Report Bee is partnering with AMM Foundation to launch Cloud Vidyashram, an educational initiative that envisions to provide “quality education that is free for all” using the available technology and knowledge in the public domain.
We aim to translate selected Khan Academy videos to tamil and offer it to schools in a format that can be easily consumed by students. This leads us to our next question.
What is Khan Academy?
Khan Academy is a non-profit organisation that provides free world-class education for anyone, anywhere in the world through pre-recorded videos. They have an extensive library of more than 4,200 videos predominantly in Maths and Science.
These videos have transformed learning for thousands of students, mostly reaching to those students who are comfortable in understanding English. What is preventing these videos from being accessible to a larger student population is localization – the language barrier.
We believe that translated Khan Academy videos will go a long way in assisting a child’s learning process. The project envisages to bring standardization in content delivery to the students. It also creates a platform to provide a secondary mode of education delivery to bridge the deficit that we face currently.
In addition to making the videos available in Tamil, the project will create a platform to measure the progress of students and hence improve their learning by suggesting necessary corrective action.
