Digital Transformation of
Learning from Classrooms to #Rooms
In 2017, few lecturers (7) from 3 reputed colleges, in Bengaluru, got together and created virtual rooms for science, commerce and arts stream. Goal is to mentor & guide students (across state) for board exams.
Every day 5 questions were posted in each room for which students scribbled answers on paper, clicked and posted back. These answers were evaluated by students themselves by up/down voting. It turned interactive with students asking questions by uploading snapshots & videos expecting lecturers to answer them. However it was other students who pitched in providing answers.
It became more interesting with post exam discussions, polls, quizzes & career choices. These rooms provided an opportunity for students to collaborate, compete and learn collectively beyond classroom using just a smart phone. In addition, a model evolved where 5000+ students were mentored by 7 lecturers.
