Its mission involves strategic use of technology to tackle the educational challenges that a massive population like India’s faces.
Making education accessible for all
Once digitisation enabled people from various parts of the country to access the internet, a lot of students had the chance to get their hands on content that was unavailable to them earlier.
However, these students were looking to consume content in their own vernacular language.
Doubtnut not only gauged that the majority of apps are focusing on imparting lessons in English, but also decided to create content in conversational Hindi, eventually diving into various languages such as Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati and more. Today, lakhs of students get the best quality video solutions, classes, notes, quizzes and tests prepared and delivered by India’s top teachers.
