Bengaluru: Bengaluru-based GATE Coaching Institute, THE GATE ACADEMY, had taken an initiative around a month ago.
It had made its video lectures and other digital contents available to GATE aspirants and second, fourth & sixth semester students, completely free. The idea was to help students learn and not miss the coaching in the lockdown situation.
"We have received tremendous response for this initiative from across India, especially tier-2 and 3 towns. Out of more than 1 lakh course registrations, only 8 per cent is from the top four metro cities and the rest 92 per cent are from the rest of India. This shows the hunger for good learning content in Post Graduate Segment that can be consumed on digital platforms such as TGA app or browser-based Learning Management Systems", said Ritesh Raushan, Institute's Director. This initiative, according to him has gone viral.
Highest amount of interest was shown by students from Mechanical Branch (30 per cent) followed by Civil (25 per cent), Electrical (17 per cent), Computer Science (13 per cent), Electronics (13 per cent) and rest from other streams of engineering.
"Encouraged by the interest shown by the students, THE GATE ACADEMY, Bengaluru, has further launched few more initiatives, to help engineering students", said Ritesh Raushan.
"For our registered classroom students, we had started providing online live lectures, both in Hindi and English, to maintain continuity of their studies and complete syllabus on time. However, we know that not all GATE coaching institutes are technically equipped to do so, hence we have extended the same service for free of cost to all the GATE aspirants, even who had enrolled with other institutes for a classroom course. The idea is, not to let their preparation suffer during the lockdown. Now, even students from other coaching institutes can continue their studies with our live online lectures, completely free of cost", he added.
"In the event of a crisis, it's the duty of every component of society to do its bit to help each other. It is a small step in that direction. And after all, a friend in need is a friend indeed. We want engineering students and GATE aspirants to remember us as friends and partners in their success", said Ritesh Raushan when probed as to what is the benefit that THE GATE ACADEMY, Bengaluru is deriving from all these initiatives.
