IIT Kanpur was the first institute in India to start a Computer Science department. IITK has a rich base of alumni in this space who have made a remarkable impact around the world (Dr. Arvind Krishnan, CEO IBM, Dr. Rajeev Motwani, Google mentor, Dr. Narayan Murthy, Founder Infosys, Mr. Amit Agarwal, CTO Amazon to name a few).
While education is impacted some of the institutions continue to do well as they have realized the importance of practice. There is no substitution to practice. While other jobs are impacted due to COVID 19 coding jobs are still in demand.
Teaching introductory programming is difficult. The problems are:
To solve this, Dr. Amey Karkare at IIT Kanpur has developed software - Prutor, that is being used at IIT Mumbai, IIT Goa, IIT Kanpur, IISC Bangalore, and IISER Bhopal.
Prutor is a proprietary technology of IIT Kanpur, developed under the guidance of Prof Amey Karkare, Department of CSE, IIT Kanpur. To enhance and widespread the software Prutor, this technology was Transferred to Robust Results Private Limited in 2015 under revenue-sharing basis with IIT Kanpur. Since 2015 Robust Results has been working under the guidance of Dr. Amey and has added numerous features to the software. Prutor is also being used by ICT Academy, IIT Kanpur for conducting courses - CSS and Python for AKTU (33,000+, 2nd year BTech students).
Most of the IIT's and other top institutes in India are using Prutor. We are giving you the opportunity to use Prutor. You can use the same paralogical approach as used by IIT Kanpur to teach programming.
