The education and employability gap is 47% in India as per a study. This clearly states that just being academically strong does not guarantee career success. And with experience, we are very well aware that the young generation needs to learn things outside of school syllabus.
Prior to finding Skillioma, Deepa has done her Master’s education from the USA and has held leadership roles working for fortune 100 companies. Her passion towards doing something purposeful led her to conceive the idea of Skillioma. She believes that through right education, the children can conquer the world.
One reason why I love Skilioma is that the articles are easily comprehensible. I call it like a wikipedia for beginners/youngsters. While I was reading an article about loans, I could understand every word for two reasons: the language was simple and there were vocabulary words that gave definitions right in the text and was heavily diversified. The great thing is, I can fill my knowledge gap with so much information on this website alone. I think this will be a great tool for many students. This is like an all in one platform and has business, financial skills not found anywhere else. Also, it has customized content by grade level. It can keep students up to date with current affairs and can increase their knowledge about different subjects. Go Skilioma!
The concept of Skillioma looks great. Content is simple and easy to understand. It will be very helpful for people who like reading and upgrading their knowledge. Even parents can learn along with their kids. The look, presentation and feel of the site is very positive along with the listen to article feature. Kids usually know bookish and theoretical knowledge and don't know what to do with it. I feel Skillioma kind of content lessens the gap between theory, practical and what to do with the knowledge gained. The best is that Skillioma also gives a framework on ‘what to learn’ and just not only ‘how to learn.’ This will also develop reading habits in students.
Skillioma has taken a step in the right direction by bringing together excellent curated material that will definitely add value to children and help them prepare for the Future of Work in an easily consumable way.
