Schoolguru is India’s premier technology-led specialized academic services organization. They partner with Indian Universities to provide premium Online and Virtual courses for their students. They firmly believe that the online audiovisual medium has the potential to bring in on-demand high-quality education taught by the top educators from across the world at the doorsteps of the student.
India, owing to its huge potential knowledge capital, has the ability to be one of the world’s leading economies. The ever-growing Indian youth population has the potential to feed into the growing demand-supply gap of skilled manpower across the world. The Indian republic has shown tremendous promise and maturity in the past when a few bureaucrats of the west almost labeled India as an emerging threat to their local economies.
However, the manifestation of this potential solely depends on their ability to train Their youth largely residing in the rural fold of the country. The various initiatives of the Indian government (like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan) are a testimony to the same. However, to make them employable beyond basic literacy skills, the higher education infrastructure of the country needs a lot of overhauling.
