Rohit Pande, a graduate from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, is launching his budget tablet Classpad
Classpad, touted to be a competition for Aakash, the world’s cheapest tablet, is conceptualised to customise education in a way that every student can be reached and participate in the process of learning.
The use of Classpads can make the teachers transfer class works to the students’ tablet, share their own content instantly at ease and conduct tests. Moreover, the students can also get into the groove by attempting to answer the queries and thus make the two-way process of learning.
Considered to be the developed version of the Aakash tablet, the Classpad has features such as touch screen, better battery life, 1.3 Ghz processing speed and a built-in memory of 4 Gb, which can also be expandable to 8 Gb. The device is also equipped with artificial intelligence and is built on the Android platform.
Its developer, the Classteacher Learning Systems of which Pande is the CEO, plans to take the device to the market through two business routes, the Trolley model and ‘one tablet per child’ (OTPC) model.
In the Trolley model, the device can be used on a shared manner by paying Rs 100 per child, whereas in ‘one tablet per child’ (OTPC) model, the parents have to pay for the device. It is available for students of Class 3 to 12th
