TELE-EDUCATION PLATFORM

TELE-EDUCATION
Tele-Education is Gumbi’s comprehensive offering to solve the challenges
in present-day education. It turns classrooms into multi-way interactive
learning hubs. There are no geographical barriers for Tele-Education.
An affordable solution when taken on a mass scale, Tele-Education has
already impacted more than a million student lives!

HOW TELE-EDUCATION IS TRANSFORMATIVE?

Tele-Education is aimed at changing the
way India is educated by overcoming
the obstacles of reach, affordability and
quality.
Tele-Education focuses on helping
underprivileged students – rural, urban poor and
socially backward - in their endeavour to improve
their knowledge and achieve clarity on concepts
through quality education.

Imagine this: There is a very good
English teacher in Mumbai and there
are needy students in Jharkhand.
Under normal circumstances,
nothing would have come out of this
situation because of the distances
involved. However, through TeleEducation, this teacher can impact
the lives of those students living
far away. The residence of the
teacher or student no longer matters
because Tele-Education can project
a teacher into any remotely located
classroom in the world and enable
excellent learning.

Our satellite model supports both IP and
DVB Transmission. In India, as current
EDUSAT and SATCOM networks are built
on these technologies, no modifications
are required to use the satellite model on
those networks.

Existing studios shall be upgraded if required
and deployed for transmission of lessons;
where studios are unavailable, new facilities
can be setup at State headquarters.

LIVE classes are delivered from a studio at State
HQ/ Education hub.

Key benefits
• Developed content
can be recorded
for deferred use.
• Acts as additional
communication
channel for official
purposes.

SKILL DEVELOPMENT
In India, a large number of young people, especially from semi-urban
and rural areas are not equipped to compete for formal employment as
they have very few opportunities for acquiring new skills.

How it is transformative...
Vocational skills are essential for earning a steady and gainful employment.
However, experts with excellent mentoring skills are located mainly in the cities
hence rural and semi-urban learners are at a great disadvantage. Due to the lack
of instructors and a high coaching fee, very few aspirants can actually access an
ideal vocational training in the countryside.
Our Skill Development program is designed to develop human resource capacities
in India to create a fully employable, responsible and independent workforce in
various sectors.

industry experts, teaching through
