The private companies in India have joined together to form India EdTech Consortium. It was formed under the guidance of Internet Mobile Association of India. It was launched after Government of India announced that it is to launch as policy to regulate the edtech sector, that is education and technology sector.
What is Edtech?
EdTech is Education and Technology. Before COVID-19, the education and technology sector were performing normally. They were growing steadily. The COVID induced lock down shut schools and colleges. Suddenly modern choice, that is, remote learning became the only alternative. Four out of every six edtech startup have succeeded in their respective field during this phase. And these startups are valued at 1 billion USD!
Who are forming the Consortium?
It is mostly formed by the 1 billion USD companies. This includes Unacademy, BYJU’s, upGrad, Lead School and Vedantu. These 1 billion USD companies are generally referred to as Unicorns. Technically unicorns are defined as those companies whose annual turnover is more than one billion USD.
What are the complaints against edtech companies?
People are enrolling in courses without studying about the courses completely. The edtech companies are not providing clear details about the courses. This includes subjects included, fee structure, certificate, etc. Some have even signed up for loans. Some of the edtech companies are forcing parents to sign for the auto debit feature.
