S. Chand Group to launch new App to integrate Mylestone curriculum for schools
Jaipur: Mylestone, a comprehensive digitally enabled curriculum for schools from S.Chand Group, is going interactive with an App that will allow seamless integration with the existing curriculum currently offered to schools by the platform.
Schools have seen massive disruption on account of the Covid pandemic, including physical closure due to lockdown and are expected to transition to a hybrid of physical and online education. Addressing this changed scenario, Mylestone - the school's one-stop teaching and learning partner is now going to be an interactive mobile application aligned to Mylestone curriculum. The new version will help enhance student’s performance and support teachers in day-to-day teaching. It will have everything that is needed for all stakeholders in a child’s education in the current digital era on a need basis.
The application, which is scheduled to launch on 15th March 2021 is designed for schools to operate in a post Covid scenario to ensure there is no further interruption in their studies. The newer version will include features like live teaching and learning integrated with all online platforms, designing assigning, and conducting online homework and assessment with analytics, doubt resolution support during students self-learning process and exhaustive syllabus completion, content consumption and student performance reports. Mylestone app will be an integral part of Mylestone curriculum which is already an affordable solution for schools. The app will come free with Mylestone – a major advantage for users since a similar app with any other provider in the market costs 2K to 4K per year for the student.
Speaking on the launch of new Mylestone app Vinay Sharma, Digital and Services Head, S. Chand Group said “When schools were shut and books did not reach on time, Mylestone brought the entire curriculum online, using a digital portal and mobile app, and trained the teachers to conduct online classes so that teaching and learning continues during lockdown. Just in this period, online teaching and learning through Mylestone reached over 1.5 lac students across India. The new version of Mylestone will add greater experiential value to the already expanding user base of Mylestone and make the new education process more robust and more efficient for all stakeholders – be they students, teachers, schools or parents.”
