Ruangguru Presents New Innovations in Roboguru Features
Indonesian edtech startup, Ruangguru, presents the latest innovation for the roboguru feature that can make it easier for students to learn. This innovation allows students to watch video concepts related to these questions.
It can also be used by students who have difficulty understanding the answers to these questions to discuss. Therefore, it’s not only makes students know the answer to a problem, but also understands the concept of the teaching.
“We hope that this innovation can be an effective solution to help students complete homework at home, where students continue to receive material explaining lesson concepts and can discuss with each other, not just copying answers,” said the Head of K12 Product Ruangguru, Stephanie Hardjo, in an official statement received, Tuesday (23/2/2021).
The presence of this innovation also helps students who are still doing Distance Learning or PJJ due to the pandemic. It’s because the company had conducted an internal survey and concluded that there were some of the biggest challenges faced by students during PJJ.
The difficulty to understand the lessons without teacher explanation, getting more assignments without more varied and interactive learning, taking longer to learn and doing assignments, to barriers to communication with teachers are some of the difficulties during the PJJ.
Ruangguru presents several new abilities in the roboguru feature, ne of them is a combination of photo search technology and user-generated content to make it easier for students to ask solutions to difficult questions or to discuss with other students throughout Indonesia.
It also presents learning videos to help students understand concepts with accurate solution recommendations. It’s available for all levels including all major subjects. This feature itself is accessed via the Ruangguru application or messages via WhatsApp. This feature can be accessed by its users without additional subscription fees.
