Edtech has been a lot more than just a common buzzword. The sector has grown multifold as the pandemic forced educators and institutions to adopt the technology to stay afloat. Online education for learners across all age groups has become prevalent. Startups in the edtech sector are disrupting traditional technologies in order to meet the changing demands of students.
Talking about how advanced tech is helping the venture to accelerate, Ankit Agarwal, Founder and CEO, Unstop mentions, “We stand with students from college to recruitment. A student is commonly limited to their known network of their college campus recruitment but on Unstop one can browse the opportunities available."
Maheswari Peri, Founder and CEO, Career360 said, ”Covid has destroyed methods of traditional degrees and currently, an ecosystem for skilling programmes is building up. We aim to help students to select the right college, the right path and informed choice as students are more inclined towards tech and health now".
As the name suggests edtech, it requires a technical backend to run services such as cloud and storage. Speaking about the role of AWS in making a positive impact, Maheswari Peri, Founder and CEO, carrer360 mentions, “collecting the intent of students is very important to deliver credible information to them”
