Indian, Australian edtech leaders see great opportunity in collaboration
Indian edtech companies like Byju’s, Unacademy, etc. are well-known initiatives for tuitions and test preparations. These edtech startups offer content solutions for various range of subjects, which helps millions of students in India. But when it comes to installation of technology in schools of India, the implementation is quite scarce. This was the gaping hole that was identified by Indian and Australian Edtech leaders at a workshop organized in Bengaluru by Australia India Institute in collaboration with the IIT Bengaluru. At the workshop, the industry experts discussed the status of Edtech in India and how to improve the level of education in both countries. Many edtech entrepreneurs were present at the workshop that includes Mayank Kumar of UpGrad, S Kannan of Quiklrn, Ashish Vikram of Videoken, David Linke of EduGrowth (Australia) and Srikanth Ganesan of Littlemore Innovations. The main focus was to make more collaboration happen between the two countries, which would include the government as well as the private sector.
