Classplus, India’s leading platform for teachers and coaching centers to go digital, has launched a campaign – One Year of Lockdown, reflecting on the most unusual year for the education industry. The video shows the remarkable speed at which educators adopted online teaching and team Classplus scaled up during the lockdown. The team delivered important features like Live Classes in less than 100 hours and onboarded 5000+ educators on the platform in less than seven days at the onset of the lockdown in March last year.
The education industry has undergone a sea of change since the nation-wide lockdown was announced a year ago to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools, colleges, and coaching institutes shut down overnight, with no visibility on how learning will continue. Institutes and private tutors were the worst hit, and risked losing their primary source of income. It was an unusual situation and the only solution was to adapt, and do it quickly. While going digital was the only way forward, they often struggled to jump across platforms like Zoom, WhatsApp, Google Drive to synchronise their teaching activities. An affordable all-in-one platform that took care of all their teaching and administrative requirements was the need of the hour, and Classplus stepped up to the challenge. There was a massive inflow of 10000+ educators looking to transition to online teaching and do so seamlessly. Classplus team worked tirelessly around the clock to deliver them quick relief from the unforeseen gap in business continuity. It was important to ensure students did not remain cut off from their teachers and lose a year of education.
“Post lockdown, teachers were under a lot of stress since they were not used to technology and suddenly, teaching required them to use multiple tools. We wanted to be their pillar of strength so that all they had to do was focus on teaching while Classplus took care of the rest. We quickly introduced the right set of features they needed and ensured a smooth transition to online.” commented Mukul Rustagi, co-founder, Classplus.
Classplus has been one of the startups to have weathered the pandemic and revolutionized online teaching in India. Classplus offers educators and coaching institutes an all-in-one mobile app that allows them to run their messaging, take video classes, sell online courses, conduct online tests, manage payments and student engagement, all on a single, easy to use platform. In the past one year, Classplus has become the digital identity of more than 100,000+ educators across 1500+ cities by empowering them through technology.
