Meritnation Accelerates Online Learning and Gets 100% Success Using WizIQ
Meritnation was set up by a team of corporate executives, who wanted to bring a difference in the field of education. Having achieved success, they understood the challenges students in India faced on daily basis to cope with the competitive environment. Students needed additional help in learning concepts, especially in science and mathematics. However, in absence of a better choice they were forced to join tuitions, where they spent hours sitting in a group of 500 students trying to tackle complex concepts.
Meritnation offered formative assisted learning, where students took tests and were guided to identify areas where they were weak. Based on the assessment, students could take supplementary courses from the comfort of their homes and as such were able to overcome learning challenges and save on commute time as well.
However, when some of these students requested for teacher aided courses, the team at Meritnation felt challenged. The team understood too well that no amount of content could replace a teacher. They took this as the next step in the evolution of the company and decided to offer a pilot teacher aided course. However, to do that they also needed technology that would enable them to offer live classes. At the same time, they didn’t want to become an online version of tuitions, hoarded with students scrambling through live content. Therefore, the technology requirement moved beyond live sessions to one that provided flexible, fluid communication.
The team came across WizIQ platform through some online case studies, and were soon convinced to use it for Meritnation as well.
WizIQ allowed Meritnation to hold live synchronous classes, where the teacher could not only interact with the entire group of students but also provide individual feedback through various mediums like video, text, and voice chat. Students could also download class recordings, so in case they missed a class they didn’t lag behind in the course.
WizIQ online classroom enabled Meritnation to conduct online courses with
-Live online classes
-Multiple communication tools – video, voice, text chat
The course was a phenomenal success. Now the company is planning to offer regular teacher aided courses to students, powered by WizIQ.
