A day before exams, most students are seen hunting for question papers to refer to. Students of Gujarat Technological University need not worry about sourcing these any longer. The varsitys alumni have created an android app which will deliver study material, question papers, syllabus and much more to the students directly on their smart phones or tablets. Launched on May 11, the app called GTU downloads is the brainchild of Ritesh Ambastha, the founder of iwillstudy.com. It can be got for free through Google Play, an android app store. The app is helpful for students of all engineering branches, MCA and MBA streams.
Students can download the latest syllabus and also use the study materials on the website. There is a share option through email, Facebook, Twitter, messaging, Skype, Dropbox, blog etc, says Ritesh. The downloadable materials are collected via user-generated content on various student networks. Students can upload additional study material, assignments etc. They can get an admit card on the device. We are working on applications for iPhones and Nokia phones so that there can be a wider reach, he says. It is unfortunate that the technical university itself does not have a single application. Students are quite tech-savvy. Most of them have access to smartphones. Why run around for question paper banks or syllabus when everything can be brought together on a phone he asks. So, former GTU students and a team of developers got together to help and support varsity students by providing easy access to study material and question papers, said Ritesh, who completed his engineering from C U Shah Engineering college in Wadhwan in 2006. He did his post-graduation from IIT Bombay. He left his job in 2010 to start iwillstudy.com. The team is currently in talks with Gujarat Technical University so that students can check their results or get regular updates of the university through the app. According to Google policies, a free application will be free forever. So, the worry that someday this will become a paid version is not correct, he asserts.
