Brief description of the programme/project/Initiative :
If you thought that www.24x7guru.com is just another e-learning portal, think again! Education had varied options vis-à-vis content providers, through schools, teachers, tutorials, parents, internet and E-learning websites. However, there existed no application that intelligently assessed the conceptual understanding/comprehension in the subject. It was here that LearnSmart India Pvt. Ltd. took the market by storm with its application 24x7guru.com – one which fundamentally believes that once a student understands the concepts, he is less likely to forget, as opposed to rote learning. 24x7guru.com is an intelligent web-based assessment application that enables a student to take tests as per the course curriculum: chapter-wise, periodic and customized! The application is parameterized in terms of complexity levels and provides a new set of questions each time a student attempts to answer. The scalability is scientifically designed and is aimed at drilling down conceptual comprehension as well as functional and relative clarity amongst students. The portal provides for objective type questions with instant results along with analytical feedback of performance every time the child takes the test. The application maps the progress, duly highlighting the strengths and areas of improvement in the student. With so many value additions, 24x7guru.com has become a boon for students, parents and even teachers, since its inception.

Why was the project started :
24x7guru.com is an outcome of a dream, a dream of experienced professional who were stimulated by the stress levels, low self esteem arising due to low scores in exams, the increasing level of suicides committed due to failure in exams, these and many more as prevailing in young students today. The team then committed themselves to the cause of spreading quality education beyond examination to cater to knowledge that increases the child’s self esteem, acts as a platform to enhance learning, facilitates in identifying their strengths and develops on potential.

Objective :
To train young minds to have a strong academic foundation making Young India intellectually stronger and stress free.

Target group : School students from class 3 to 10
Geographical reach : Since it’s an online platform there are no geographical limitations. 24x7guru.com has its offices in India, Middle East, Philippines and in California, Arizona, USA through its partners.
Date from which the project became operational : 24 July 2007
Is the Project still operational : YES

List the 5 key challenges faced while implementing the programme/project/initiative

  2. Lack of internet connectivity in rural and semi urban schools. We have overcome this challenge by providing infrastructure support ( by setting up servers in schools etc)
  3. Large differences in the Student to computer ratio available in schools. Overcoming this challenge is a time consuming process given the numbers involved. However, we do provide necessary computer support in schools to overcome this challenge partly
  4. The problem of Power… Overcoming the challenge through the introduction of Green labs

List the 5 points how can the prgramme serve as a model that can be replicated or adapted by others?

  1. Non threatened assessment creates room for further learning or better understanding of the subject matter amongst students.
  2. Chapter based assessments of 24x7guru ensures that the learning has taken place.
  3. Analytical reports generated guide the students in understanding Where they are going wrong and Why they are going wrong.
  4. The Guru Mapping Tool plays significant role in providing information of the level of learning been undertaken by the school as a whole/ or the Group of schools as a whole.
