Valley-based IITians develop 'Wise App' for online learning on 2G speed

Srinagar, August 8

 Even as the gag on fast-speed 4G service continues to remain in place in the union territory for over a year now, two IIT graduates have developed an android application — “Wise App” — to enable online learning on 2G service.

"Wise App, which works on 2G, enables teachers to schedule and conduct live classes on ZOOM without the headache of having to share meeting IDs and passwords. Additionally, it enables teachers to send and receive assignments, facilitate discussions, share material and receive automated attendance reports, all at one place," said Mubeen Masudi, who developed the App with Bilal Abidi, both, 2011 graduates of IIT Bombay.

Masudi has been preparing students of Kashmir for JEE, NEET, SAT, etc for the past eight years.

"Post Covid, like every other teacher, I started teaching online through ZOOM. I realised the challenges of conducting classes online. I used to share meeting IDs/Passwords through whatsapp, assignments through mail, and study material through google drive links. It was all very chaotic and difficult to manage. My focus shifted from teaching to juggling across multiple apps. Consequently, this negatively affected the learning experience of my students. That is when I realised the need for a unified platform for myself,” said Masudi.

Abidi said after two months of efforts, Wise app was launched on google playstore last week.

“The application is extremely simple to use and unlike the existing ones in the market doesn’t expect the teacher to be tech savvy. Anyone can download the application from Playstore and start using it right away. It is completely free of cost and without any advertisements. In the past one week more than 50 teachers have already started testing or using the application. And the feedback received from them has been encouraging,” he added.
