Only iPAD Based

October 16, 2019

I was thinking aloud on how to take it ahead, I really don’t want to master all CS stuff regarding all Smart Phones and Tablets. I decided to go ahead only and only with iPAD OS based tech and design.

It makes it easy for me to focus only on one tech and focus only on delivering 1 complete pure solution on a platform which is neat, best and industry leader. I always loved Apple & Steve Jobs and I am taking it ahead only and only on iPAD platform.

Will write more about the beauty of the iPAD platform later this week.

(Android Development) and (iOS & iPAD OS)

October 16, 2019

I am keen on developing my own instructional design patterns and systems for my ECLS app. I won’t make it web based. I will only make it smartphone app based and tablets app based. Needless to say it would be in Android and iOS and iPAD OS versions.

I will be doing three things parallel from now on. Study Blooms Taxonomy. Study relevant CS Code. Prepare my own instructional design for K12, CS and Competitive Exams and Career Courses.

I will officially start from 1 Jan 2020. Until then I need to master CS Code of Android and iOS. Plus – “Blooms Taxonomy”.

So eLearning now means primarily for K12

October 16, 2019

I have seen big startups with great funding licking shoe dust despite of having great funding. I have seen many small apps growing upto Unicorn because of good design. And at the same time, I have seen someone of the repute of KHAN ACADEMY give every bit of the education for free and still make more than $250 Million.

I now have taken a view-point. I have seen that since all efforts almost everywhere is for K-12 education, it must be the right market and the right pain point. My own observation says the same. People who want to study can study almost anywhere given the right resources and the right teachers.

I have been toying with the idea of making ECLS which would be eNhanced eNgaging eLectronic cReative lEarning sYstem. I am already studying Benjamin Bloom’s Taxonomy and some related stuff for bring my ECLS to the light. I am making it highly engaging and highly creative and highly learning oriented.

I am not making it any school syllabus oriented. I am just making it learning oriented.

Will start working on the content from year day 1 of Jan 2020.

Mission ed:TECH

October 8, 2019

I am crystal clear that I have to make my career in ed:TECH.

I see there are 7 different directions:
1. CS Code for CMS
2. CS Code for LCMS
3. CS Code for ERP
4. CS Code for iCRM
5. CS Code for KRP
6. CS Code for iSocial
7. ID Code for ECLS

I am apt for all these 7 verticals and I will be able to achieve them. I am wondering which tech to use for it.

XCode + Swift = What I intend to master asap.

ed:TECH is my career
