    Brief description of the programme/project/initiative :

    Exclusively designed for educational institutions ‘K Kampus Edutrainment’ is a revolutionary concept of providing end to end solutions bringing Education + training + entertainment all under one roof. ‘K Kampus’ is an innovative initiative of K Sera Sera Ltd. K Kampus is providing education via satellite in their K Sera Sera Miniplex movie theatres across India with a focus on tier 2 and 3 cities. A student sitting in the comfort of these theatres is able to interact, learn and prepare for competitive exams and skill based programs. Taking this innovative concept forward K Kampus is associating with National Institutes and Medical Universities for assisting and setting up state of the art facilities for Lecture theatres/Auditoriums in their premises for imparting virtual education and termed the project as K Kampus Edutrainment.

    Why was the project started?
    Today most Institutes either require or have an existing auditorium/Lecture theatre. Almost all the auditoriums/lecture theatres remain underutilized, being used only during certain functions/events. Also shortage of experienced faculty and integration of employability skills along with current education system are huge gaps that are unaddressed. The effect of above has been significant unemployment amongst youth and shortage of skills for the industry. In medical institutions there are challenges in capturing the critical surgeries which can be used as live case studies. Furthermore there is lack of infrastructure and technical expertise in most institutes. Thus K Kampus Edutrainment project was initiated to provide infrastructure along with technical expertise and thus act as a unique platform to bridge these needs for the education industry.

    Objective:
    Our objective is to set up Auditoriums/Lecture theatres/Hi tech studios which blends the strengths and advantages of traditional methods of education with cutting edge technology, and with the help of virtual education in the same provide institutions with end to end solutions, offering training, assessment, industry curriculum, certification and placement to the students through our network that make students employable. Hence our objective is to benefit not only the Institutes but the students and the corporate by providing a unique platform to bridge the requirements of all.

    Target Group:
    Our target is deemed and private universities, Engineering and medical Institutes for Technology and Edutrainment Auditoriums/lecturetheatres. Graduation students for Skills Edge Programs and the entire student fraternity for competitive Exams Coaching. Our target group is also the corporate to establish skill requirements and train the students accordingly to place them.

    Geographical reach:
    Vision is to have a pan India presence focusing majorly on tier II and III cities.

    Date from which the project became operational :

    List 5 key challenges faced while implementing the programme/project/initiative and how they were overcome?

    2.Teir 2 and 3 city institutions lack vision and were hesitant, to invest in such an infrastructure. We overcame this by offering them various solutions under edutrainment for adding revenue streams to achieve ROI’s
    3.Institutes were hesitant to accept our Programs, but we overcame this by involving corporates for placement linked to these Programs resulting in increased campus employability.
    4.Students lacked vision to accept additional qualifications and were hesitant to invest in such qualifications. We offered employment options along with these qualifications to overcome this challenge and made it acceptable.”
