By 2015 we will have 80 million (8 crore) unfilled jobs. Reason? Lack of skilled workforce. This is a BIG problem! Email not displaying correctly?

By 2015 there will be 80 million (8 crore) jobs in India which cannot be filled due to lack of skilled manpower. And the situation is more or less the same all across the globe – whether it is america, brazil, african countries, or even china, shortage of skilled manpower is a critical problem.

 

Skilled manpower can be developed using excellent education system. However, our education systems are also failing. Consider Engineering failure rates across dozens of universities. Average of 60% of first year Engineering students fail in at least one subject. In tough subjects the percentage is as high as 75% failure.

 

This is a BIG problem. You can watch online video (CLICK HERE).

 

To understand this problem, Cognifront decided to visit the field. We started interviewing a lot of teachers and students. We met about 2800 teachers! They told us 40 challenges they face everyday.

 

  • Syllabus cannot be completed in the given time

  • Basics of students are not clear. It is demotivating for teachers. They also cannot decide the level from which they should start their lectures

  • Teaching the same subject semester after semester become routine and boring for teachers

  • Students fail despite of efforts from teachers

  • Physical fatigue and stress due to vocal activity

 

There are 36 more problems reported by these 2800 teachers. They are available on Cognifront.com website for free download.

We also started interviewing students. These learners have 8 types of biases. We conducted their tests to analyze their biases. We did this in the batches of 100 students at a time. Results? Over 90% students have “Visual” bias. Means that they require information to be presented to them in visual manner – otherwise they may not understand the lectures clearly. Over 88% students had “Active” bias means that they must interact or discuss with someone in order to understand better. And over 84% students had “Sequential” bias means that content must be delivered to them in step-by-step manner so that they learn effectively.

Products for Teachers are used by Teachers during their lectures. We have specific lecture plans, teachers can edit these lectures, theory animations, animated solved examples, step-by-step solved examples, applications, interactive modules. Teachers can plan their lectures using Cognifront teaching tool software. You can download and experience our tools (CLICK HERE).

 

Products for students can be used for studying at home. Students can use Cognifront software on their laptops, or phones, or tablets. Several colleges install Cognifront software on LAN i.e. local area network in their college laboratories and students use these tools to revise content before and after the lectures, before their unit exams, and during their free time.

 

300 organizations use Cognifront software. Our esteemed clients include IITs i.e. Indian Institute of Technology. IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, IIT Gandhinagar, IIT Patna. National Institute of Technology NIT Tiruchirappalli, NIT Surat, NIT Surathkal in Karnataka. Jadavpur University, Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University, around 20 Government Industrial Training Institutes (ITI) and 150 Engineering Colleges and 90 Polytechnic Colleges. Abroad University of Mauritius, Georgia Tech University in USA, UHI Millennium Institute in Scotland, Furniture Training Institute in Ireland, and University of Western Australia use Cognifront software.

 

It is an endorsement of high quality of Cognifront software. Today 3,00,000 students take benefit from Cognifront software worldwide each single day and more than 3000 teachers use Cognifront software every day.

 

So many users from varied geographies approached us. This made us address the variable curriculum issue early. Cognifront maintains a constantly updated database of Universities. We analyze curriculum from all universities in our database. This curriculum is converted into a universal format developed by Cognifront. Then our animations, and tools repository is mapped against curriculum of every university. This results in approximately 90% completeness of the curriculum mapping across all universities. Remaining 10% gap we fill free of cost against written purchase order from respective customers. Newton’s law of motion remains Newton’s law of motion whether you teach in India or USA or Maharashtra or Gujarat or Tamil Nadu. So syllabus mapping challenges has been solved by Cognifront tools. Software being editable, teachers change the sequence according to their teaching styles, syllabus, and needs.

 

Here is what Cognifront customers have to say.

 

“AVL tree animation is very well done” says Dr.Horowitz USA

Thanks everyone for their participation and Great job by the team!

We had tremendous response from Pune University affiliated colleges – K. K. Wagh College of Engineering (KKWCoE), N.D.M.V.P. CoE (NDMVP), Yeola CoE, Sandip Foundation, Brahma Valley, MET Bhujbal Knowledge City (Mumbai Educational Trust).

Getting Interactive!

Students learn at their best when they can interact with the instructional material. So we thought we could change the world of Engineering Graphics and drawing by providing more and more interactivity.

And you know what we were able to get some stunning results. We bounced this off several professors and Chairman of University Board of Studies. Leading experts across India, are appreciative of this concept!

You can try some online samples here -

And do let us know how do you find our creation and any suggestions you may have.

Guru Purnima Sanskrit Shloka

Indian culture treats Today’s day to celebrate Gurus. People today express their respect and love for their Gurus – Teachers, Parents, Professors, Mentors. Since Cognifront develops Educational Multimedia, it is one of our favorite days.

You can read more about Guru Purnima here.

We are very happy to announce a new product for Engineering Graphics & Drawing. Kindly check our product page for more information. We believe that this product will make a difference for millions of students who study Engineering Graphics around the world. 40% of male students and 20% of female students face difficulties with this subject since they lack Visualization skills required for this subject.

 

Cognifront team has our best to contribute and disseminate knowledge of this subject through this World Class product on Engineering Drawing.
