for you to know where to begin? So let’s start with how you can introduce yourself and your child to the basic concepts of coding.

Bizztor India – Leading Startup News, Video & Resource Portal

India has become the third largest startup ecosystem and since 2012, the country has churned over 200 new ed-tech startups every year. Many of those harboring the big idea which can revolutionize the space.

With more than 1.5 million schools boarding over 260 million students, 751 universities and 35,539 colleges; we have earned a vital spot in the global education industry. So, when the EdTech revolution hit the Indian sub-continent less than a decade ago, many startups surfaced showcasing tremendous potential to change the way students could learn and grow.

According to a joint report released by Google and KPMG, online education market is set to grow to USD 1.96 Billion and around 9.6 million users by 2021 from USD 247 Million and around 1.6 million users in 2016. This means there is opportunity to grow for existing players and new entrants.

Unfortunately, EdTech startups with millions of funding have struggled to secure their base, let alone grow. Till date, many of these startups have died a premature death within 18-24 months of being into operation. Although each startup has a different reason for its closure, certain glaring similarities cannot be overlooked.

Let us try to analyze what may have possibly gone wrong in EdTech startups focused on K12 institutional space.

Inability to raise serious money

Many EdTech startups have changed the pivot after a year or two of operations to survive. Interestingly barring a few notable EdTech startups, majority of the EdTech startups face an issue of moving past raising seed money.

Many EdTech startups have faltered in the fund raise process – lack of scalability, chasing the wrong customer set, lack of clear differentiators, etc. have created an issue in raising fresh round of funding.

Too many offerings / players reaching the decision maker

The number of successful education startups in India can be counted on fingers. With so many startups becoming defunct within months of starting out, people need a reliable standard that validates their claims. They are becoming extremely cautious and picky while choosing the right platform.

Also, many a times decision-making and reputation baggage is also a limitation. A renowned school is not always upbeat about taking a digital solution from a new EdTech company. They either need a validation from other users or need enough visibility to be sure of who they are dealing with.

The Right Mix (Online to Offline System)

Many startups leveraged the proliferation of internet as a pivotal focus of providing online solutions to complex problems. However, what they may have failed to realize is that a completely tech-based solution would probably not work in the institutional space.

Online content/solutions always need to be supplemented with offline solutions for an EdTech startup to work in India, majorly because the required ecosystem of High Speed Connectivity, Devices and Tech Savvy Teachers is still not present apart barring International schools and few top schools in the country. For most of the schools, learning is still traditional and old school.

Lack of Digital Champions at School

Another issue with only EdTech startups stem from the fact that key drivers of digital learning in this space are teachers. They are undoubtedly the cornerstone of improving learning outcomes.

But, having been in the humdrum of traditional classroom teaching for a majority of their teaching life, they are not seemingly approachable as a tech-savvy target audience. So, reaching them and asking to adopt a new tech product is met with much resistance.

Patience is a virtue (inadvertently missing)

India has a highly competitive education space; therefore, every EdTech solution essentially has to go through a one-year long validation cycle to prove itself.  A significant amount of time is needed essentially to create a successful EdTech product.

Therefore, unlike e-commerce or other hyper local business, there is no hyper growth in this sector. Sadly enough, this becomes a problem for startups as parents and teachers do not want to engage in an association where the results can only be seen after a year.

Even investors lose patience and interest in this space if they don’t see instant results. Players have to find a way to grow and make money.

In the End

EdTech companies need to realize that no matter how unique the product, it is important to analyze the ecosystem and go ahead with their idea only if it practically solves a problem in a creative and unique way.

By applying innovative marketing strategies that resonate well with users and differentiating their product competitively, the upward trajectory of EdTech startups is sure to revive itself within the country in no time.
