COACHING INSTITUTES AMIDST THE PANDEMIC AND BEYOND
To make the education and learning process unhindered in this Pandemic situation, We have introduced an online mode of delivery through live classes from our best and experienced faculty members with a vast teaching experience ranging between 15 to 20 years and who have habit of producing uber results. Vidya Mandir has gained prominence among IIT competitors by giving proper courses in more than 30 urban areas. With almost 48 top scorers through the proper course and 9 top scorers through a correspondence course in the JEE Advance, Vidya Mandir is certainly worth it for exam preparation. The content and knowledge shared are different and advanced as we will focus on quality of delivery for which Vidyamandir Classes is known for. Many of the edtech companies are having young college students for teaching and the quality of content is not abundant for our young aspirants neither they are able to produce or showcase their results. Hence, this online mode of education is going to open new avenues for both the learners as well as the Coaching institutes. Further, the various courses offered by the Coaching institutes , now through online mode , the webinars, test series etc undoubtedly prove that they are the “it for the longer race”. The occurrence of the system of online education and the approval of it by the higher authorities, would create newer opportunities for the Coaching institutes in future, since most of the learners would seek more of such guidance through the Coaching institutes…Hence, we can safely say that the future years would offer us a blended model of offline and online courses in the Coaching institutes and therefore would generate more facilities for them and more attention…Those who prefer to study through offline mode, after the Pandemic can get the same as well as those who can’t afford to spend time by physically attending , can avail the same learnings too…This intermingling of online and offline only gives credibility to the fact that the process of imparting education should go on despite all hindrances.
Thus, the future of Coaching industry in India will unveil a new path of learning and guidance, both through offline and online mode and hopefully, it will cater to the needs of each and every student, and will reach even the remotest part of our country.
