The launch of Classpad marks the next level of innovation in terms of personalized pedagogy structure and newer applications which are designed to equip and empower teacher to teach better, and students to learn better.

Rohit Pande, a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, who previously launched Classteacher Learning Systems, an interactive classroom solutions company, has launched Classpad, a tablet computer that is expected to make education more acessible.

Classpad facilitates personalized and interactive learning in the classroom and makes education accessible to every student according to his/ her individual intelligence level and talent, a press note said. "Using the Classpad, teachers can effortlessly transfer class work to the students’ tablet, share their own content instantly and conduct tests/ assessments hassle free. Students can give their undivided attention to class lessons, attempt assessments and get immediate results to further enhance their learning."

Classpad has a touch screen with a 7 hour battery life, 1.3 Ghz processing speed and a built-in memory of 4 GB expandable upto 8 Gb.

”Our education system does not differentiate students according to the learning capabilities and teach them at the same level, but the software installed in Classpad tests students’ problem solving, creativity and application of language skills. It provides them with personalized teaching as per their learning capabilities. Equipped with artificial intelligence, Classpad can help to categorize students as fast learners, average learners and slow learners. Classpad can assist in reducing the monotony of repetitive sessions in the classroom. Teachers can now complete their syllabus within schedule and get considerable time to focus on slow learners," said Rohit Pande, CEO, Classteacher Learning Systems.
