Can Gamification Of Concepts Revolutionize The Education Process?
2012-05-24 09:05:00
The World Wide Web is a potent tool, with endless use case scenarios. It lead to emails, which killed traditional post. It lead to online gaming, which killed the video game arcade. It changed the way we bank, shop, and travel. In a country like India, Information Technology and the Mobile Web have affected us the most. Now a large percentage of Indians are connected to the Internet through at least one medium. However, one sector has still been shielded from the dynamic effects of the web: The Education Sector! Decade old syllabi, unmotivated teachers and lack of upgradation has meant today’s children learn in school in just the same way people were learning 20 years ago. However, this could all change. There exist some trailblazers who are trying to change the way our kids learn and the way they apply it in day to day life, through a process known as Gamification. Gamification is the use of  game design techniques, game thinking and game mechanics to enhance non-game...

2012-04-26 18:01:00
With student loans in the United States accumulating to over $1 Trillion USD there's very little room left under the rug to hide the reality.

Britannica To Evolve Into Digital Education, Eyes Indian Market

Encyclopedia Britannica has announced the stoppage of printing its iconic multi-volume book sets. Instead, it will focus solely on its digital encyclopedia and education tools. Being in India for just 12 Years, Britannica feels it has tremendous scope to grow. The physical set of books accounted for 5% of its global sales. But overall, the print media could not even garner 1% of its entire global revenue. Hence, the natural progression for the company. Interestingly, the online version of the encyclopedia, represents 15% of Britannica’s revenue. The other 85% is from institutional sales of education products: online learning tools, curriculum products etc. Everyone seems interested in online education nowadays. We have TV players, Telecom Companies even Video sharing sites. The Indian education market is set to cross US$ 70 Billion by this year alone. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

It works by having visitors input their age, then a timeline of photos appears with a description of said material, what it is currently being used for and what year it is predicted to finish. We found some interesting stuff! Like that oil reserves are scheduled to run out in 2046 and that Indium, the material used to make LCD screen on gadgets like iPads, will deplete by 2025! Oh yea, and Gold will be gone by 2032. Sorry in advance to all the ballers and high-rollers.
