Award winning EdTech Startup Zermelo Technologies product ‘ZeClassroom’ proves to be ideal for Online Classes
Zermelo Technologies, an award winning EdTech startup, announced that its platform ZeClassroom has been specially designed to conduct Online Classes in the rural areas where Internet and bandwidth availability is a challenge. ZeClassroom has users across the globe and has proven its efficacy in remote places like Shivanahalli in Karnataka, Palghar in Maharashtra, Bhatinda in Punjab, Jammu and also in other metro and non-metro cities.
Students are currently dependent on multiple tech solutions for attending Online Classes. They rely on different apps for sharing documents, video conferencing, online exams, viewing study materials and recorded videos, etc. which makes education and learning cumbersome for students and educators. As primary face-to-face interactions happen over video conferencing, the key concern from parents is the money spent on expensive internet data plans for video conferencing. Moreover, security and privacy during video conferencing is often compromised.
Several users across the globe have reported security issues in well-known video conferencing apps where hackers have joined the conferences creating a panic among students. Unauthorised users who receive the video conference link can join the session and the educators may not even notice it at all, creating a security risk.
ZeClassroom is a single cost effective application with all features bundled to allow full-fledged ‘Learn from Home’. Addressing the prime concern that is security; there is a 3-level authorisation and each user has individual credentials using which they are authenticated. The application ensures that one user can login only from one device at a time making it highly secure. ZeClassroom is browser based — which means no installation is required; thereby preventing hackers from stealing any information from the device. Most important of all, it consumes internet data in the range of 100 to 400 MB for a session of one hour for students, when compared to 1 GB or more by other applications.
Talking about the idea behind ZeClassroom, CEO of Zermelo Technologies Sairam V said, “Our teams designed and developed ZeClassroom keeping in mind the fact that low internet bandwidth is still a reality for a large section of people, and that it should not come in the way of students and educators. We always believe real solutions are inclusive.” ZeClassroom’s intuitive user interface has been designed for students of any age to easily use the application using minimum number of clicks. Management users can do the one-time setup in the application in less than an hour.
Students and educators can connect with each other irrespective of the distance and ensure there is no stoppage to learning. Echoing the same Malarkody Sekar, Principal, Sri Ramakrishna Vidya Kendra said, “Our school is situated around Bannerghatta forest near Bangalore. Many students in the hamlets around the forest are now attending online classes conducted by our school to continue education during the pandemic, using ZeClassroom.”
