EVidyaloka Trust

Program Description

eVidyaloka, a not-for-profit social enterprise with a zeal to enable quality education to children in Rural government schools to address the acute teacher shortage. In our 9 years of existence, we have graduated from 1 School in Thenur to 233+ schools spread across 10 states with 1 million child learning hours, close to 18,000 children taught by 1,700+ volunteers spread in 180+ cities across the globe, throughout the year.

eVidyaloka connects passionate volunteer teachers from across the globe to rural government school students in India, by leveraging technology. This addresses the twin problem - shortage of teachers and poor quality of teaching - in rural India. The subjects to be taught are English, Mathematics, Science to grades 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th. Volunteers virtually engage with the children and teach topics and concepts, appropriate to the student’s grade. They extensively use online teaching resources, including digitized textbooks that are provided to them. They are also offered constant support from an online eVidyaloka Coordinator at the back end.

eVidyaloka brings a unique program by leveraging the technology to effectively reach & educate rural children by Virtual Teaching.

 

VIRTUAL TEACHING— “TEACH RURAL INDIA ONLINE”

As one of the causes for online volunteering, our vision is - to create a knowledgeable & empowered rural India through quality education. We try to address the acute shortage of quality teachers in rural India by connecting high quality teaching volunteers of from across the world, with the remote & rural Villages across India; using Digital Classroom technology. The students of 5th -8th grade is facilitated by the program.

The operating model of eVidyaloka is simple. We install a TV, computer, UPS (uninterrupted power supply system) and a camera (with a powerful mic) in a government school (the Digital Classroom). We tie-up with a local NGO to ensure we get local support. We then get volunteers from across the world to teach remotely using our technology platform Jupiter and through Skype. Volunteer teachers log into Jupiter (program management portal), download content and teach remotely. They can also manage their classroom using this platform. 

For a volunteer to teach: -

  • They should have passion to teach
  • Can commit 2hrs/week for 3-4 months
  • Should have laptop/Desktop
  • Should be fluent in any 1 Regional Lang (Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada)

This model is in line with the Digital India Initiative for Education - reaching remote villages through technology. It is also in line with the call given by our Prime Minister for volunteering an hour every week to teach children in remote villages. We have been engaged in this since 2011.

We request your support to move forward in our journey and to realize our vision. You may support us for the cause of nation-building through eVidyaloka.
