Indian education system, from the primary education to the test preparation, revolves around facts and figures. Analysis and critical thinking are absent from the education system, and the emphasis is laid only on WHAT and WHEN rather than WHY and HOW. Such a situation stems from the inflexible school education system, which gives emphasis on marks/ranks and rote learning. This in turn has negatively impacted the standards of both class room training and teaching. Because of this, when students appear for premium examinations like UPSC / Group – I in which analysis matters, they find themselves ill equipped to succeed. Training sector is unfortunately bereft of talent and is concentrated only in Tier – I cities. The need of travelling to and lodging in bigger cities for their educational needs poses an economic and emotional burden on students from rural areas, and Tier - II and Tier - III cities. The costs associated with class room teaching work to the disadvantage of both the institutions and the learners. Moreover, most test preparation aspirants rely on multiple sources for information and instruction, and such needs cannot be met by class room based training providers only.
High quality and innovative digital content consisting of educational videos and accompanying audio, pdf and doc files, accessed through an online portal and apps is the solution for the stated problem. Internet access at affordable rates in even remote parts of India has made Digital Education an attractive and indispensable proposition. Online education, using appropriate pictures and animations, leaves an immediate imprint in the minds of the learners. Quality of teaching can be sustained as only a few high quality faculty can reach millions of students who can learn at their own pace and time of choice. It eliminates the compulsion of students to travel to major cities for their test preparation needs and thus saves them both time and money. Learning Space, known for its authenticity, has already established itself as the ‘go to’ platform for test preparation aspirants. more
