Is it time for Education portals to blossom in India

Its the time of the year when you start hearing of education portals launching across India. Every year we get stats thrown in newspapers and entrepreneurs talking about big potential this sector have and how businesses can be built around educational content delivery via digital media.

Year on year same concept same sites same information. There are books available in market being published year by year with special mention to UGC Universities in India guide book which offers complete profiling of UGC recognized educational institutions.

Does india still needs so many sites giving repetative information helping students find the right college and right course. Is a simple search by course name or region where they want to study or by stream they took enough to return the right results on what students are looking for??

Starting a portal targeted to students is much simpler then even providing search to find courses and colleges. Just create a a simple site collecting all admission notifications of education institutions coming in news paper. Create a list which students can sort on course they want to apply for or city. Boom you have a functional site which will have higher usage then high flying course and college finders. Over the years web has evolved information available has increased then why arent people trying to be innovative coming up with much simpler formats??

There have been so many sites in this area admissionhelp.com , admissionews.com, indianmba.com ,coolavenues.com, mbauniverse.com

We have seen so much innovation happening in online travel space why not come up with education meta search engine. I dont blame the indian online space even in US there has not been much innovation in online education space. Some one just needs to rise up and cease the moment to become the biggest.

Question i will be answering next couple of days…why cant i do it???

    Well, this would be a interesting phenomenon to keep a tab on. Though from the initial reports it looks like .com business is all set to boom in the Education sector. One of my friends who works with extramarks.com (education portal) had suggested that they are receiving amazing traffic with less effort. More over students get many freebies there, like for example students are always in the need of the previous year question papers, and you get them free online and the more internet savvy are all set to gain from this. This sounds like a win win situation, thought it brings me to the other question i.e. Will Print Be Dead?
