Film your elevator pitch.
What specific problem are you solving?
Covid-19 acted as a catalyst and has accelerated growth across many industries in India, education being one of them for sure. Although many schools have adopted online learning, but that alone is not sufficient. The majority of K-12 schools in India still use paper instead of digital technologies. Educators still spend the majority of their time preparing reports and performing routine administrative activities. According to studies, up to 40% of educators have complained about feeling overburdened and stressed due to their administrative tasks.
Moreover, it's difficult for teachers to devise personalized learning strategies and effective intervention plans for students struggling in classrooms without accurate anecdotes and insights. According to studies, students up to 4% in metropolitan areas and up to 29% in rural regions drop out of school before completing their education. And the majority of the time, the teacher is unaware of the cause for their absence.
Lastly, Covid-19 threatens to derail the education of at least 24 million students worldwide. So, staying connected and retaining students in schools is now a bigger challenge than before. Thus, we need an automated/user-friendly platform that connects students, teachers, and parents to create engaging classroom communities while also facilitating data-driven decision-making.
What is your solution?
Students, teachers, and administrators leave an endless trail of data throughout their time at institution. The use of large datasets to guide decisions is important for the world of education to take advantage of the technological trends driving economic and social change.
IntelliED connects teachers, students, and parents to create exciting classroom communities that enhance learning and resource sharing to support students. IntelliED allows teachers to acquire a holistic view of students' participation across numerous activities using feedback from sources, including the classroom, common and benchmark examinations, third-party assessments, attendance, behavior, conduct, and so on.
Apart from this, keep track of students' mental health with our assessments based on clinical standards, and ensure that school environments are safe, supportive, and equitable with our in-built Social-Emotional-Learning surveys. Spend less time reporting and more time teaching with IntelliED, as the advanced analytical architecture enables educators to identify efficiencies through reports that reveal patterns and translate data into actionable insights.
Moreover, IntelliED enables teachers to measure, monitor, and respond in real-time to all student-related insights to make effective & timely interventions. Finally, IntelliED strives to improve student-teacher and parent-teacher relationships, as well as parental participation in their children's education.
Who does your solution serve, and in what ways will the solution impact their lives?
IntelliED strives to help students from all walks of life, including students whose academics have been disrupted by Covid-19, students who are lagging academically, and students who are having a mental health issue but are unable to articulate it for a variety of reasons.
Apart from gathering student data from multiple sources, we conduct surveys
with students to understand more about how they feel in the classroom, their
perception about their learning environment, where they believe they are
lacking, and any specific areas in which they require assistance. Results from
these Social-Emotional Learning surveys, when combined with analytics &
AI-based insights gathered from exam scores, assignment scores, extracurricular involvement, and other sources, assist teachers in developing personalized learning strategies and effective intervention techniques.
Our automated, fast, and easy system will undoubtedly relieve teachers of the time-consuming task of manually entering data and analyzing reports. As a result, educators will get more time which can invest in other beneficial
activities. Furthermore, our monthly progress reports and daily relevant
notifications will keep parents informed about their child's progress and other
vital information. Our platform intends to build a virtual ecosystem in which instructors, mentors, advisors, and parents can collaborate to develop programs that are tailored to their students' needs

Most of the organizations are already travelling towards a future where strategies and decisions are data-driven by default. Fortunately, Data Analytics creates new opportunities to improve the education process too by helping teachers and learners make smarter decisions earlier in the learning progression. There's no reason to expect a recession, and staying ahead of the industry's volatility necessitates data-driven judgments.

Our automated data-driven approach for student insights, light-weight multilingual communication platform, and easy-to-use live dashboards will help achieve the mentioned goals.

Educators may engage with students and parents through our communication section, sharing insights and progress reports without having to worry about language barriers as our conversion API can translate messages into regional languages. This allows you to form better student-teacher and parent-teacher relationships that positively impact a child’s education.
Our light weight web login adapts to poor internet conditions by displaying a reduced version of the dashboard, allowing it to be utilized in regions where the internet is unavailable or slow.
