Explain your idea in details:
The problem faced while thinking of adopting digital education is that of high-end computer devices like laptop/desktop and developing intuitive and simple user interfaces that can be easily understood by students, especially that of primary and secondary grade. The other major problem students face in developing countries like India is poor internet connectivity, which generally hinders some students' progress. To cope with these problems, we have developed Tech2Teach. Due to its unique cross-platform (Web app integrated with messaging app) approach, students neither have to navigate complex web pages searching for content or ask queries nor worry about poor internet connectivity. This invention is the only solution of its kind in the category of Learning Management System. Our software provides each student with permanent encrypted and unlimited cloud storage (cloud notebook), which they and their parents can easily access by typing a single keyword on their platform. So, they no longer have to worry about limited phone storage, and systems automatically update this cloud storage with necessary information, files, and performance reports of students regularly. This storage is completely free due to its unique cross-platform approach, and it won't require anyone (either client or company) to handle the charges.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
LMSs have become a standard tool in higher education for facilitating interaction, communication, and collaboration with and among students. As a result, learning management systems (LMS) have evolved into an invaluable method for promoting teaching and learning in higher education. Aside from developing and enhancing students' communication skills and assisting teaching in general, studies have discovered that the use of LMS contributes to sustainability by significantly decreasing material demand and maintaining energy. Our LMS also subdues the need for devices with heavy configuration, extensive storage for both teachers and students. Also, this will reduce the need to recreate and store various documents(even in physical classrooms). This also subdues expenses as through this, all the study material can be purchased by one person, stored, and used by all in the clique, thus reducing costs and presenting a fluent interface.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
We are in the pre-market stage of an LMS Service for schools that outstand other LMS features like free unrestricted cloud storage and messaging app at students' end. It is quite challenging for someone new to stand in the tough market full of competitors, so we decided to enter the market through non-metropolitan cities where there is approximately no market competition. Therefore, we have started by approaching institutes (currently in talks with 14 institutes) personally and demonstrated why our LMS, the benefits and some specific and unique features of our LMS. By 2022 we expect to provide service to 10 institutes (10000+ students) (2 non-profit institutes). By 2023 60 institutes (60000+ students) (12 non-profit institutes). By 2024 150 institutes (150000+ students) (30 non-profit institutes). By 2025 250 institutes (250000+ students) ( 50 non-profit institutes). By 2026 350 institutes (350000+ students) (70 non-profit institutes). Tech2teach aims to be a high-quality educational bridge connecting teachers and students worldwide, so we will provide our service to schools at minimal charges that is $3.5 per student per year for schools with a fee of more than $2,000 a year. For school having fee between $200 and $2000, there will be charges of $1 per student per year.
I am a final year undergraduate student in the computer science department at IIT Kanpur. I am 21 years old. My topics of interest are Machine learning, Game development. I am very good at my teamwork skills and recently our this project also won first prize in the Startup Master Class's Ideathon competition organised by AWS( Amazon Web Service).
