Mojo Networks collaborates with IIT Bombay to support India’s advanced smart exam
Future classrooms to be enabled with enhanced interactivity and enriched communication through the correct use of technology
Mojo Networks, a pioneer in cloud-managed Wi-Fi, has collaborated with IIT Bombay, the second-oldest institute of the Indian Institutes of Technology system, to provide seamless & amp; reliable Wi-Fi experience in smart classrooms.
The wireless performance has helped in the successful deployment of SAFE (Smart Authenticated Fast Exams), a smartphone app-based system for conducting exams in classrooms, created by professors & student researchers of IITB. Coupled with Mojo’s Wi-Fi, SAFE has been used for different purposes in smart classrooms such as continuous assessment through short quizzes; easy, paper-free objective exams; check mental presence and surveys and polls.
SAFE is easy to operate and most importantly, it is safe: it employs a host of mechanisms to ensure the integrity of the exam, by restricting the use of the smart device for the intended purpose, for the duration of the SAFE exam. Reliable and scalable Wi-Fi is a pre-requisite for smart-classroom apps like SAFE.
In the words of Kiran Deshpande, Co-founder and President, Mojo Networks “Professors and students demand zero downtime of the Wi-Fi infrastructure, especially during an exam setting. There should be a firm assurance to support several hundred student devices simultaneously in each classroom. We make certain that our Wi-Fi access points deliver interactive performance during the interval of the assessment.”
On Wi-Fi- enabled smart classrooms, Professor Bhaskaran Raman opined: “Future classrooms should have enhanced interactivity, and enriched communication through the correct use of technology. Students should be able to collaborate with one another, and teachers should be able to interact better with students, get feedback on their understanding, and also conduct exams easily. The vision of the smart classroom is critically dependent on availability of a highly reliable and high performance Wi-Fi solution.”
