Online tuitions the next 'in-thing' (India)
12 Oct, 2006 1155hrs ISTPTI ]

NEW DELHI: After BPO, it is the turn of ESO now. For thousands of teachers here, tuitions have become a dollar spinner, thanks to the growing demand for online tutorials from USA, UK and Europe.

According to an online tutorial site, nearly 100,000 teachers from India and Pakistan were expected to set up their own internet businesses during September-October, the time when the new academic session begins in America, to teach students there.

"Educational Services Outsourcing (ESO) definitely seems to be the next 'in-thing'. Education is a growing sector and the demand for Indian educators is on the rise," says Kiran Karnik, President, NASSCOM.

"Indian educators are respected globally and held in high esteem. We must capitalise on this opportunity," he says.
