Question
"What can online education do that normal, traditional systems cannot?"
Mr P Gopalan, freelance journalist,
Parent of Kiran, Standard X,
Cochin
 
Answer

For teachers, it is the classroom environment itself, rather than their abilities and attitudes, which present the foremost difficulty. They cannot devote their full attention to each student individually. Instead, they must teach diverse students simultaneously. Brighter students can quickly grasp the lesson while slower students are still struggling to understand.

Teachers also suffer from the usual human stresses of sickness, accidents, psychological problems, boredom, and burnout. Just as these factors can reduce effectiveness in other professions, they can hinder teaching and result in poorer learning by students.

compassbox.com's purpose and mission is to provide a modern tool that supplements rather than substitutes, school learning. Our mission is to make knowledge more rational and meaningful so that it could be understood instead of mechanically memorized. Our role is to encourage young learners to inquire as scholars do, to develop the power to think.

There are several other advantages of learning through compassbox.com that stand out:

  1. Your child can learn anywhere, anytime, without having to travel further than the room where the computer is.
  2. He or she can repeat the lesson or exercise, or ask for explanations hundreds of times.
  3. He or she can learn at his or her own pace.
  4. He or she can learn in the comfort and security of his or her own home. He or she can study under the tutelage of some of the best qualified and experienced teachers, without paying exorbitant fees.
  5. Our personal, online tutors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  6. Your child, and you as parents, can interact with teachers, students and other parents from all over the country and even the world, and gain valuable insights. In other words, compassbox.com puts the power of cross-cultural internet communities right at your finger tips.
