ICSE ONLINE Tutorials- Why?
Why Target ICSE?
Target ICSE has been in the e-learning scenario for quite some time now and while thousands of students have benefitted from this new mode of learning, some students and guardians are still shrouded in veils of doubt about the ‘why’s and ‘how’s of this new medium. We, the founders of Target ICSE claim that Target ICSE is the best thing that could happen to your child as s/he prepares for ICSE. But why should you believe it? Well, our answer to that is do not believe it until you have reasoned and judged it for yourself. To do just that you need to go through the following. This has been complied from the questions we commonly receive through phone/ email.
What does Target ICSE offer to my child?
Target ICSE offers to your child Online Study Help in the following subjects:
English I, English II, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History & Civics, Geography. You can enroll in one or more of the above subjects, depending on your requirement. We have 3 types of courses:
1. Online Self Study 2. ICSE Fastrak and 3. Online Tutoring.
What do you mean by “Online Study Help”?
Online Study Help is a rather vague term actually. What we would like to introduce to you at this point is the concept of the Learning Management System or LMS, which is the delivery method for our tutorials.
A Learning Management System (or LMS) is a software package that enables the management and delivery of learning content and resources to students. Most LMS systems are web-based to facilitate “anytime, anywhere” access to learning content and administration. The LMS facilitates student registration, the delivery and tracking of e-learning courses and content, and testing.
What are the benefits of LMS over books?
An obvious plus point of an LMS is that it allows the use of videos so that the subject comes across as very alive. So imagine seeing Rosalind talking to Orlando before your eyes, or imagine seeing clippings from World War I/II, speeches of leaders such as Gandhi and Netaji. See the various experiments in Biology / Chemistry and see how the Galvanometer works! Can any book match that? Well, NO!
The other major benefit is that, all study material is stored online, all assignments are evaluated and graded online and the student can access the same at any time and any place. No need to carry books to your cousin’s place in your next summer vacation. All you need is a computer/ laptop and an internet connection.
What are the different types of tutorials and what are the fees?
There are three types of courses, all of which have a onetime fee that remains valid for one session:
1) Online Self Study @ Rs. 600/- per subject
2) ICSE Fastrak Rs. 3000/- for each of the following subjects : History& Civics / Geography/ English I/ English II/Physics/ Chemistry/ Biology
3) Online Tutor Help + Access to Online Study Material @ Rs. 7,200/- per subject
What is the difference between the courses and why are they priced so differently?
Course 1 – Online Self Study @ Rs. 600/- per subject – gives your child access to our Learning Management System (LMS) for the entire session. This includes comprehensive coverage of all chapters in the syllabus, solved and unsolved questions and self assignments, tests and quizzes.
Course 2 – ICSE Fastrak – gives your child access to our Learning Management System (LMS) for the entire session, and all the features of Course 1, but also includes the Doubt Clearing Study Sessions which provide active and individualized tutor help/ guidance for 2 hrs every month in every subject enrolled. In the Doubt Clearing Sessions, students can ask any questions pertaining to the subject. They are also given general tips and strategies about studying and answering questions for getting optimum marks.
Course 3 – Online Tutor Help + Access to Online Study Material @ Rs. 7,200/- per subject – not only gives your child access to our Learning Management System (LMS) for the entire session, and all the features of Course 1, but also includes the Study Sessions which provide active and individualized tutor help/ guidance for 1 hr every week in every subject enrolled, evaluation of assignments, counseling and parent feedback.
What are Study Sessions?
Study Sessions provide active and individualized tutor help/ guidance for 1 hr every week in every subject enrolled. So for example, if you enroll for Physics, Chemistry and Biology, you will have 3 separate study sessions of 1 hour each every week with 3 teachers.
The study session is fixed in consultation with the student. During this study session, students can clarify difficult concepts, their evaluated assignments are discussed and they are guided how to write model answers so as to get optimum marks.
Is Online Study any good? Is it not a waste of time?
Far from being a waste of time, as some people misconceive, Online Learning is all about efficient time management. If you choose to take the Online Self Study only, it will be an invaluable addition/ complement to your regular study. You can access the material when and where you want.
But if you take the Online Tutor Help + Access to Online Study Material, the benefits are even more:
1. Firstly it saves you the time and money you spend in commuting to and from the tutorial homes.
2. Secondly, you get individual attention from an expert teacher, something that you can only dream of in conventional coaching.
3. Thirdly, you can access the material when and where you want.
4. Fourthly, you get the chance to write answers all through the year and your assignments are checked and discussed in the Study Sessions. A few months into the course and you can see a marked improvement in your writing and presentation skills.
5. PDF Copies are sent to you to serve as notes for those times when you want a quick revision or when the internet connection is down.
