DataWind, TES India tie up to offer free educational resources

DataWind has teamed up with TES India, an online community for teachers, to provide a library of ready-to-use teaching material to its end users. DataWind is targeting teachers’ community via this strategic partnership. Teachers and institutions can choose to teach their students absolutely free of cost by using this library. They can also teach their students an international syllabus, which can help them keep in sync with global standards.

According to the strategic partnership, an application will be developed that will feature learning materials available for several courses like Bachelor of Arts, B.Com, B. Ed, general awareness, entire CBSE content, educational presentations, discussion on social topics and many more. The app can be used to learn and teach Sanskrit online.

Teachers can use the app to find employment for themselves while students can locate a great career guide for themselves.

Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO & President, Datawind said: “We aim to bring a PC Tablet for every student in India, but the hardware itself is not enough to serve the purpose of empowerment. This partnership will allow Datawind users to access high quality, interactive and engaging educational content for free. Also this partnership will strengthen teacher’s community so that they can deliver quality education which is a need of the hour by Young India.”

“We are delighted to be working with Datawind. We are committed to driving excellence in the education sector, and this partnership will help teachers to access the very best classroom resources – lesson plans, assessments, worksheets, presentations and more”, said Sachin Kapoor, General Manager, TES India.

“There is a selection of the most popular lesson plans covering math, English, geography, history, science, physical and health education and expressive arts. You can download as many of these lesson plans as you like for free - all you have to do is join TES India. Registration is free and takes less than a minute,” added Mr. Kapoor.

DataWind has entered into similar strategic alliance with various companies in the past. Last year, DataWind tied up with the Indian Express Group to bring its users the latest news and analysis on the go. For cricket enthusiasts, the company teamed up with cricket technology company CricHQ to pre-install CricHQ app on all their UbiSlate tablets.
