According to a recent MIT study, massive open online courses (MOOCs) are just as effective as what has traditionally been taught in a classroom or a lecture hall. There’s a renaissance occurring in higher education right now, and it’s being led by students who would want to take control of their education, set their own schedules, and gain invaluable experience through experiential learning.
Online school in India started during the pandemic. Nonetheless, there is one exception – Vikalp Online School. This existed since 2015. This is the only school which started in the pre pandemic era. Their scale of operation was small. They grew multiple times during pandemic period.
Since they have some 7 years of experience, they can differentiate between Physical and Online School. Over the years, they have understood that understood that Online school cannot be a copy of Physical school. Teachers cannot teach using blackboard or PPTs. This is the reason Vikalp Online school teaches using learning tools and APPs.
In traditional school there are around 50 children in the class. Each child has different way of learning. Even the best teacher has single style of teaching. The style of teaching of the teacher may or may not match with the way of learning of a child. This mismatch leads to learning gap.
This can be addressed in home schooling where parent and teacher can pay individual attention to students. You can opt for Vikalp Online School which can assist your child in learning. In this Online School concepts are introduced using learning toys. Children play and discover concepts on their own at their own pace. This learning becomes fun and easy. And the best part, they also provide matriculation certificate from government.
We issue Grade Completion Certificate and Assassments Reports. We also issue a Transfer Certificate on request.
Vikalp Online School is Accredited by NIOS.
Vikalp follows CCE pattern Assassment. Generally, tests in schools are conducted to give marks and highlight weakness of children. Objective of Vikalp assessment is twofold. These are “assessment for learning” and “assessment of learning”. “Assessment for learning” is to gauze a student’s performance while he/she is learning. This is done through observing & analysing the activities children are doing for learning. Thus, a child’s process of learning is recorded in form of activity score. “Assessment of learning” is pen and paper test which is conducted once the learning process is over. This is recorded in form of Application score. Both Activity & Application score is analysed and a diagnostic report highlighting strength and weakness of a child is generated.

Vikalp Online School is an Activity Based Online School. Kids learn by doing or exploring the concept on a Educational toy/STEM toy,
which is sent to your home. Its a known fact that Activity Based Learning works best for Kids with disability as they are able to form a clearer mental images of abstract concept.
It completes the syllabus. All the concepts of English, Math and Life Skills are dealt in detail. Interestingly, it completes the syllabus using activity-based-method. This is absolutely necessary in Online School as old lecture-based-method doesn’t work for Online School. If teacher starts explaining concepts online children lose interest. Therefore, physical products are shipped to your home. Children do activities during Online Class and discover concepts.
It is effective because it has advantages of both online and offline school.
Advantage of online school
Pace of the course is according to the learner. Learning Manger cannot proceed to the next topic until the current topic is complete. Child can ask number of times without any fear. Consequently, learner gets personal attention which is not possible in a physical school where 50 students are studying together in a class.
Advantage of offline school
When a teacher is physically present, he/she can explain better. Its not effective when this explanation is accessed online. This disadvantage is converted into advantage in Vikalp system. Learning Manager doesn’t need to explain anything on blackboard. He/she need to just facilitate the activities which a child is doing with the physical tools. Children discover concepts on their own while doing activities. All kind of learners (visual, auditory & kinaesthetic) learns better in this process. Learning Manger is just a guide. In this guided learning approach, children learns on their own.
