editor ji is not just another news app. It’s a multilingual video news platform that provides a completely different way to experience news on-the-go and seeks to provide personalised newscasts using a powerful AI algorithm. The company is founded by one of the country’s leading news anchors, Vikram Chandra.

Today video news faces multiple issues and these are the #5reasonswhy there is the need for an alternative.

1. TV news faces challenges around its business model. Carriage fees and a complete reliance on TRP driven advertising has led to a slide in content quality. Besides, anyone watching TV news has no choice over the content being shown – and, by definition, has to consume whatever is being shown on the screen. The race for TRPs means that the news is often drowned by views and opinions, which can also lead to charges of bias. Read more

Technology has advanced at such a rapid pace in the last few decades that it has changed the face of every system. It has been optimising every industry of the world and education is no exception to this. e-learning is one such transformation that has swept the education sector. Though e-learning has been around for over 30 years now, it has taken an unprecedented change in the recent times. System optimisation has changed the way e-learning has been  implemented.

 

Now the question that arises when we are optimising the education sector using technology is” How can e-learning improve traditional educational practices for practical knowledge?”Let us explore how edtech optimises the education system and thus arrive at an answer to our question.

 

Traditional teaching methods require teachers to spend part of their energies in setting up the classroom, using a chalkboard, drawing up illustrations, managing a classroom and other such monotonous tasks. Introducing assistive video modes of education will not only cut down the monotony but also give teachers access to greater tools to make classes more interactive and include knowledge instilling sessions. Instead of explaining the working of an induction motor to a mechanical IES aspirant by drawing it on board, one can visually display the functioning of the motor using an audiovisual presentation. The knowledge will not only be implanted into the mind of the student, but it will sprout out as a learning curve when he/she is ACTUALLY working on the said motor. The same can be implemented for almost every niche and domain of education. Read more
