In India, students across the country in both rural and urban areas have limited access to quality learning that is effective and affordable. Majority of the youth population does not have access to computers and
shortage of power in many areas across simply compliment this problem. With the introduction of Distance Education in several universities has mitigated some issues if not all.
To mitigate the above mentioned challenges, Bangalore based MobiSir Technologies is developing affordable mobile learning solutions that brings end to end mobile learning solutions in education and self learning areas at an affordable cost. The startup has launched its mXams product that helps students prepare for competitive examinations.
mXams allows students to attend regular tests and mock (practice) tests for any exam. During regular tests, the student completes answering all questions of the exam and the results are send to the exam coordinator at the end of the exam. During mock (practice) tests, the student answers a question and he is informed whether the provided answer was correct or wrong, with information of what is the correct answer to the question and additional clarifications.
mXams is a mobile application that can be installed on many phones. The startup has roped in Annamalai University to offer lessons over mobile phones.
Do you think m-learning companies should focus on either content or platform (and not both)?
