STORY BEHIND ALPHASLATE

While learning a new concept in school, a class usually gets divided into 3 categories:

  1. Students who understand what the educator has taught and are able to keep up with the class.
  2. Students who are not comfortable with the educator’s teaching style and are struggling to keep up with the class.
  3. Students who are completely clueless about what is being taught in class and are not able to keep up with the class.

This pattern is repeated for every new concept that is taught. This pattern makes it impossible to identify every child’s unique learning gaps and to bridge these learning gaps.

Fortunately, many online education companies have attempted to solve these problems. However, the 4 major problems that still persist in the education industry are:

  1. Every student’s learning aptitude is different, but current e-learning platforms provide 'one-size-fits-all' solutions that do not address the latent need for customized & personalized learning.
  2. Existing e-learning platforms create their own content. Because of this, similar modes of instruction and types of video are available across a particular platform and diverse user preferences are not catered to.
  3. Existing e-learning platforms focus on curriculum based learning and promote rote learning. Thus, students' basic foundational concepts are often weak and they are unable to apply these concepts to diverse everyday scenarios.
  4. Parents and teachers often want to play an active role in their child’s learning journey but existing e-learning platforms allow only minimal to zero involvement of parents and teachers.
