Innovation Description

Skooldesk is an innovative e learning platform with analytics for young learners with an aim of improving test scores. The platform provides quality test questions in the four main subjects taught at primary level i.e. English, Math, Science and Social Studies. Users of the platform are able to select tests from a plethora of questions by selecting a subject and class level. Upon completion of a quiz/test, the user receives instant feedback with correct and wrong answers.

Competitive Advantage

Most of the existing innovations are not interactive to create a real learning environment that can produce tangible results. They use basic technology that is not robust enough to solve the big problems associated with low grades due to low literacy levels and math skills. Our platform is multi lingual and can be easily scaled to other countries. We have a robust analytics engine that identifies strong and weak points of an individual learner at subject and topic level. Schools using a cloud account can administer their own tests. The platform is accessible to students with disabilities (Visual and hearing). We are constantly updating our database of content to jeep up with global trends and introducing new and exciting features every 3 month cycle.
