eDreams has developed FunToot, which is cloud based software that uses natural language processing tools and artificial intelligence to give personalized tutoring. The software interacts, observes, diagnosis, assesses, encourages and tutors each individual student based on his or her characteristics. It encourages fun-filled learning and helps inculcate innovative thinking among students.
FunToot costs between Rs. 150 to Rs. 300 a student per month and doesn’t require installation of any additional hardware or software. You just need to have a computer and an internet connection and you’re ready to go. It is currently being used by more than 20,000 students in over 30 schools. The main idea behind developing FunToot is to eliminate the learning deficit in every student which has developed as a result of homogeneous nature of teaching in modern classroom.
eDreams was founded by Rajeev Pathak, who has earlier worked as a GM-Software Products Group at Wipro. Pathak holds a masters degree in Business Administration from IIM Bangalore and is M.Tech from BITS Pilani. He has 19 years of work experience behind him. According to Pathak, It gives him immense satisfaction to see thousands of kids being benefitted in the country through FunToot’s deep personalized learning.

Providing personalized learning to each individual has now become one of the greatest challenges of modern schooling system but eDream’s FunToot is a great solution for this challenge.
