In the wake of the foreboding COVID-19 pandemic, the country is undergoing a complete shutdown of all public and private institutions, such as schools, colleges and coaching centres. In a bid to streamline this educational disruption and to continue the process of learning and knowledge dissemination, Bright tutee, India’s edtech platform, has pulled all plugs to supplement the students' loss of school time and everyday lessons.
To this end, the edutech player has extended free study content and exam preparation kits to all students until the crisis subsides. It has also partnered with the state education boards of Rajasthan, Haryana and Nagaland, launching its free digital learning app for all of their network schools.
The tech-driven online learning portal in their mission to furnish world-class education at affordable prices to every Indian student has observed a whopping 225 per cent increase in usage. Moreover the average time a student spent learning through the online learning portal grew by 3 folds in this period. Also, around one lakh students subscribed to the company’s live engagement Youtube channel to avail comprehensive learning classes from a faculty comprising the topmost teachers of the country.
More than 78 per cent of students utilizing the Bright Tutee app belong to tier-2 and tier-3 cities.
Commenting on the new developments, Anant Goyal, Director and founder of Bright Tutee said,” the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the entire professional and educational world to an indefinite halt. With schools and colleges remaining shut, it was given that a student's learning process would be severely affected, especially those from the remote and backward areas of the country.
We, at bright tutee, as conscious corporates and responsible citizens have taken the task of disseminating knowledge through our free digital learning app, to those who need it the most. We have received an overwhelming response from students and teachers from all across the country in recognition of our efforts. To see even a student coming from a low-income background get access to quality education in the wake of the shutdown is an immensely gratifying experience. We at Bright Tutee, have always believed in combining business with benevolence. “
