Education start-up Learnpedia uses 42Gears product for fun-filled learning
BENGALURU, India - Feb. 5, 2016 - Learnpedia, an edu-tech company in Hyderabad promises to make learning a fun and fascinating experience for students preparing to write various competitive exams. Its flagship product ScoreJEE is already redefining preparation for IIT-JEE (Indian Institutes of Technology Joint Entrance Examination). Learnpedia is promoted by seasoned academicians with deep rooted understanding of the test-prep industry.
Learnpedia distributes tablets to students so that they can easily access its unique digital learning solution platform to help them prepare for competitive examinations like IIT-JEE in the form of videos, easy to comprehend text and animations.
Students having easy access to tablets were able to use them for non-academic purposes such as playing games and downloading irrelevant apps. Misuse of tablets also contributed to battery drainage, high data usage, corrupted SD cards and worse, posed a serious threat to data and network security. Learnpedia wanted an application that ensuredstudents accessed only learning materials and supporting educational apps on the tablets.
Learnpedia started evaluating many kiosk mode applications. It chose SureLock because of its highly customizable user interface and comprehensive advance lockdown features. SureLock not only enabled Learnpedia to lock the devices in an efficient and manageable way but at the same time, configuration and deployment of large numbers of devices became very easy.
“SureLock not only minimizes student distraction with restricted applications, but also reduces time and cost involved with quick and easy configuration. SureLock prevent users from playing games, browsing or installing unapproved applications”, says Kaushik Sindhu, Senior Manager, Product Engineering, 42Gears Mobility Systems.
Learnpedia extensively explored various features of SureLock and were happy to find that the product covered features like mass deployment of devices and accessible device settings.
“We had an amazing experience with 42Gears. We tried various other tools before we approached 42Gears. But SureLock's locking mechanism was good and user-friendly. The best part with 42Gears in comparison to any of the competitors is they have an amazing support team and strategically support what they provide.”Tharun Akula, IT Head, Learnpedia
