Problems of online video conferencing
Three techies who are based in Bhubaneswar, Odisha found that students and educational institutions were shifting to online video conferencing apps for holding classes. But they realized that the video apps were not solving most of the problems like taking students attendances and also consumed lot of data within a short span. They decided to do something to help them.
No proper mode interactions
“We found that students were not getting the benefit of online video conferencing app because most of the discussions were not properly recorded nor there were digital board for interactions between students and teachers. We decided to do something,” told, Manoj Kumar, 31 co-founder of EVidyalay.
EVidyalay offers host of services
The trio came with a solution and made an app, EVidyalay that helps to connect students with their teachers and provides advanced learning management solutions like video conferencing with live class room experience, digital white board to have teacher and student interactions among host of other facilities, “Our app also provides audio-visual settings to make classes more interactive,” said Bikram Keshari Pahi, another co-founder of the start-up.
Reduces consumption of Internet data
EVidyalay has also solved major problem of students living in rural areas, “We found students from rural and remote areas has been interacting continuously with their teachers on video conferencing but lot of Internet data is consumed. We made a study and found around 600 MB data is spent for one hour of class. But our app reduces the spending to just 350-400 MB so that students can take classes for at least 3-4 hours,” said Bibhu Prasad Mohanty, another co-founder, “The students can adjust the quality of the video and also do the classes in audio mode depending upon how much data he want to use.
Attendances of students recorded
He further told Chalgenius that they have integrated the app with the virtual classrooms where the teachers can hold live classes. The attendance of the student is recorded once it registers in the virtual classroom.
Within a few months of launching, the start-up has begun to get clients. The start-up has added two founders, Om Prakash Behera and Sarada Jena recently.
