Tutopia app assures easy and affordable online learning for West Bengal Board students
Kolkata/IBNS: Tutopia, an education app, was recently launched in Kolkata with an aim to facilitate online learning for the students of classes 8 to 10 studying under West Bengal Board.
Tutopia announced that it had gathered a total of 40-50 crore in their first phase of investments.
“Through the Tutopia learning App, we are providing a new-age learning tool for the Bengali medium students. We have put in hundreds of man-hours to understand the students’ learning needs by mapping their goals, strengths, weaknesses, and interests to get the best out of them," Subrata Roy, Director, Tutopia Pvt Ltd, said.
"We are also developing curricular for the Higher Secondary Classes to be followed by ICSE and CBSE Board,” said Roy, who thought of creating this App during the Covid pandemic phase when he found that there was no proper e-learning course or tool for the Bengali students.
Tutopia also has plans to use cycle as a symbol and marketing tool to enter the homes of people living in rural West Bengal.
He shared, "Employers need self-learners, that's only possible when the student wants to learn and not forced to do so."
He added, "We expect this app to gain popularity in Bangladesh and among Bengalis living outside Bengal, especially NRI Bengalis who want their kids to explore Bengali content."
The Directors of Tutopia have onboard teachers from multi-disciplinary streams with knowledge of developing course materials using 3D-animation and graphical representations, infographics which promises to make study exciting.
“We look for tutors with a high emotional and intelligence quotient, excellent communication skills, and high level of empathy, to build the curriculum for the App. The curriculum has been prepared according to the updated syllabus,” said Gaurav Dugar, Director, Tutopia Pvt Ltd.
