Classle helps students who lost their books in the Chennai floods with free online books and courses
 
 
The rains and the subsequent flooding in Chennai has left behind a large scale destruction. Along with loss of property, the floods have severely impacted the education of both school and college students. The fact that colleges and schools are closed for almost one month, along with students' textbooks and notebooks being washed way in the Chennai floods has made life very difficult for the students to focus on a very essential aspect of their lives; learning.
 
To provide our support to the future of our country, we are providing an alternate and easy way to ensure their education doesn't get severely impacted!
 
For school students, we have converted the Tamilnadu Samacheer textbooks into online books. These live books have video lectures where the content of the books are explained. Instead of reading the books, students can now see and listen to the concepts explained. At the moment these books are available for maths and science for standard 6,7, and 8 in both Tamil and English medium. 
 
You can access the material for free at : http://clsl.in/cu
 
 
For college students, we have online courses for subjects that students would be writing in the forthcoming semester examinations. The courses tagged are completely free and are available for 7 engineering streams.

Smarter Learner Series : Your guide to succeeding in an online course
Smarter Learner
 
Digitization has taken the world by storm. Right from billing systems to health care, going digital has made things easier to handle, scale, and use. Among all fields, education is one that may see the biggest change of all. Learning is getting easier, simpler, and more insightful through new-age learning approaches such as online courses, and its usefulness keeps growing by the day. 
 
The key reasons for this learning evolution are time and convenience. Taking up an online course may sound easy, but it still requires effort, time management, self-motivation, focus, and most importantly, the desire to learn. 
 
If you are new to online learning and have just enrolled in for a course, you may have questions running through your mind. “How do I get the most out of my online course?” you may wonder, or “How is this different from classroom learning?” By following a few easy, effective principles, a learner can profit enormously through online courses in terms of cost, learning effectiveness, and even cashable reputation. 
 
1. Becoming Tech Savvy: 
 
Technology is the ultimate vehicle for online learning, so you need to know it better to learn online courses at ease. This means that you should know the basic functions of computers like Microsoft applications, how to save files, downloading, connecting to the internet, using email ID, and fixing minor issues. As an online learner, you will be working most of your assignments and tests in your device, so it is best to know how to use tools like Excel, MS Word, PowerPoint, etc. Most importantly, you should use these technologies productively and efficiently for your learning.  
 
2. Ensure that you have a Reliable Internet Connection: 
 
Internet hiccups happen all the time. Having a stable and fast internet connection is very important for a hitch-free learning experience. This ensures that all the videos play without having to wait for them to buffer, and also navigate across the different elements in an online course such as tests, forums, etc. with ease.
Reliable internet is standard in western countries and in Tier-1 cities in India, but what about Tier-2, Tier-3 cities or rural villages? Or you may be traveling, and want to learn while you are onboard? For such scenarios, platform providers such as Classle and others provide the option of taking the learning experience offline using a mobile app. Such hybrid online/offline models take learning to the edges of the country, increasing the accessibility and / or increasing the convenience 
 
3. Dedicated Study Space/Area:
 
A good study environment will help you learn better, so make sure you find the right studying place and ensure that the place is quiet, organized, and free of distractions. Nowadays, you don’t have to choose between office and home for online learning. Through the mobile app feature in online learning, you can learn on the go, wherever and whenever you want. The only concern you should have is enabling that study routine.
 
4. Login Every Day – Manage your Learning time well:
 
Most online courses go on for 4 to 6 months, many even lesser, with a dedicated number of hours to be spent per week. Thus, taking a few minutes every day to log in will help you stay in step with your online class. Keep checking for updates, set time limits, and have an effective calendar system. 
 
5. Learn, Practice, and Repeat: 
 
In order to have a complete understanding of what you’re learning, you need to practice. Online learning gives you the flexibility to learn, practice, and repeat. For example, if you score low in a test, you can always go back to the videos, learn again, and retake the test to score better. Furthermore, while working on online assignments, you can study from the course material, extra references, online discussions, etc. Doing all this will help you learn better and faster, all at your convenience.
 
6. Participate in Online Discussions:
 
The beauty of online learning is that though one is on their own, they do not learn in isolation. You can always connect with your peers and fellow learners through groups and forums. Participate actively and respectfully in the group discussions and online activities. Make suggestions, give tips, and share resources and new ideas, and get similar insights from others as well.  
 
7. Connect with your Online Instructor: 
 
When you have a doubt or are stuck with some concept you don’t understand, you can always contact your online instructor for help. This will not only help you, but also your peers, and it will give the instructor an insight into how well their students are learning.
 
8. Have Fun and Enjoy the Experience:
 
This is the most important tip of all. For online learning to be fun and exciting, you should do interesting things that will be productive and enjoyable. Organize study group meetings and competitions. Share relevant resources to your learning groups. Make friends and create a network through blogs and forums. Make the most of your learning time!  
 
 
Start following these tips and you will be able to make your online learning more fun and effective. Happy Learning!

12 Things You Need To Know About Ayurvedic and Yogic Living

Ayurveda Yoga

On June 21, 2015, the entire world came together to celebrate the very first International Yoga Day. The message of the importance of good health and well-being was shared in the form of public speeches at Yoga Day meets, and as updates on social media too. However, the awareness of physical and mental well-being cannot be restricted to just one day alone, can it? In order to understand how one can maintain good, all-round health, Yoga Expert and Ayurvedic Doctor Surinder Katoch shares 12 important points that are essential for Ayurvedic and Yogic Living.

 

1)   Yoga means union. When we perform Yoga, there first has to be a union of the body and the mind. Only then do we proceed further to experience the actual benefit of yoga ­­--- harmony in our body, mind, and soul, and peace within.

2)    Yoga should not be practised and considered like any other physical exercise. It is to be done in a stepwise manner, preferably under the guidance of an instructor.

3)    It is a common misconception that the term ‘Ayurveda’ means treatment of herbs. It is not just that. ‘Ayurveda’ is made of two words - Ayu+ Veda. Ayu means life and veda means science. Ayurveda, thus, is the science of life. It is all about holistic health, and it gives detailed guidelines on how to remain physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually healthy. 

4)    It is important for everyone to know the status of the body constitution (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and the mind constitution (Satva, Rajas, Tamas) that they are born with. Rather than a generalized approach, Ayurveda follows an individualistic approach, and considers every person as unique and as a separate entity.

5)    Ayurvedic Dietetics lays stress upon the Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Satva, Rajas, and Tamas characteristics of food. It suggests that our body and mind constitution does not depend only upon the food items that what we eat, but also on the time and the manner of consumption of food. Not just that, but what we do before and after eating also counts.

6)    In Ayurveda, there are three pillars of health. Collectively termed ‘Traya Upstambh’, the three pillars are Aahaar (food), Nidra (sleep) and Brahmacharya (conduct like Brahman and celibacy).

7)    An Ayurvedist lays a lot of stress on these three pillars. Proper night sleep is considered as 50% of treatment, and this works as a natural rejuvenation technique.

8)    According to Ayurveda, it is important to listen to your body, mind, and soul, and then act. As mentioned earlier, one must know their body-mind constitution during times of good and bad health. This will help one identify causes of diseases during periods of illnesses, stop them, make an action plan accordingly, and work at their physical, mental, social, and spiritual level to awaken their own healing power.

9)    Ayurvedists advice that it is best to retire to sleep by 10 p.m. every day, and wake up at 5 a.m.

10)   Maintaining a good work-life balance will also guarantee well-being. It is important to manage one’s time no matter how busy one’s schedule can get.

11)   Physical activity is imperative in order to lead a healthy life. A 30-minute walk and a 45-minute Yoga session in the morning, and an hour-long work out in the evening (be it sports/aerobics/dancing/swimming or any other work out of your choice) will keep you fit and fine.

12)   Panchakarma – a detoxification technique – is highly recommended by Ayurvedists since it aids in the cleansing one’s body of toxins. Panchakarma can be done twice a year in order to clean the channels of the body and keep it strong and healthy.

Apart from these 12 points, there are many other ways, as suggested by Dr. Katoch, to achieve good health and mental peace. Let’s take the first step towards leading a balanced life by putting to practice these tips on Ayurvedic and Yogic Living.
