“Mera Test Bazaar”, India’s first online education and test prep marketplace was launched by MyTestBuddy on 1st march, 2014 where any teacher in any part of India would be able to create an online course in 8+ regional languages and students could study the same on any tech device.
Here students can study about almost any topic whether in English or in 8 different regional Indian languages and teachers could create a course or a class online related to any subject, take tests, conduct exams/quizzes, assess their grades and keep a track on the progress of the students. Plus they have imbibed gamification technology features in their platform to make the learning process much more fun and interactive for the students. This technology facilitates communication and understanding between the student-teacher communities.
“Essentially MyTestBuddy has tried to create a knowledge sharing marketplace integrated with an educational social learning platform where students can connect with new skills and passions to learn anything, anytime, anywhere and teachers/publishers or experts can make money online by sharing their expertise. And in certain cases depending on the teacher, the courses could be learned for FREE of cost.” – Kaizad Hansotia, CMO, MyTestBuddy
