सर्वेभ्यः संस्कृतदिनस्य शुभाशयाः ।
I work for a company called Ideas Software and Consulting Pvt. Ltd, based in Bangalore. This company has a Linguistics Unit, which is working for developing tools (academic and others) for Sanskrit. I have been working with this company since two years. Our first product was Samskrita Baalaamodini, an interactive multimedia CD ROM for children to learn basic Sanskrit. We have recently released an improved version of this CD.
On this Sanskrit day, we have released an online portal for Sanskrit Learning, called ‘vyoma-samskrta-pathashala’ (www.sanskritfromhome.in). This portal is meant to be a collaborative platform for Sanskrit students and teachers. Initially, we have a few courses running, for Beginners in Sanskrit, and school students. We have plans to introduce a number of other courses in the coming days, to cater to various groups of people who are interested in learning Sanskrit. Both Self-learning, and teacher-assisted courses are being planned. The product is still at it’s infancy – I would be very glad if you took some time to look at our site, and give your feedback/suggestions for improvement.
The Ashtadhyayi course, of which I had informed you, will also be conducted through this portal. Details regarding timings of the class will be made available by next week. I will send a separate mail regarding that to everybody who had expressed interest in that course.
Thanks and regards,
