New York, March 9 (IANS) An Indian-American pioneer in online tutoring believes that with its best talent and technology India can create educational material for the rest of the world, raising standards and creating jobs.
Harry Aurora, CEO of iTutor Inc, will present his ideas on the future of online education at a panel discussion Sunday on 'Developing India's Silicon Valley' at the Harvard India Conference presented by the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School in Boston.
Prof. Sunil Gupta, Professor of Business Administration and Head of the Marketing Department, Harvard Business School will moderate the panel discussion at the March 9-10 conference on the theme of 'India vs India:
Local Strength or Global Growth'.
"India can boast the best talent and technology and can create educational material for the rest of the world, raising standards and creating jobs," said New York based Aurora said.
"A prestigious platform like Harvard will spread the news all over and create awareness about the importance of improving academics of every individual," he said.
India-born Aurora last month merged the ETutor Inc that he founded with iTutor Inc, thus combining iTutor's decade of online tutoring experience with the premier online interactive whiteboard technology of TheETutor.com.
"The new iTutor.com will shape history and play a pivotal role in the future framework of distance learning," he said.
"With the right tools and experience iTutor.com will help students from anywhere in the world increase their grades, test scores, and spring them into the next phase of the educational experience, all while preparing them for the job market of the future," Aurora said.
At the new iTutor.com, students can sign-up for free using the 'join now' form on the company's homepage. After which students are immersed in an online resource library that provides complete academic support in all subjects taught in a traditional K-12 classroom.
From the students' user interface they have the ability to schedule live tutoring sessions with certified and highly experienced educators and or playback their pre-recorded tutoring sessions for continued support.
