SMS TO 9848819288
Given the sms accessiblity in india, way2college decided to use this approach so people from distant location can also get information. Our motto is "Education for all" and this one step further in our motto. So far we haverecieved huge response. Thousands of questions have already been asked through SMS. We need to further work on technology and make it more robust.
Why we started this service?
Recently we had started a service where people could leave their phone number on website with their question and answer will automatically go to their sms. We got an overwhelming response for the service and decided to enable users to send questions also on SMS. With the launch of this service we are impacting our own web traffic but helping millions of students who don't have internet access.
Currently this service is available to people in india. In future we plan to enhance and make it available to people outside india specially gulf countries. We are also measuring the metrics of response time and continuously working on improving response time. Although it will take some time before we make it a real time service. Everyone is welcome to use this service and give us feedback. This mobile number belongs to AndhraPradesh so it will be a std sms for other states. We will make local numbers available to other states as service grow.
