Vedantu is conceptualized to bring personalization back into Education. We imagine a world where a student will be at the center of learning again. Where a teacher will teach according to the need, pace and level of a student. Where learning graduates from One-to-Many to 1-to-1.
For personalization to happen, technology will definitely help. But more importantly there has to be a system free of institutions where learning is bound within four walls. We imagine a world free of such middle layers, where a student is directly connected to a teacher and learning-teaching happens in a personalized way. Imagine a world with Knowledge Democracy.
