HomeSkul, a Kerala-based EduTech startup, has launched the first home-grown after-school e-learning app, which offers students a personalised learning experience powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR). At an event in Kochi, HomeSkul brand ambassador and popular Malayalam actor Prithviraj introduced the app. The app has several unique features and is jam-packed with high-quality content for CBSE and state board students, prepared by experienced faculty and subject experts. Apart from recorded classes, HomeSkul also offers live classes via a two-way interactive smart classroom platform that employs augmented reality.

HomeSkul’s assisted learning feature makes it simple to clear up doubts and questions during and after live sessions. The app also includes an extensive e-library of study materials covering all of the topics covered, and it is the first in the segment to include chapter-by-chapter revision videos to assist students with last-minute exam preparation. The app’s study materials repository also includes chapter-by-chapter question answers for all NCERT textbooks.

Jaganthan Ram, the founder and CEO of HomeSkul, commented on the app’s launch, saying, “The key factors that distinguish HomeSkul are innovation in quality content, pedagogical approach, and affordability. Subject experts with more than a decade of teaching experience, rather than presenters, lead the classes. We provide rich content that includes concept development and reinforcement using real-life examples. HomeSkul’s unique features include short notes, mind maps for exam preparation, interactive video classes that ensure students’ attention in class, and chapter-by-chapter revision videos.”

The app, which is currently available in English and Malayalam, will soon be expanded to include Hindi for students across the country. HomeSkul also intends to offer classes in a wider range of regional languages. HomeSkul caters to CBSE students from the eighth to the twelfth grades. Apart from after-school tutoring, HomeSkul also offers competitive exam preparation classes such as NEET and JEE.

HomeSkul will also add new features to track the health, portability, and accessibility of HomeSkul content across a variety of devices, including Smart TVs and wearables.
