10 Minute School (Bengali: ১০ মিনিট স্কুল, abbreviated as 10MS) is the largest online educational platform in Bangladesh created in 2015 by internet entrepreneur Ayman Sadiq.[2] The platform covers academic classes from classes 1 to 12 covering the entire academic syllabus of the Bangladesh schooling system, university admission subjects covering different branches of study, and skills training.[3]

History[edit]

In 2012, Ayman Sadiq, founder of 10 Minute School, started teaching students in batches and soon realized he could help more students if he used a combination of online and offline means.[4] With the realization of a need for a more convenient approach of delivering educational contents with ease and efficiency, he sought inspiration from a few YouTube tutorial channels, and planned to create a platform where students could get much needed support for the local courses in Bangladesh.[5] He founded 10 Minute School in mid 2014.[6]

Largely self-sponsored in the beginning, 10 Minute School did not initially have a website and solely reached students through educational info graphics.[7] It gradually gained momentum and started creating video tutorials for Math and English and eventually started taking live classes on Facebook.[8] Received exceedingly well among students, 10 Minute School went on to cover the entire academic syllabus from classes 1 through 12, university admission subjects covering everything from public to private university examinations and extensive software and skills training.[9]

While one of the major challenges for the organization back then was to find a suitable sponsor to fund its operational activities, it later came to be supported by telecom operator Robi Axiata Ltd and the ICT Ministry of Bangladesh.[10]

Contents[edit]

As of Jul;y 2018, the website produced 4000 video lessons, 100 SmartBooks, 3965 quizzes and 255 live classes.[11]
