Rankpedia Bridging the Digital Divide Gap in the Indian Education system through Digitization
Rankpedia is a movement. A revolutionary perspective of bridging the digital divide that has crept up in the Indian education ecosystem with the EdTech boom. Rankpedia is a calling to reach out to all students in the country and across the world to provide education with world-class quality standards. It is nestled in the hands of passionate educators who have the same vision as Rankpedia. It started with a simple thought of 'Why can't world-class education be affordable?'. This thought embedded a seed in our mind and gave us a vision of providing education to children at an affordable price without compromising on the quality and the diversity that they deserve. We have walked on a path to deliver world-class education by integrating pedagogy and the latest technological advancements to offer the best opportunities to students.
The Managing Director and the spirit of Rankpedia, Mr. Ravi Kumar, had the vision and a passion to bring this movement into action that had the potential to make a change. Having seen both sides of the education ecosystem of the country where kids in rural areas did not have the access to basic education at affordable prices and on the other side, kids in urbanized cities having the luxury of quality education and good schools, somewhat gave him the nudge to create the change that Rankpedia focuses on i.e., Sustainability, Affordability and Reach of education to every kid of the country. Building Rankpedia on the right pillars to support this entire idea and process, he brought in three core members who would drive his vision into the actual reality of improving education availability and quality in different verticals.
