Speaking at the report launch, Ragini Chaudhary, India CEO, Gray Matters Capital said, “At GMC Calibrator, we work for 6 months with companies across the Education-Employability spectrum who are trying to bring improved learning outcomes and employment opportunities using both offline solutions along with digital mediums and mobile devices. Our hypothesis was that if we could help them focus on just three things - improve the user engagement, help enhance monetization and ensure optimization of the performance, we could pave the way for more scale.” She added, “This report helps us get perspectives of entrepreneurs and users, so as to help us with insights to calibrate the EdTech solutions.”
Releasing the report on the culmination of the first cohort of the GMC Calibrator, Debleena Majumdar, Director -Research and Growth, Gray Matters Capital, said, “The GMC Calibrator was launched with an objective to promote ‘Self Learning to Self Earning’. Traditional viewpoint says that only the ones categorized as the self-motivated learners can benefit from mobile self learning. We believe, the ones categorized as ‘those who need a nudge’ above can also engage with mobile self learning to earning opportunities, given the right inputs and motivation. And that starts with behavioural understanding of users. This report encapsulates these learnings of the last six months.”
