Agartala: July 25. The utility model of an adaptive teaching and learning system using the Learner Matrix in tertiary education has been granted a patent from Germany under the ‘innovation’ category.
All these years researchers were mainly considering examination-based patterns to evaluate the learning abilities of the students. However, for the first time, a novel approach has been innovated by two researchers, i.e., Prof. Debarshi Mukherjee, Jamia Millia Islamia University, New Delhi, and Subhayan Chakraborty, a research scholar of the Department of Business Management, Tripura University under the supervision of Prof. Mukherjee.
It is to be mentioned here that Prof. Mukherjee was the former HoD of the Department of Business Management at Tripura University and Chakraborty is working with the Panchayat Department, Government of Tripura as Panchayat Resource Development Officer. Their utility model of an adaptive teaching and learning system using the Learner Matrix in tertiary education has been granted a patent from Germany under the ‘innovation’ category.
It is the first patent of the state in social science research. The utility model explores the innate learning abilities among the students and prepares a comparative analysis within a class to help the teachers monitor individual performances effectively. The research has been carried out in the Debarshi Mukherjee Lab where the team is working on developing a new technology to measure the spheres of learning more accurately.
