During the panel discussion, Pallavi Puri, Chief Content and Commercial Officer Tata Sky said, “The pandemic impacted students the most amongst other things, their education was affected for the worse. To bridge this gap and make education reach the last mile aspirant, Tata Sky introduced Tata Sky NEET and JEE prep services to address the 3 major concerns that had a great impact on the students for the longest time- Accessibility of good quality teachers, Availability of such platforms/mediums and the most crucial factor – Affordability within a family-friendly budget.”

That is the kind of opportunity we are looking to tap into, where quality and affordable education will be available 24×7 as per the convenience of the students on the big screen.”
Talking about Vedantu’s vision of distribution of educational content through television, Arvind Singhal Chief Operating Officer, Vedantu said, “This is a very strategic partnership with Tata Sky, where the purpose of both the organization is to provide high-quality learning to all aspirants. As a brand, we are going the extra mile to make quality education accessible and affordable #HarGharVedantu. In small towns and villages, there are students who have little or no access to high-quality learning as well as a shortage of great faculty. We have more than 1000 hours of fresh interactive content and our master teachers that make learning more fun and engaging.”
Arvind Singhal further added, “Vedantu is India’s leading LIVE online tutoring company. Over 30 million students benefit from LIVE sessions with some of India’s best-curated teachers.

Sharing his insightful experiences, Vedantu Master teacher Rohit Garg said, “In my growing up days, quality education was only concentrated in some parts of India. To study from prestigious institutes, one had to pay a lot of money in addition to traveling, hostel fees, mess fees, and deal with homesickness. However, online education removes all these obstacles. With televised education learning becomes more interesting with 3D models where students get to visualize things more prominently. We have observed that pictorial learning is a much better approach to engage with students.”
Vedantu Master teacher Himanshi Singh said, “Students can easily get distracted in this online world full of social media. To overcome such challenges, as a teacher, I always focus on making the session more interactive with the help of lots of HOTSPOTS, QUIZ, etc. Putting lots of energy and grabbing the attention of students to listen is very important. Over here, parents can also play a vital role in monitoring the students so that they are attentive in session and not involved in other activities in the background. I believe that a teacher’s energy and enthusiasm is also transferred to the student in virtual learning.”
The discussion was concluded with relevant questions from both subscribers and parents.
