New Delhi: BodhTree Consulting, a specialist in SOA Consulting & Web Services Integration, and Unified Council, which conducts National Level Science Talent Search Examination (NSTSE) across India and eight other countries, have teamed up to launch www.24x7guru.com, an online diagnostic and self-assessment tool for students of classes 3 to 10.
24x7guru.com combines Unified Council’s education content and BodhTree’s online diagnostic and assessment engine to help students study more efficiently, evaluate their progress in quasi real time and scale better grades in science and mathematics.
The focal point of 24x7guru.com is the accessibility of class and course specific information by which students can assess their learning and rate their progress everyday at any time convenient to them. As students study subjects from their school, they can come back and evaluate their learning proficiency by answering questions about those subjects. 24x7guru.com then scores those answers and demonstrates to students their strengths and weaknesses. By making 24x7guru.com a steady part of their study schedule, students can focus their attention on weak spots before they take an exam.
Says Sanjiv Gupta, CEO of BodhTree Consulting, ”The main objective of 24x7guru.com is to complement the efforts of schools, teachers and parents to empower students to become conceptually strong in academics by identifying their weaknesses and converting the same into strengths through clarity of problem solving concepts.”
24x7guru.com provides instant feedback on scoring, as well as diagnostic reports that can be used by students and their parents for evaluating the learning curve. Initially 24x7guru.com will offer student’s online self assessment services for CBSE based science and mathematics followed by state level and other national level course subjects over the next few weeks. 24x7guru.com is targeting 1 million subscribers by end of the academic year 2009 and hopes to add another million subscribers by 2010.
To extensively promote and build awareness for its class-wise range of products, 24x7guru.com will appoint 100,000 brand associates in the country, besides embarking on a direct marketing campaign. Access to 24x7guru.com will be subscription-based and will cover school syllabi in India, the Far East and the Gulf. For more information, visit www.24x7guru.com.
