With technology integrated learning modules, learners from all the grades can easily visualize the concepts and keep being engaged in learning.
One of the most prominent features of the app is that it has incorporated adaptive learning and thus, the content is always tailored to the individual needs of the students. The app adapts itself to the unique learning styles of the students and makes learning more personalised and student-friendly. BYJU’S app uses big data analytics to identify the learning fingerprints of the individual students and provides a personalised learning environment to help the students learn at their own pace, style and convenience.
Several assessments are also provided along with the lectures to help the students analyse their performance. The analysis also helps the app to determine weaknesses and learning gap of the user to provide appropriate lessons on those topics after the test. The students are also provided with personal mentors to help them clear their respective doubts at the earliest.
