Tech Mahindra launches first of its kind 'Meta Village' to gamify learning

Meta Village

Tech Mahindra R&D arm Makers Lab has now revealed a metaverse platform known as Meta Village on Roblox for students from rural India who want to learn the basics of coding and computer science in their native language.

The company revealed that this initiative is a part of its commitment to promoting skill development and technical education in rural India.

Executive Opinion

Nikhil Malhotra, Global Head – Makers Lab, Tech Mahindra, said, "We believe that education systems must constantly reinvent to leverage innovative approaches and new technologies to their full potential. Metaverse is one such disruptive technology that has the power to revolutionize learning through immersive digital experiences. With the launch of Meta Village, Tech Mahindra will harness the power of Metaverse to build innovative solutions that can have a positive impact on society. A part of TechMVerse, Meta Village will gamify the learning process for children in rural India, thereby providing them with an opportunity to develop the crucial technical skills needed to become tomorrow’s disruptors."

Metaverse Platform

Training via the Meta Village will first start with the students in Pargaon, a village in Maharashtra. The students will be able to join the live classroom and offline sessions in the Meta Village.

Makers Lab is already offering training to students in the basics of computers and in Bharat Markup language (BHAML), a web-based editor developed by the Makers Lab that allows HTML coding in the mother tongue.

As per the report, Tech Mahindra will use metaverse to build innovative solutions for society. The IT company’s forays into the Metaverse started this February when it revealed TechMVerse, an initiative to use its expertise in AI, 5G, AR/VR, and blockchain to build and offer immersive experiences to customers in the metaverse.
