Soon, learning will become an enjoyable experience for children in India and other countries. This will be made possible by Mobile Learning Classroom Application, a tablet based end-to-end solution for schools.

Pressmart, Online publishing provider, has announced a Mobile Learning Classroom Application (MOCA). It is tablet based end-to-end solution for schools.

The Hyderabad-based firm announced deployment of its application by La Salle Green Hills (LSGH), a school in Manila, Philippines. It also plans pilot projects in India, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia in the coming months.

MOCA allows school going children to access text books and worksheets in a digitised format on an Android-based tablet. The solution costs $100 for a year’s education.

V K Torpunur, Chairman, Pressmart, said, “MOCA is based on a private cloud-based interactive education system aimed at making learning an interesting, enjoyable and collaborative experience on mobile devices.”

The e-tablet initiative involving Pressmart, MOCA consists of a five-phase implementation. The first, on-going, phase involves merely replacing textbooks with the tablet devices. MOCA will be sold in India at the price range of Rs 4000 – Rs. 7000 for institutions.
