We are now ready to formally launch the Mastermind Abacus E-Learning Platform by the 15th of Aug, 2021, the Independence Day of India.
The advanced technology and its integration with the Abacus have broken the myth and made Abacus Online Classes be it teaching or learning a reality.
Abacus Teaching and Learning will no more be a privilege of the Urban area only. You may be located in the remotest part of the world; you too can now start your Online Abacus Center like any of your counterparts in the cities.
Talk to anyone aware of an Abacus and its process of learning, it would be very difficult to convince that abacus learning and teaching could be possible through virtual classes, or to say an Abacus Training Online could be equally effective as any conventional Abacus classroom teaching.
Importance of Abacus for a Student
The importance of Abacus education in promoting whole brain development in younger children, enhancing their mental math, speeding up their calculation abilities, augmenting their level of concentration, and improving their visualization was very well recognized by the Education Fraternity and the Parents/Guardians.
The problem is it has not been easily accessible to many. The reason being while Abacus Academy or Trained Faculties were available in the major cities the smaller towns lacked their presence, hence depriving many who wanted to train their kids in Abacus Math and give them a competitive edge in their future academics.
The Pandemic Effect on Abacus Institutes
We have been promoting Abacus Education for over two decades and are present in over 16 countries through our trained faculties and over 2000 Abacus Training Centers.
My entire think tank never imagined a situation when teaching Abacus through the conventional normal classrooms could no more be possible. As we all are aware of the Global pandemic due to Covid 19, the entire conventional education system came to a halt and so did Abacus teaching and learning as the students stopped coming to the Abacus Centers.
Not only all our associates and teachers but over 10,000 Abacus-trained teachers across the world were looking for solutions, a solution that could help the revival of the Abacus Centers and bring back the students. And of course, there were others who were planning to start their own Abacus Franchisee Centers but had to stall their idea.
The Online Abacus Learning Platform – A challenge
The need for an Online Abacus Learning platform was felt by many. This could be felt even from the fact that the most commonly searched phrase on Google was 'Abacus Classes near me. But there were huge challenges in actually creating an Online Abacus Learning and Teaching Platform. The requirement was to have an Online Abacus Learning and Teaching Platform that should:
1. Be easy to use/operate by the Students without hassles, not be monotonous rather it should be very interesting.
2. Be able to give all the features of conventional Abacus Centers like constant the presence of a teacher, one-to-one interaction, active participation of students, getting guidance when needed, etc.
3. Facilitate training and monitor the correct finger movements on the Abacus Instrument.
4. Allow the students to train for mental math.
5. Allow the Abacus Teacher to monitor the performance and progress of every student.
6. Enable real-time checking of Classwork, Homework and also let the students know their scores.
7. Provide a Virtual Assistant (a virtual teacher to help the students solve a sum if they were to get stuck) while doing their Homework or solving a sum.
The Revolutionary Live Online Abacus E-Learning Platform
Not many such options are available that could meet all these requirements for an effective Online Abacus Learning Platform. Rather be very specific there were none. We created the Mastermind Abacus, the most advanced Abacus E-Learning Platform. It has all the facilities that an Abacus Trainer or a student would require.
The features of the Mastermind Abacus E-Learning Platform can be listed below
1. The Lessons –All lessons of every level are easy visuals where sums are solved depicting through right finger movements on the Abacus Instrument, with the objective to ensure effective learning by the students. These learning lessons are shared with the students by the teacher as per the schedule.
2. Practice - All the practice lessons are in the form of games. They have all been transformed into innovative, interesting Math Video Games. To score points in the game the students have to solve the sums on their abacus or mentally, input the answers.
The advantages are, firstly the students enjoy playing the games and the Abacus Class never becomes monotonous, they wait for the next class. Secondly, the interesting learning process ensures the dropouts as seen in conventional classes are far fewer here.
3. Students Panel – A panel is accessible to all registered Students of Mastermind Abacus. This Panel has two parts, the first one being from where they can do all the learning and the other is the Video Conferencing Screen which allows them to be able to communicate with their teacher. From this Panel, the students can
a. See the lesson videos that are shared by their teacher and learn.
b. Do the classwork assigned by the teacher
c. Do the Home assignments given by the teacher
d. Participate in the exams when they are conducted.
f. Resolve their problems if any by directly communicating with their teacher during the class.
g. See the marks or points obtained by them in their Classwork, Homework, and Practice and also the points allotted by the teacher.
h. Access Virtual Abacus – This is a readily available assistant that will help the students in finding a solution if they are stuck at any sum. It is a virtual abacus which is a digital abacus tool very similar to a student’s abacus. While doing an exercise if a wrong answer is submitted the option of taking the help of Virtual Abacus appears.
i. Get Certificates – The students can download their Certificates after the successful completion of every level.
j. Access The Book – The students can download and get a print of all the lessons Classwork, Homework, and Practice lessons.
4. Teachers Panel – The exclusive Teacher’s Panel allows the teachers to teach the students from their home, using their Laptop or PC, through the internet. This Panel has two parts, one that allows the teacher to teach and share educational videos, the other is a Video conferencing Screen that allows the teacher to be able to see and also be accessible to the students. A virtual but live Online Abacus training can be conducted from here.
From this Panel an Abacus teacher
a. Can share preloaded learning lesson videos for the students to see and learn the fundamentals.
b. Can assign Class Work to the students after every lesson video.
c. Can assign Homework
d. Can conduct exams after every level is completed.
e. Can do Certification – The teacher can issue certificates to students after completion of every level.
f. Can communicate and observe the students and their activities through the video conferencing option, they can communicate with them and guide them as and when needed.
