Vawsum is a DIPP, GoI-recognised start-up that aims to revolutionize the scenario of education in India. It is a mobile application that makes learning awesome! Using Vawsum, different stakeholders of an institute (teachers, students, parents, alumni) can connect with each other.
Teachers put in a lot of effort for the great future of a child. Similarly, a parent’s foremost desire is to ensure his excellent education. However, the most important stakeholders of a child’s journey still depend on age-old modes of communication between themselves. This results in delayed and times lost communication.
Vawsum brings these stakeholders of an educational institution closer. Now a teacher can send media rich communication to the parents at the click of a button. Now a parent gets updates like classwork, homework, child specific feedback, report cards, fees updates, etc. on the go. Moreover, teachers can share freely available educational videos from YouTube or other sources with the children. Above all, Vawsum enables schools which cannot afford computers and smart-classes to provide world class technological amenities to the students.
We sell Vawsum to educational institutes serving all age groups from kindergartens to post-graduation. Tuition centres and coaching institutes also use the product.
