The Indian academic scene, whether at the level of basic or higher education, has unique problems and challenges particular to the Indian ecosystem. The educational challenges that we face in India are magnified due to large numbers, lack of resources, quality of available resources and ethics. The standard traditional solutions and modern western solutions, both fail miserably to address these issues. We need to device unique solutions driven by technology that are inclusive, scalable and affordable, and cater to the Indian issues. In this talk I will discuss some fo the challenges of the Indian education system and some of the efforts that are underway at the Centre for Research in Advanced Technology for Education in Science (CREATES) at IISER Bhopal. In particular, I will discuss about examineer.in, an assessment engine for Indian ecosystem developed by CREATES and Studio AIR – an adaptive, immersive and responsive learning environment.
