10 minutes of digital magic
Imagine yourself as a 9th grader, struggling to figure out how the human brain works. If you could see how the whole process of cell division works, the phases would've felt less baffling. Imagine the book you're reading is talking to you, interacting with you, showing you how easily the topic can be grasped. Imagine you stumble upon a new word. Instead of forcibly memorizing it, the meaning of the word magically pops up and explains itself. Close your eyes. Hold the book and imagine all of it. Last year, 10 Minute School introduced their version of digital books which they call SmartBooks. During the HSC examination last year, over a million students spent hours in the 10 Minute School website, all of them equally astonished to have their tough Bangla poems explained at ease. All they had to do was hover over the yellow statements to see what the statements meant. Launched in February 2017, these smart-books have already been read more than a million times by the students. Anyone can find these smart-books for free in the website www.10minuteschool.com The human heart, chemical reactions, Pythagorean theory and such are explained with 3D images in these smart-books. Students can practically touch the image and zoom in and out to see what it is about. They can learn about a significant topic, take a short quiz to ratify what they learned instantly, watch videos if the topic isn't clear and take the quiz again. The smart-books takes the students through all the difficult concepts of these subjects as captured in the text book with detailed and interactive explanation. The smart-books help students with lateral thinking as well, as it highlights the connection and correlation among various formulae and topics. 10 Minute School is planning to come up with 520 SmartBooks of classes 1 to SSC. The website currently has more than 300 SmartBooks of Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, General Knowledge, Bangla, English and Business Studies. Moreover, they are planning to introduce their official app soon, which won't just contain the video tutorials and the SmartBooks. Now, take another moment to visualize. Think of a fish. You want to know every single detail about it. Open an app, press the camera of your device and the fish magically appears on your device with details imprinted on it and a video tutorial starts on the creature itself. With the app being launched very soon, 10 Minute School will be launching their augmented reality app as well. With the professional courses launched recently, in association with Robi, they are providing Masterclasses taken by acclaimed writer Anisul Haque on writing, Sulaiman Shukhon on corporate grooming and significant individuals on the special subjects. Classes on acting, poetry, digital etiquette etc will begin soon. With two silver play buttons from YouTube channel, 10 Minute School and 10 Minute School Live, they have also been awarded with the prestigious APICTA awards, which is considered to be the Oscars of ICT. Thus, against all odds, the purpose of pursuing education will no longer be confined to getting good grades only. The smart-books remove the need to purchase piles of guide-books, and thereby allow students from even humble socio-economic backgrounds to get access to high quality education content free of cost.
