Who we are
We are a group of students from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur motivated towards making a lasting change in the Indian education system. Education is a basic human right and should be available to an individual irrespective of his financial background. We believe that educational resources should be freely distributed and accessible to all rather than being a luxury to a privileged few as happening presently. We felt that the best way to initiate our mission was to make quality educational resources available free of cost. Having cleared one of the most competitive engineering entrance examinations in India (IIT-JEE) ourselves, we felt that it was a good way to start with making IIT-JEE preparatory resources available free of cost.
Our team consists of individuals who are highly motivated towards social causes, education in particular. We have been involved in different areas of the social and educational sectors throughout our school and university education and aspire to continue the same after graduation. While some of us have experience in teaching Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, others have been involved in a wide range of organizations like Dakshana Foundation, AIESEC, and Kshitij (Asia's largest techno-management fest). We also have people with wide experience in utilization of web 2.0 for making impactful changes. Thus, we make a balanced and dedicated team.
"1 Goal, Free education for all"
We at Collegepedia.in believe that educational resources are a necessity for all and should be freely distributed. Our mission reflects the belief that education at all levels - primary, secondary and higher education should be made available free of cost to all sections of the society.
Our vision is:

- To improve efficiency of Indian education system
