Animation comes to Class X students' aid
AHMEDABAD: Dialogues from motion pictures are somehow always easier to remember than remembering portions from books, even if they have been read over and over again. But for students appearing for Class X exams in March 2009, they now have an option to study their course in an animated form.
Navneet Publications have launched self-practice software, on Wednesday called 'Navneet Top Scorer Digest Plus' for students of Class X of Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB). They also launched an Online Examination Software, 'Navneet GUJCET’.
The software has multiple choice questions which will prepare students for the entrance exam. The animated digest has information on Theorems. Formulae and Definitions. Audio-Visual Animation technic has been used to explain concepts which have been covered in the various chapters in the textbook.
"The software has been developed in both Gujarati and English language. The subjects covered are Maths, Science and Social Science for Class X. It is available for Rs 399," said Raju Gala, the president marketing of Navneet Publications.
"Animation has played a major role in making the software more functional to the students. It has been used effectively for various descriptive questions to increase the recall value for the students. 'Take a Test' feature of this software enables the students to gauge their performance graphically and thus work upon their areas of weakness.
In the current academic year, we are targeting around 600 schools in Gujarat and 150 schools in Maharashtra. We are in process of developing the software in Marathi, according to the Maharashtra School Board," Gala said.
