ABU DHABI, February 19, 2018

Swoo, a leading global livestreaming platform, has partnered with Alef Education, a technology-enabled education solution company, for interactive platform where teachers and students can interact remotely in real time.

The partnership’s focus is to provide maximum learning gain to the students and shape their future. Current education and the classroom have many logistical challenges - fix school time, fix class slots and limitation to collaborate and reach out to the teachers outside the school hours. Also, logistics challenges for teachers are to teach a large number of students simultaneously and/or teach students at a geographic apart location. Moreover, the collaboration envisions that the real-time collaborative virtual classroom concept will provide immense advantages to teachers and students.

As part of the launch, a school in Abu Dhabi, with help of Swoo, e-connected a teacher in the UK to deliver a lecture through Swoo interactive live platform.

Through a special Swoo supported live broadcast channel, educational material was introduced for direct circulation between the teacher and the students. By means of the advanced live transmission of image and sound, the teacher was provided with various tools and alternatives to present, introduce and discuss the educational content.

In addition, the new revolutionary technology provided the teacher with the opportunity to communicate effectively with the students to determine the individual weaknesses of each of them and discuss individual solution to them in real time.

Divyesh Mahajan, Swoo CEO, said: “Through the strategic partnership with “Alef Education”, Swoo aims to facilitate communication and improve remote interaction between students and teachers, thereby support the educational process through innovative technologies. Such ambitious projects undoubtedly inspire us to create new and distinctive products.
