VCCircle: Edutainment startup ConveGenius rewards students for finishing homework on time, targets 3M users by FY17

Wouldn’t it be great if your child were to get a discount on his/her favourite toy for finishing homework on time?
The Noida-based Convegenius Edusolutions Pvt Ltd, which owns and operates digital education startup ConveGenius, is offering something on similar lines.</p>
The company, which brings in elements of entertainment and associated rewards on its apps and mobile games, claims that about 6000 students use its tablet based-edutainment solution CG-Slate for an average of 15 minutes per day. ConveGenius aims to have three million kids on its platform by FY17, Shashank Pandey, co-founder of the company told Techcircle.
The CG-Slate interface provides features such as independence from the use of internet connection, easy distribution of content using SD cards, customised regional language integration, simple analytic report collection and teacher-student communication. It has the option of smart scribbles to maintain hand-written notes.
“We are working with few kids-focused e-commerce portals as well as gaming firms. Our customers include rural as well urban households,” said Pandey.</p>
The idea is that the e-commerce portals will dish out discounts for kids to finish an academic assignment on time. Or for that matter, the gaming firm partnership would would allow children to play one more level of their favourite games on meeting their academic targets.
The company says that CG-Slate envisages the integration of low-cost hardware (as was intended by government’s Aakash tablet project) and software focused ecosystem to help kids learn in fun way.
