It’s a strange scenario. Schools and colleges are shut, and teaching today is online. The teachers have adapted themselves to the new pedagogy, and students, too, are trying their best to assimilate knowledge through e-learning processes via apps, mobiles, and computers. Two Hyderabad-based companies are all set to be a part of this trend and have launched their own EdTech vertical. Suddenly, the EdTech platforms have become lucrative, and many software companies are venturing into the e-learning segment. Two city companies include Tutoroot and mPowerO.


mPowerO was initially SkillPro which was into providing vocational training and skilling opportunities for underprivileged youth, and the company founded in 2008 has revamped its e-skilling platform for enterprises – iShiksha – into mPowerO.Since May, the platform has focused on e-learning with equal emphasis on schools and teachers. Without disturbing the teaching pedagogy and content delivery of a school, mPowerO intends to provide anytime and anywhere access to students.


According to Jerold Chagas Periera, CEO, mPowerO, it is a software as a service (SaaS)-based solution which delivers mobile-first learning in partnership with Microsoft. While the students get the luxury of downloading the assignments and coursework anytime, anywhere, the teachers can assess students and schedule tests through the app itself.


Another company that was also a software firm has forayed into e-learning with its subsidiary called Tutoroot Technologies. The firm has developed an in-house ‘Learn’ personalized platform that provides access to live interactive classes, adaptive assessments, live simulations, subject demo videos, and courseware for students preparing for IIT-JEE, NEET, CBSE, ICSE, IGCSE & IB curriculum. The firm also has plans to enter the international markets by the end of 2021.


Apart from providing a platform for students, the firm is offering a free online certification program on virtual teaching for teachers. To this end, it has partnered with Schools for India Trust and, with content support from CVIAC Technologies, shares M Satyendra, MD, Athena Global Technologies, and Tutoroot.
