The Indian education system is set to transform from a traditional set-up to more innovative and contemporary learning in the wake of the fourth industrial revolution. The increasing population between the age of 6-17 years, is expected to drive the Indian education market to a mark of USD 180 billion by 2020.
The advent of IT is expected to further fuel the growth with the introduction of online courses and virtual classrooms. Lately, the sector has gone through a sea change, in terms of teaching as well as learning. A part of the traditional classroom sessions are being replaced by online sessions, thus paving the way for “hybrid education”.
The increasing penetration of IT into the sector is paving ways for a few trends such as:
RobotGuru Education Technologies Private Limited
RobotGuru is an initiative that seeks to teach robotics in an integrated manner by interweaving hardware and software using motion capture suits (HoloSuit) and virtual reality (VR). By leveraging VR and the HoloSuit, the user will be able to create a virtual 3D classroom for Robotics/AI/VR/STEAM learning.
HoloSuit is a full-body motion capture suit that tracks body movements in real-time as an immersive bi-directional interface through haptic feedback exciters. The user’s movements in the HoloSuit can be transferred onto any remote humanoid robot or be used to control virtual avatars. The VR RobotGuru solution allows students to explore, and experience activities as if they are present in that environment. This highly scalable solution is not simply an engagement tool; it allows students to explore, experience, and be involved in activities and experiments which will allow them to understand the topics much better. It is a new avenue to be explored with learners and can be an effective new way to engage those that struggle with learning or implement a variety of new learning styles. RobotGuru believe that teaching the concept of “Learn by experiment” can be executed using their education platform.
