The School EdTech major also announced the launch of iHomework that will help teachers save 1 hour every day i.e. 150 hours for each teacher in a year that they can now use for something more productive.

Teachers spend considerable time preparing and evaluating homework daily. 

The app helps them track who has completed the homework, who hasn’t & triggers reminders accordingly. It also can correct objective questions & small word answers by reading almost any handwriting. 

In other cases, teachers can zoom in to read & correct on the app and reward students for their performance. The feature also suggests learning gaps in students & gives a remedial plan basis for the tasks.

Speaking on the launch, LEAD Co-founder & CEO Sumeet Mehta said, “At LEAD, we are constantly innovating to empower each stakeholder in the School EdTech space – Students with better learning in the classroom & at home, Teachers with relevant skills & resources and schools with the required tools to manage their admissions effectively.”

With our upcoming innovations, we hope we can empower them to become super teachers and in turn help students become future leaders,” Mehta added.
