- WHY WONDERSLATE:
Educational content is the core of any educational system, which connects the 3 main stakeholders i.e. Students, Teachers/Institutes, and Publishers. Them not talking to each other gave birth to the idea of Wonderslate where smart content will connect all 3 verticals and improve the publishing, teaching, and learning experience.
The goal is to create an “ultimate publishing, teaching, and learning experience” which will define what next-gen curriculum Smart eBooks should be where all the stakeholders talk to each other and take education to the next level.
- TARGET USER:
Publishers, Authors, Teachers, Institutions, and Students.
Age group: 08-70 Yrs.
- TECHNOLOGY AS AN ENABLER- FOR STUDENTS:
Instead of carrying a bag full of bulky books students can just take a device of their choice i.e. Smartphone, Tablet or Laptop where all their books will be stored in a system which supports all kinds of media, practice papers, reports, etc.
- TECHNOLOGY AS AN ENABLER- FOR TEACHERS/INSTITUTES:
Traditional books can take advantage of technology and result in a dynamic book which takes the pain away from a teacher of creating tests, sharing, evaluating, etc. All these processes can be easily automated with the help of technology.
- TECHNOLOGY AS AN ENABLER- FOR PUBLISHERS/AUTHORS:
Publishers/Authors need not worry about their book getting reprinted for new additions, expensive logistics, printing, etc. They should be able to convert their already created content into a digital eBook which is more useful to the student. This will also lead to less usage of papers meaning less carbon emission.
“To make technology accessible to the above stakeholders, the concept of “WS eBook” came into existence.”
- WS EBOOK CREATION- WS PUBLISH:
The idea of WS eBook being completely new meant that to make Publisher, Authors, Teachers, and Institutes adapt to it; the creation of a WS eBook has to be very robust and simple. The goal of WS Publish is to enable learning content creators to create a WS eBook as quickly as possible providing them with a variety of automated tools, dashboards, etc. which will assist them before and after the creation of a WS eBook.
- WS EBOOK SALE- WONDERSLATE STORE:
Once a Smart eBook is created it can be easily pushed to Wonderslate store where it can be sold or given for free. All the required information is provided to the students to check before making a buying decision.
- SMART EBOOK CONSUMPTION- WONDERSLATE LIBRARY:
Once a student purchases a Smart eBook, it will be added to his/hers Wonderslate Library where they can read, learn, practice, analyze, create study sets, and generate custom tests.
- PRODUCT ARCHITECTURE:
Wonderslate app is divided into two sections:
Anything done with a WS eBook before purchase/adding to library is contained within Store and anything done post-purchase/adding to library is contained within Library.WS Store is not just an eBook store but a platform to find the best available textbooks to prepare for any exam.
