How do Online Live classes work?

The process of conducting/attending live classes is simple all you need is a laptop, good quality webcam, internet, and software on which you can conduct live classes. Once all of this is in place the teacher can schedule a class and invite students to be part of it at mutually convenient times.

Once the faculty starts a class the teacher can teach in a similar fashion as he teaches offline. With tools like screen sharing, whiteboard, and live chats the experience of teaching and learning via live class is as immersive and sometimes even better than an offline classroom experience.

 Why do Live classes and e-learning have the potential to disrupt traditional coaching classes?

  • Demand and Supply Gap of good quality teachers

India has around 30 crore students involved in one or other learning activity and there is a shortage of around 2 million teachers. This indicates a clear demand and supply gap which online live classes can mitigate effectively.

Therefore, teachers who have recognized this gap are trying to leverage this largely untapped market by conducting Live classes to reach a maximum number of students. On the other hand, many students realize that are very less number of good quality teachers available and therefore they look for other learning avenues like live online classes /online tutoring where they can find good quality teachers and study material.

  • Interactive Online learning

Live classes are the best bet for E-learning because Live classes are interactive. Learning is more effective when the involvement of the students is maximum so although recorded video lectures are a good way to revise concepts and topics, learning actually happens when there is an interaction between the teacher and the student. Also with Live classes, there is an opportunity for online group discussions which further promotes the involvement of the students in the learning process

  • Plug and Play

Technology-wise Live classes are very easy to conduct. A teacher can use specific software and with the help of a laptop and an active internet connection at a click of a button a teacher can start teaching Live and online through online teaching platforms. This will be a big enabler to boost the growth of Live interactive online classes. Few teachers also try you-tube for streaming live classes but it lacks an organized, dedicated, and immersive learning experience.

  • Rising Internet and Smartphone Penetration and Usage

India is increasing at a fast pace India’s internet user base increased by 49% in 2015.65% of the internet traffic comes from mobile phones. Smartphone users in India are estimated to grow at a CAGR of 38% in the next 4 years.

As the penetration of the internet improves and the advent of 5g will provide a big boost in improving the experience of online tutoring which has the potential to disrupt the home tutoring business as these tutors will shift to technology and provide tuition live and online to students from their own locations.

Also, there is huge growth in the increase of time spent on smartphones by students. They spend at least 30 minutes of their day on smartphones.

  •  Safe and Comfortable way of Learning

Online learning and Live classes, in particular, give the option to choose their tutors and class schedules that work for them, and more importantly, they can learn from the comfort of their homes. 

Business Opportunity

Largely Untapped Market

In India, only 7 cr students out of the 30 cr students go to coaching institutes. This indicates that a big educational market is untapped which can be tapped only with the help of technology specifically through e-learning and live classes.

Looking at the Rising Internet and Smartphone Penetration and Usage teachers and tutors would want to cash on the huge demand-supply gap of good quality teachers by providing their services online. With the advent of 5g and better eLearning platforms, it will be easier than ever to go teach and learn online.

Low Entry Barrier

As the cost to start a live class or online tutoring business is low. With the Right technological support a confident tutor will be easily able to enter and cater to this market.

Live class Business is still in the Nascent Stage

The advantage to Early Adopters
