Gurucool, an educational networking platform that offers a suite of phygital tools to connect learners and educators, is planning to launch 15 new centres in 6 cities by Q1 2022. With a vision to personalize education and make it universally accessible and empathetic, the venture will incubate new ideas, provide cutting-edge technologies and deliver breakthrough learning material with the launch of its next-generation coaching classes.
Backed by Zulie Ventures (U.S) & FreeFlow Venture Builders, Gurucool offers more than 25 tools and a vast content pool; it is empowering educators like schools and colleges to go online and build their digital infrastructure which enables learners to find, connect and learn from them.
Gurucool is geared towards solving the problem of the digital divide by providing Conference Hall Teaching that is also streamed online. In the hybrid model, students can attend the class from the centers and more students would be able to attend the live class from anywhere through video conferencing. This working model will be smart, fun and personalized in nature where students will be able to access interactive live classrooms, which will, in turn, empower students into becoming lifelong learners. The basic aim behind the idea is to create a set of democratic and digitized coaching centers so that quality education is accessible to the local as well as global audience, providing personalized learning and standardized experience.
Located in 6 different cities, the 15 centers will cater to children from classes 1-10 and offer coaching in various competitive exams along with mentoring for spoken English and IELTS, for coding, commerce and more. The programs offered at Gurucool will prepare students extensively for various academics and interest-based domains. Further, the teaching methodology adopted will focus on conceptual and application-based learning distinguishing Gurucool as an empathetic brand. The expert faculty at Gurucool will follow modern and interactive teaching methods that help students to achieve their goals so that education does not remain just about imparting knowledge but also becomes about harnessing the skills and creative medium within the learners in the best way possible.
The 24/7 self-paced online learning platform will help cross the bridge from passive to active learning by offering an interactive learning platform with the help of various smart tools including smart classes with well-trained faculty, personalised study material, various skill-building workshops and sessions, easily accessible digital library on the learning app along with regular progress report. This strategy with smart tools blends real-time instruction with lessons that generate creative outcomes for the learners and aids in fostering engagement and optimized learning.
Adil Meraj, Founder and CEO of Gurucool puts forward his views and the company’s objective behind the launch of new centers, “What OYO did with hotel rooms, Gurucool wanted to do something similar with coaching classes. We wanted to create a model for educational centers with personalised learning, localised community and standardised experience. And we did! Physical classes have space and time constraints. Digital classes lack the soul. Phygital is the future. Our next Gen Coaching Classes combine the flavor of physical classes and technology of the digital world to make learning possible in a Phygital Reality.
