Online PR News – 09-January-2011 – – Bangalore-based ClearConcepts has volunteered to set up Moodle online platform for providing education to underprivileged children by teaming up with Sujaya Foundation, a Mumbai-based NGO. ClearConcepts is a Bangalore-based Education Services organization, which provides live and interactive online coaching for IIT, AIEEE and BITSAT entrance preparations.
“We regularly use online systems for our classes. Our students love the fact that they can learn from the comfort of home. At the same time, we, as teachers, are convinced that through the use of audio-visual elements available in online platform, we can teach more effectively and students also learn better. When we learnt about Sujaya’s work, we thought that the school children will also enjoy learning topics like English and Math if they are explained using audio files, videos and quizzes. We are glad to see that Sujaya Foundation is very effectively using the Moodle online platform which we have set up for them”, said Sanjay Mansabdar, Chief Executive Officer at ClearConcepts Education Services.
Sujaya Foundation works with underprivileged children from Municipal Schools and State Funded Private Schools and has three of their own centers. The online programme for English teaching runs in 3 places for students from Class V to VII. Currently more than 60 students are undergoing this programme. There are plans to expand this to all schools and centers in the near future.
Sujaya Foundation has found that with the use of Moodle online platform, it has become easy to organise and build the teaching material. The teachers are also able to very easily use all types of material such as audio, quizzes and tests through a single platform to help the students learn better and faster.

About Sujaya Foundation
Sujaya Foundation, established in 2002, is registered under the Mumbai Public Trust Act, 1950. The aim of the Foundation is to provide education to the under-privileged by incorporating the best pedagogical practices at an Elementary as well as an Advanced Level. The Foundation attempts to bridge the gap for its students between education and employment.
In India, English is the language of jobs and a secure future. However millions of young people are deprived of this due to lack of access to quality language skills in English. This automatically limits their opportunities in the labour market besides rendering them socially diffident and excluded.
One of the objectives of Sujaya is to actively intervene through formal and non-formal educational activities to not only significantly improve the linguistic competence of bright, hardworking students, but also open up their future. Otherwise they are trapped in an education system which does not teach English with a view to develop oral skills.
The foundation is also committed to try to helping them secure a job.
