From traditional Gurukul to multi-layered system, Indian has come a long way in the education sector. However, our education system is highly criticized for being exam oriented rather than learning oriented.
Some of the drawbacks in our current education system are:
- Teacher-student ratio
- Lack of Quality Content
New technologies, science breakthroughs have been emerging significantly. However, syllabus of our graduation years has not been able to prepare the students for any such challenges.
- Exam Oriented Teaching
Due to lack of time and pressure of completing the syllabus, and to beat the competition, colleges are more concentrated in teaching students based on marks to achieve.
- Collaboration between teachers and students
As most of the time during a class is spend to either teach the concepts or to provide study material, it is difficult for teachers to analyze whether students has actually understood the concept. And moreover, some students can be shy to ask their doubts in front of an entire classroom. So, collaboration between teacher and student is important to improve the education quality.
On an average, teacher is assigned for a classroom of 50 – 60 students. More the number of students, heavy will the burden on teacher. Over-burdened teachers don’t have enough time for researching and analyzing performance of each student and to encourage them accordingly.
In order to fill in such gaps, many startups and even well-established companies have started creating or funding technologies based on education improvement.
With an increase in smart phones, internet access and digital mediums, students have started these platforms to gain more knowledge. Even parents have started encouraging their kids to use such tools for quality education.
One such amazing tool is LMS (Learning management system).

It is a software application that helps universities in create courses, share study materials and monitor student performance. It is often referred as an online classroom in-conjunction with traditional classroom.
