Enabling schools to teach at home

The virus first detected in Wuhan district in China in December last year, has now become an emergency of global scale. Corona virus, or COVID-19, as it has been called by WHO, has infected no less than 1.25 lakh people globally, claiming the life of more than 4000 persons. The WHO has already declared the situation a pandemic, due to which many state governments have advised all schools to remain shut until the situation gets under control.

Bearing this situation in mind and in order to ensure that learning can continue without impediments from the safety and comfort of home, Extramarks, the leading global education technology company, has launched 'Go-To-School' initiative. This initiative will give all students full and free access to the entire Extramarks – the learning app until April 30 and to JEE and NEET crash courses, starting March 20 to 23 respectively. Moreover, this initiative will also allow schools to take live online classes through the Extramarks technology platform anytime, anywhere, for free.

Speaking about the initiative, Ritvik Kulshrestha, CEO, Extramarks Education said, 'The COVID 19 epidemic requires careful measures to be taken by each and everyone of us to prevent further spread. As much life comes to a standstill, thanks to technology, learning can continue. We're, hence, giving free access of all our learning apps to students and of our technology platform to schools so that they can conduct online classes, under the Go-To-School initiative."

The learning app can be sought by downloading the app redeeming the GTS@K12 code. The JEE and NEET crash course by Extramarks, which is an online program delivered by top Indian faculty, can be accessed by downloading the JEE/NEET test prep app by Extramarks and applying code GTS@TP during checkout. The schools can themselves facilitate access to the learning app for all their students by simply getting in touch with their Extramarks representative. They may alsomail Extramarks at or give a call on 1800-258-5301 for any help.
