Bangalore, India, May 12, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Bangalore-based education technology startup Butterfly Innovations has announced the beta launch of its first product, COLLPOLL, on May 31, 2014.
COLLPOLL is a personalized interaction platform for colleges and other academic institutions where students, faculty, and administrators can share ideas, opinions and information about academic matters, student life, and career issues in a common, conveniently accessible platform. COLLPOLL enables real time and secure interactions among a multitude of users at the same time. In the first phase of its rollout, it will be deployed in several institutions across India.
Hemant Sahal, founder, Butterfly Innovations, believes COLLPOLL has the power to redefine higher education globally. “We believe that colleges across the world have become isolated from the larger society they’re a part of. We aim to reconnect and reengage all stakeholders in colleges to create an open and interconnected education system,” he says. The benefits of such a connected learning environment have been well supported by the indepth research the Butterfly team has conducted with over 1,000 students, faculty and administrators in 50 plus institutions across India.
The nine-month-old startup has the backing of key advisors including Balachandran Warrier, CEO, Manipal Foundation, Sunil Madhani, Director, Innovation & Advanced Technology at Intuit, Murli Nagasundram, Principal of Learning Innovation at Manipal Global and Pranav Awasthi, Principal, Oracle India.
