A Hyderabad-based start-up, Smartur.com, has claimed to bring in 'hitherto unheard' experiential learning into Indian classrooms 'at affordable costs.'

Smartur.com's full fledged digital classroom solution-- www.smartur3D.in--built on Augmented Reality (AR) and Stereoscopic 3D platforms will be offered free to all schools across India for the current academic year 2014 -2015 for experiencing the benefits of augmented reality on learning, the company said in a release here today.

There were 15 lakh schools in India today of which 13 Lakh schools are supported by the government and two lakh schools are privately run. Of these two lakh private schools only about 35,000 schools have proper digital classroom solutions in place due to the cost factor, the release claimed.

To overcome this major impediment, Smartur 3D software Suite has been priced at an affordable Rs. 30,000 per school for an academic year. At present, it is available for classes 6 to 10 for biology and chemistry subjects.

Smartur.com will provide the software while schools can use their existing hardware or buy new hardware of their choice based on their budgets. To use AR mode of Smartur 3D, schools will just need a web camera which is available for as less as Rs 600 onwards in the market.

It planned to bring out tablet and mobile versions of Smartur 3D and also cover other subjects in the near future. UNI KNR GM 1506 NNNN
