When we started using Practically for Virtual Classroom Management System, our teachers were extremely satisfied with the experience thanks to a number of useful features. Later on, we realised that students were performing better as they found the gamification and AR videos to be so fascinating that they were better able to retain and apply what they studied. Many of them have also gone on to use Practically outside of school hours because parents have found them to be beneficial for after-school learning as well”, said Avinash Kosaraju, Director, Dr. KKR Gowtham Group of Schools.

Practically School Solution helped us tide over the challenges we faced in keeping classes going while we all worked and studied from home. The virtual classrooms, with videos and simulations, quizzes and assessments encouraged teachers and students alike. Practically’s exhaustive content library, scheduling and test prep etc. were all ready when we started using it helping us derive value from day one and ensure continuity of lessons.”
