Challenge: Despite e learning solutions being implemented, challenges still remain in the education systems. The main problem even today is that of low learning outcomes, low engagement in class and low participation of teachers.
ICT Innovation: Callystro works towards developing interactive content, completely game and activity based which solves the biggest problem which is the learner engagement. Learners repeatedly like to play games. Hence the solution is capable of holding both the attention and retention of concepts through repeated engagement by the child. It is self-paced, multilingual and does not assume any prior reading abilities or computer knowledge. The solution is multi graded and the learner starts and moves up the learning ladder based on his/her current level and progress. The solution is integrated with an LMS for teachers. The entire solution is available as an offline solution or online on the cloud. It has been developed using Adobe flash technology. The solution is also available on phones and tablets.
Impact: Callystro provides services to many low cost or rural schools on a low cost high volume model.
