Anytime Anywhere School (AAS) - Bringing School to Students Who Cannot Go to One


Anytime Anywhere School (AAS) - A Virtual School Startup to Bring School to Students

A Mobile App based platform which brings an entire school to the children

India’s vision to be a world leader in the 21st century can only be realized with a robust education system. Vikas Kakwani, an IIT-IIM Graduate launches AAS Vidyalaya- Anytime Anywhere School, a platform that brings an entire school on the phone. AAS Vidyalaya is a virtual school – a mobile app, built for millions of students who cannot go to school, in order to bring the school to them. The Social School operates exactly like a regular school with a dedicated class-teacher, timetables, subject periods and regular assessments.

According to Census Data, 8.4 crore Indian children don’t attend school. Poverty, lack of availability and accessibility are the major reasons why children drop out of school. On the other hand, India currently has a smartphone use base of over 300 million which is expected to cross 650 million by 2019. Harnessing the power of mobile technology and its reach, AAS Vidyalaya is a comprehensive user friendly app, built to fortify education- the backbone of the country’s growth and development. The app has been designed on Android platform and is easily available on Google Playstore.

“The idea is to create a virtual school available for everyone- a school ‘For the People, By the People’”, says Vikas Kakwani who proclaims himself to be a product of education and hence, believes that the only way India can benefit from its demographic dividend is when everyone in the country is educated.

Instead of bringing children to the school AAS gets the school to the children - Students can attend school from anywhere and teachers can work from home, while parents can seamlessly monitor day-to-day progress of the students. One can attend classes, interact with subject teachers; class teacher, take tests, and monitor their progress with this app. AAS has been launched for secondary education with CBSE curriculum, while the plan is to add other boards soon. AAS holistically brings in flexibility and cost benefits for students, teachers, as well as parents, thereby strengthening the educational system at the grass root level.

A revolutionary idea to bring continuing education to people who need it, AAS Vidyalaya has been recognized as a Changemaker by Global Action on Poverty (GAP) for 2017.
