FAQs

Why the name “Skillioma?”

Idioma in Spanish means language and since we are teaching life skills and English Language(reading fluency, communication) on the same platform, we have coined the name “Skillioma.” It simply means Skill+Idioma.

How is Skillioma different when compared to Google/YouTube/Internet content?

Skillioma is unique in many ways. 

  • Skillioma’s framework (geared for a child’s holistic development) is specially designed for children Grades 6-12.
  • Parents, Educators, Schools can be stress free for children’s safety as the content we create is meticulously crafted free of inappropriate images, language, vocabulary.
  • Skillioma’s content is broken down into easily understandable language and explanations. 
  • Because we handpick topics based on the child’s interest/age level, the content is engaging and powerful.
  • Students that use Skillioma will improve their reading fluency, vocabulary, communication skills, general knowledge, financial knowledge and other life skills.

Why should I subscribe to Skillioma when there are many other content resources on the internet?

Skillioma is an all in one platform for children where parents can be worry free and hands free in terms of imparting holistic knowledge and skills beyond school. We realized that there isn’t one reliable resource or extra-curricular activity that can “do-it-all” for their student’s success. We do the hard work, research and think ahead for your child, craft content and provide resources so there is undeterred success for your child’s future.

Is Skilloma in sync with the academic course syllabus (CBSE, ICSE, IGCSE, IB etc)? Should my child study “entrepreneur skills” in school as well?

Our uniquely created framework maps more into the future skills that a child needs once he/she passes out of high school and when the child actually enters the real world. However, a few of the course subjects from across boards do match in terms of topics. For example, we have content for young entrepreneurs on practical advice on how to start an enterprise. Likewise, you will have syllabus that has topic on “what is an enterprise,” from your Entrepreneurship subject at school. This is an example of when and how we might overlap with school syllabus. Subjects in high school such as Business Studies, Enterprise, Global Perspectives and Economics, may have some synching with our content. But, please remember; the way we craft the content and explain is through examples, images, comparison charts, internal linking and not in presented in a text book style. 

Yes, if your child is opting for a subject Entrepreneurship as a course in school, he/she should continue. In any case, regardless if anyone is taking any of the subjects listed above or not, our content has tremendous value for all the students.

How can we believe that the content published is authentic, and how do you ensure its genuineness?

Entire content at Skillioma is meticulously crafted by our team of expert writers. Our writers are well qualified and perform thorough research before presenting any content on our website. We ensure all our content is safe, plagiarism free and tailored for grade level so the students are able to grasp the content without assistance from their parents.

Does Skillioma help our kids in academics?

As some of our topics will match to some academic subjects, there definitely is going to be a boost for every child in academics too. Our general knowledge section will also help a great deal in most competitive exams.  Further, Skillioma can be a powerful asset for children who are opting for the Math and Science stream in school. With Skillioma, these children can still learn vital 21st century skills which are not part of their subject group.

Why does my child need to learn these skills? Doesn’t he/she get enough from school and the internet?

Yes, in the present-day scenario there is information everywhere for our children. But are they able to learn what they want on the topics related to general knowledge, science or sports by distilling the information at their own discretion? And are parents feeling safe for their children to search about anything on the internet at any time? Moreover, the employability of our children is very less (despite their academic strength) once they graduate from college as they are lacking necessary life skills that are not taught in schools. Skillioma is our sincere effort to assist our children so they become independent.

How do our children get time to use this platform amidst busy school and tuition schedules?

Skillioma isn’t aimed at being yet another academic based, must-have, marks/grades-oriented Education tool. The intention is for each child to be exposed to the right knowledge at the right level so they can keep learning the right things. Our content isn’t timeline or deadline based; it is an additional resource which will help them in their career paths. Your children can login at anytime and immerse in the engaging content. There aren’t any assignments in our website/app. Reading improves brain power, boosts memory and concentration in children. So, just 30 minutes a day on our website will give good results.

What is your 3A formula or the three-phase model?

The three A’s are Absorb, Assimilate, Apply.

The first Phase is the Absorb phase where students are exposed to the right tools and knowledge areas in an easily understandable manner.

The second Phase is the Assimilate phase where students are offered Video Courses (tailored particularly for children) on ten life skills. (example: Problem-solving, Leadership) [coming soon]

The third Phase is our Apply phase where students are given individual mentorship or personalized guidance on which career path they should take [coming soon]

Is your platform beneficial for adults or college students too?

Yes, absolutely. Our platform gives information and teaches skills that will help everyone gain knowledge and do well in their jobs or for people that are on a break and would like to return to work. We have customized content for Grade level 12+.

Is this a video course?

No, this current phase is called SBS-ELP (Skills Beyond School- English Language Proficiency) program and is not a video course. This is content based learning using VAC (Visual Auditory Cognitive) method.

How long should I spend on your website?

Our focus isn’t like academic curriculum. We have an engaging framework and we recommend 30 minutes a day or 2-3 hours a week minimum to reap a lot of benefits the platform offers.

Do you have video courses in the future?

Yes, we will be rolling video courses on 21st century life skills like Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Entrepreneurship, Business and Leadership Skills, Social and Emotional Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning etc. soon.

Do you offer a completion certificate?

Yes we do!! For a 6 month and a 12 month program with us. However, the cost will be less if you sign up for a 12 month/yearly plan.

What is Interest Level?

Interest Level is the recommended grade level from a title/article perspective. The recommendation is done based on the complexity level of the subject in general and not necessarily the reading level of a child. For example, if an article is slated for Grades 9-12+, our recommendation for the minimum grade level is 9, but that does not limit a child in Grade 8 to learn something higher.

Are there levels in Money and Entrepreneurship section? What if it is too complex for my child?

Yes, there are two levels in the Money and Entrepreneurship section- one is basic and the other is advanced. In our website, the basic level is slated under Grades 6-7+ and the advanced level is slated under Grades 9-12+.

If a subject is complex in its nature, we will simplify it and put it under grades 6-7+. However, this is only a recommendation; if a person who is above this grade level does not know anything about the subject at hand, they can search on the grade level 6-7+ and learn the basics before moving on. The intention for the levels in this category is to help build knowledge for a child at any level.

Please note that for the launch we are trying to build the foundation on the concepts that we feel are necessary for a child in the real world. Be assured that this is just a start and we will be giving you a lot of actionable steps and case studies that will be connecting subjects like Enterprise, Business Studies, Economics and Marketing in the near future.

We appreciate any suggestions on new concepts you would like to know or any tips on improving the presentation style. Please write to us at feedback@skillioma.com
