GuruG, a Startup that Automates an Enjoyable Learning System
True to its name, GuruG is an app exclusively for our ‘gurujis’ or teachers. GuruG, formerly known as Guru-G is a venture that took off in 2013 with a purpose in mind. And what was that purpose? To help out the teachers all over the country. Teaching can be a pretty taxing ordeal, given the fact that you need to have an in depth knowledge of the subject and you have to pass on the knowledge to your students in such a way that they can relate to it and learn from it.
When GuruG took flight in 2013, in Bangalore, its founder Amruth Ravindranath had one objective in mind- to break the traditional norms of teaching and establish a fun-filled, gamified platform to assist and inspire teachers all over India. It aims to make the life of a teacher easier, exciting and more influential.
Features of GuruG:
GuruG has numerous unique features:
- Once the app is downloaded into your device, it can operate offline, without the help of internet.
- It is compatible with all android devices, available in iOS and also has a version supported by desktops.
- It supports multiple languages.
- It keeps the user updated with all the contemporary teaching methods and is even capable of adapting itself to various student moods!
How awesome is that?!
How it Works:
GuruG has an interesting, user-friendly platform that would help empower the teachers. All they have to do is download the app, open it and select their subject and class. They will be provided with interesting teaching techniques and tips. They will have a myriad of teaching methods to choose from and will also get a chance to discover innovative means to understand the student psyche and analyze their learning curve. Teachers can also generate reports and lesson plans using the app. GuruG is also capable of converting existing textbooks and other academic resources into less complicated, more interesting versions of themselves.
In a nutshell, it provides extremely efficient and effective teaching packages.
The present GuruG team is made up of about 26 members and is headed by Ravindranath, the CEO and founder of the startup. Currently, GuruG is an active participant in over 412 schools across five states of the country. It caters to about 4000 teachers. More than 1, 31, 000 teaching methods are incorporated in the app to make things easier for the harbingers of knowledge. The firm recently raised seed funding from the US based India Educational Investment Fund (IEIF). It is planning to expand its operations into more states of India in the near future.
GuruG is quickly becoming quite popular among many teachers and is considered to be an ideal platform to mould trainers and mentors. It has already witnessed an 86% hike in the student results and is aiming to raise the stakes even higher. Teaching is a wonderful profession, and choosing to help the teachers is even better. GuruG is a startup that supports a noble cause and given its growth rate, it is expected to travel far and wide.
