This small effort is to contribute to the best of our capacity towards the Indian education system, a system, which has made our startup where it is today."
The teachers will be able to conduct unlimited live and interactive online classes for up to 500 students in each session (be it for teaching or doubt solving) on Impartus Virtual Classroom, which is hosted on AWS. The students can also watch the on-demand recordings of these classes on Impartus platform.
