Pac Soft develops e-learning software
Bangalore , Oct. 15
A CONCEPT called Lyceum aims at bridging the gap among students, teachers, parents and institutions and enhancing the quality of formal education.
Lyceum will be supported by Pac Soft Solutions Ltd, Microsoft, Intel, and Citibank.
The software solution for the concept was developed by Pac Soft.
Educational sector has to compete with key challenges such as bridging the gap with global trends in learning and reducing the strain on educationalists in terms of time spent on trivial yet mission-critical administrative tasks to enhance quality of education.
It has to narrow the gap between the stakeholders - student and the institution, parent and the teacher, knowledge and the learner, community and the institution and, technology and its potential.
This posed a challenge in managing multiple institutions effectively.
Lyceum, already adopted by many schools in the country, would address these problems, said the Managing Director of Pac Soft Solutions, Mr Ali Sait.
Lyceum was built to enhance the sources and scope of learning for students, educating teachers, create an open effective system for parent-teacher-student interaction and optimise an institution's administrative procedures through a tailor-made ERP solution, Connected Learning Module and e-governance suite.
It enables anytime, anyplace access to learning for students, educators and parents through a dynamic collaborative learning environment created for the schools, campuses, homes, libraries, businesses to access global resources.
Mr Ranjivjit Singh, Director - Business and Marketing Organisation, Microsoft Corporation India Private Ltd, said: "Lyceum on .NET, developed by Pac Soft, which is a great example of how Microsoft technology can be successfully integrated into the existing education modules to provide a complete learning experience to students, teachers and parents - ultimately ushering in a connected learning environment."
With features such as connected learning community (which enables students & teachers across the world to interact and share knowledge with other students and teachers seamlessly and helps parents stay in touch with their kid's progress by logging in to www.my-lyceum.net), Educational ERP (which allows an educator to focus on teaching by automating all mission-critical administrative tasks) and e-governance (which helps managements stay in real-time touch with day-to-day developments in all educational institutions under its control), Lyceum would help institutions enhance their levels of educational excellence.
