Anand and Yogish

"What Tally has done to accountants we need to replicate for teachers too. Tally has taken away the drudgery of record-keeping from the accountant's routine and freed him for more meaningful tasks such as analysis and interpretation of data. The drudgery in most teachers' daily lives is mostly to do with tracking of a heterogeneous set of students, to minute details such as marks, performance in assignments etc. In the process, we get lost in marks and lose focus on learning. We can take the drudgery out of teachers' lives by delegating the routine tasks computers and go to even granular and finer details, otherwise humanly impossible. With computing, we can model the learning process, and with historical data stored, we can get with a click of a button the most relevant parameters pertaining to a student's progress. The teacher can then be free to play the role of a mentor, interpreter, facilitator and path-charter."
