The Coronavirus pandemic, has necessitated millions of schools and universities across the country to observe a precautionary shutdown. Over 1.8 million school going students are home-bound in the country. To bridge the learning gap during this time, Geneo, an interactive digital platform by Schoolnet India Limited, has announced free live classes by Geneo Mentors for students of Class 6 to 10 on its learning platform. Under the social initiative #LearningNeverStops, Geneo is offering live classes for Maths, Science and English, based on the first term syllabus of the new academic year of CBSE schools and those schools following the NCERT textbooks.
#LearningNeverStops has been launched following the advisory for schools to remain closed to safeguard the health of students. To ensure learning continues seamlessly at home, Geneo mentors will conduct topic-wise classes based on the school curriculum. Sessions will include access to learning videos and exploriments on the Geneo platform to achieve concept clarity. Mentor Support will eliminate doubts and assessments will also be recommended to prepare students for academic evaluation. Post the live classes, the recorded sessions will be made available on Geneo Youtube channel for enabling easy access to everyone.
